Re: Whatsapp

 

As you have noticed WhatsApp has been pulled from Marketplace. The reason for this is not known at this time, but we know it will return with an updated version. No timeframe has been given for this. You may want to contact WhatsApp support for more information as this is a 3rd party application.

Re: Whatsapp available again

[ Edited ]

 

The 2.8.0 update of WhatsApp for Windows Phone is now available in Marketplace. You can use the link or the QR code which you can scan using your phone. No list of changes was provided.

 

  • Press the Search searchbutton on your Lumia phone and then tap Visionvision
  • Scan the barcode by pointing your phone at it. You can scan all three in sequence or one at a time.
  • Tap on the link when it appears on your phone (Need help scanning?)
  • Install the application from the Windows Phone Marketplace

 

If this option is not available to you download the app Esponce QR Reader or QR Code Reader as an alternative.

Wow!.. I was struggling to download it as well. I just bought it now and the first thing I wanted was to install Whatsapp. I almost had a heartattack. But the QR code woked fine and now it's downloading..

Re: Whatsapp

If that is the primary account for the device the device then you will need to reset the phone & set it up again using your account as the primary account. You can add your younger brother's account later for contacts/mail etc.
If that has been added at a later stage all you need to do is remove that account.

Re: Whatsapp

Hi sunsetrose

 

Thank you for posting and welcome to Nokia Support Discussions! :Cool:

 

Microsoft child account. Child accounts may have policies configured for contact management which result in Windows Phone being unable to sync with Microsoft account successfully. If this is no longer a child account, read an acticle How to convert a child's Windows Live ID account into an adult account from Microsoft support. Or, to fix the error, follow these steps:

 

  1. Open a web browser and visit http://fss.live.com.
  2. Sign in with the Microsoft parent (primary) account.
  3. Under the Family member section, click Edit settings for the child account having the sign in issue.
  4. Click Contact management, and select to enable Child manages their own contact list. Note After the child Microsoft account successfully signs in, you may revert this setting back to Parent manages the child's contact list.
  5. On your phone, select Start > Settings > Email+accounts.
  6. Tap Windows Live and re-enter your username and password information.
  7. Tap Done. The phone will sync with Microsoft account and sign in successfully.
