Re: whatsapp version 2.8.6 crashing

Hi rahul1087,


Thanks for your post and welcome to the forum.


Please delete Whatsapp off your phone by long pressing the application and pressing Delete. Restart the phone and reinstall the application by opening your Nokia Store. You can redownload the application via the My Stuff section.


If the above doesn't work, delete the application again and perform a hard reset and a software update before reinstalling the app to resolve the issue.


Connect your phone to Nokia Suite and make a back up via Tools > Back up. Don't tick the Settings box. Disconnect the phone from Nokia Suite when you have created the back up and enter *#7370# into your phone, the default security code is 12345 unless you have changed this code yourself. 


Now reconnect with Nokia Suite and click on the green arrow where an update will be listed. If no update is shown please reinstall the current software, this option will be displayed in blue. Once the phone has rebooted, go to Tools > Restore to restore the back up onto your phone, then reinstall Whatsapp once more as indicated above. 


This should resolve any failure from the application itself or your phone's software. Please keep me update on your progress.





If my post has helped you in any way, please accept it as a solution or click on the white star, so that other users will be able to benefit from it too.
