For some reason, I can't get whatsapp working - it's getting stuck on the "Contacting whatsapp" screen after I enter the authentication phone number , though the internet is connected and other apps can use it. Removed and downloaded it again from the appstore, and restarted the device, but same behavior.
I filed a support ticket on KaiOS site and was actually pretty blown away - they responded in minutes and provided the solution.
I had to reset my device and the whatsapp started connecting. Really did not expect of the * Operating System * support team to be so responsive!
Hi @alex khd,
Great to hear such positive feedback about the KaiOS technical support team. I hope that you also told them this directly? I'm sure they'd like that 😉
Please, could you tell me how you got them connected. I have so many issues to be asked about too..
I am trying to figure if WhatsApp Business will work on a Nokia running KaiOS in India. Does anyone have any experience of this?
WhatsApp KaiOS voice call news
Nokia 800 Tough OS is not updated, WhatsApp neither so this news is fake for top range KaiOS phone users. How can this be?
It is fake. See:
Features:WhatsApp messaging only (No Audio/Video calling)
However I had a far more serious problem. Google contacts initially synced but then failed. Email still works so not a credentials or security issue. Just a bug. Nokia support actually had the gall to suggest I wait for an update whiich they could not promise!
I have returned the phone. I liked the look & feel but that is an essential feature.
