Default Help with WhatsApp?

Please Login to Remove!

Dear Forumers,

I have downloaded and installed WhatsApp 4.6 but it gets stuck at the "Registering" part.

Here is a screen shot of the error:

OOPS! I can not post a link since I have less than 10 posts but it gets stuck where it says "Registering..............." and it keeps making endless dots.

I also tried installing version 4.5 but it gets stuck in the second process (TCP/BIS Check), and later versions (4.7 and 5.0) don't even work.. they just give me this error: "Error starting whatsapp: Class 'net.rim.device.api.ui.Touch Screen' not found".

Please help me.

My carrier is MobinilEgy and I am using a Curve 8520.

Thank you so much.

Thank you for moving it. I'm pretty new and I don't know the sections well.

I really hope someone can help me with this. Things were much easier with my iPhone, I am starting to miss it already. Especially since the BlackBerry browser is, in all honesty, crappy. Opera Mini is even worse.

:(

What OS are you running? Are you getting WhatsApp from AppWorld?

You cannot install 4.7 or 5.0 software on a 4.5 device.

Have you tried setting your carrier APN info in the device? It sounds to me like the app cannot connect to its registration server.

I never got it from App Worldbecause I can not install App World on my device for some reason. It says something like "Your device is not supported" or what ever.

Dougsg38p, I am pretty sure my carrier's APN info is there and just fine since I can do pretty much everything else on the internet using my device.

How can I update to 5.0?

I successfully installed App World using a method on the internet (can't post link here because I don't have 10 posts yet).

However, I can not download WhatsApp using it as Paid For applications are not available for my country. :(

I HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP ME. I DOWNLOADED THE BETA FROM WHATSAPP.
When I installed it in my ipod touch I had no problems whatsoever.
Now I have a BB 8520 Curve and my problem is that it can't sent an sms to my device, it gives an error.....so there is no way to execute the programm. I sent a mail to whatsapp, and they sent me troubleshooting tips, but not even going through the whole list I can make whatsapp work. Someone please to light my day..... thanks......
