8700 Whatsapp???? os
 
i was using whats app perfectly fine then i changed my plan and i restarted my blackberry 8700 and then whats app wouldnt work and said if you have recently installed it on another device it will need reinstalling so i deleted it and now i cant reinstall it because it says my os is not up to date. i am running 4.5 but says i need 4.6

so my question is: where can i download os 4.6 for blackberry 8700?

thanks for your help

Ispat - please stop posting when you have no idea what you are talking about. Enough is enough.

Steeevo, there is no 4.6 for the 8700. The latest is 4.5. The 8700 is a very old BlackBerry.

You'll probably have to trawl the Internet for the old COD file.

You also will need the ALX file. Sorry for forgetting that.

well this is rubbish, there surely must be someone out there in the same situation as me, who has an 8700 with 4.5 os and wants whats app?

Why not try Whatsapp support page, and check with other users to see if they have downloaded and/or installed an older version.

I have not used an 8700 in 5 years. it is an old device and you cant expect much to be written for it. Most developers are writing for SO 5 and higher.

I see some 8300 on ebay for about 50 bucks.

Actually I met with the same problem and Google brought me here when I searched for solutions on the web. I think the problem is Whatsapp no longer support os 4.6. Now I use Whatsapp on BB9700 and Android. Time to move on, :razz:

expecting an old phone like a 8700 to run todays apps is like expecting a yugo to be a F1 racing car.

tsac 10-24-2012 08:52 PM

Re: 8700 Whatsapp???? os
 
Ok so maybe an F2 or even F3
