Troubleshoots for WhatsApp
Samsung users must first ensure that all the requirements for the download process are met for the process to be successful. Having a Samsung smartphone running with an Android version of at least 2.1 is one of them. The phone's Android version can be checked by going to settings, security, then to the unknown sources. Another requirement is to confirm the right country from the list provided. If users still do not get the pin, it is possible to request for a voice call instead.
To have your WhatsApp application working correctly, is important to double-check that internet is properly connected to a WI-FI or 3G internet. If users still encounter any issues, it is appropriate to check if a Task Killer application is not interfering with the installation. If the problem is persisting, it is best to first uninstall the app and then reinstall the new version again.
In some instances, some users were not able to see the 'Last Seen' timestamp in a conversation. In this case, the timestamp might have been disabled. It can be easily re-enabled by going into Settings, Account, Privacy, and by finally checking then 'Last Seen' checkbox.
