Whatsapp is one of the most popular and widely used instant messaging app available on various platforms. Talking about the Android phones particularly in this post, the app is available to download either from the Google play store or from the official site of Whatsapp. Whenever a user install this app, the app ask the user to enter the respective phone number for verification. If you’re unable to complete this verification process you can’t use this IM app. User can bypass this verification either through SMS or Voice call verification.
I have seen people accusing Micromax because of this application which isn’t working on their phone. I don’t think there is any kind of problem with Micromax handsets. I am specially writing this post here as I’m getting lot of queries on my site related to this.

Whatsapp Phone Number Verification Failed?
There can be various reasons behind the failure of the phone number verification. The first thing you need to check if there is proper connection of the network provider.
Secondly, try the voice call verification if SMS isn’t reaching your end. If still this issue persist download the latest version of whatsapp from the play store and try again.
Other apps working fine except Whatsapp?
This is the main issue which people are facing. All other apps like opera mini, Facebook works perfectly on their phone but Whatsapp isn’t working.
This issue can be resolved very easily and is associated with the internet settings you have selected.
Follow this method to check the selected internet settings:
Settings–>Mobile Networks–>Access Point Names–> ?
Let me explain this with an example of TATA Docomo connection.
Tata Docomo provides two internet settings by default. One is the Tata Docomo Dive In and the other on is Tata Docomo GPRS. If you have selected the Dive In one then you won’t be able to use this app as that settings doesn’t works with IM apps. So to use whatsapp you need to select Tata Docomo GPRS setting.
It doesn’t depend whether you are using 2G or 3G, you must follow the above method.
So, next time whenever you see whatsapp isn’t working on your device do check your internet settings.
I also noticed users complaining that they are facing issue while sending and receiving multimedia items like Videos, photos. I suggested them to download the latest version and the problem solved but few of them had to contact the whatsapp officials. Whatsapp officials provided a new installation (apk) file and the problem got solved.
There might be some cases in which still the app may not work so in that case you should contact whatsapp officials by mailing them at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
