    Hello to all!
    I just purchased a 9720 'cause i like its design and i wanted a smartphone with a keyboard.
    Unfortunately, I found out that whatsapp no longer supports this device

    There is any way to make it work? For example installing an older version?
    thanks

    Love the 9720. Used it for three years till September 2016. OTA updates, FM radio, extra side button, swipe up to unlock, quick access camera: BB10 features (mostly) on BBOS. If I remember correctly whatsapp should still be available for BBOS 7.1 till End of June. But you will need BIS. You need to contact your provider for this. I know Vodafone UK still offer it. Hope you sort it.

    Whatsapp works on my Storm2 and Bold 9900 without BIS. You need the beta: https://beta.whatsapp.com/ota/

    It works on my 9720 too, but if you go into the info screen, it says that it will work until june 2017.
    Any way to make it work after this date?

    Probably not.

    Whatsapp requires the app to be up to date in order to work, and the app is updated frequently.

    I trust them when they say it will not work after June (unless they choose to extend the time frame again).
