    I get messages on my Q5 saying that Whatsapp will not function after June or whenever it was. Would switching to a D-Tek 50 or 60 with Android OS work longer with Whatsapp?

    Yes. Whatsapp is NOT dis-continuing the Android version. Only the Windows and BB10 versions.

    Although I don't use Whatsapp myself I have recently switched from a Classic to Android (PRIV) and found the transition not too bad.

    As we look ahead to our next seven years, we want to focus our efforts on the mobile platforms the vast majority of people use. So, by the end of 2016, we will be ending support for WhatsApp Messenger on the following mobile platforms:

    BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10
    Nokia S40
    Nokia Symbian S60
    Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
    Windows Phone 7
    iPhone 3GS/iOS 6

    While these mobile devices have been an important part of our story, they don't offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app's features in the future.

    This was a tough decision for us to make, but the right one in order to give people better ways to keep in touch with friends, family, and loved ones using WhatsApp. If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone before the end of 2016 to continue using WhatsApp.

    UPDATE: WhatsApp is extending support for BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40 and Nokia Symbian S60 until June 30, 2017.
