    Using BB 10

    Guys, if you don't want to switch from BB10 but want to keep WhatsApp, no-one forces you. Nonetheless, there's no other alternative but using the Android version together with Whatsfixer. At the moment, it works fine with the latest apk from WhatsApp's site.

    Take note, that the alternative Nemory offers (WhatsUp10 and his own version of Whatsfixer) are based on the aforementioned, so just go with the originals (which are free, unlike WhatsUp10).

    I've installed the setup on my father's Z30, the last of the family on BB10. He is happy, but I've made him aware that it might break at any point, so in the future, we're considering a Motion for him.

    In my experience, BB10 is awesome, but the app gap does affect several of us. I keep my Passport as backup device, but it could hardly replace my KEYᵒⁿᵉ as main device.

    We were warned by WhatsApp, is the harsh reality of technology. At least there are still alternatives when it comes to certain apps (including WhatsApp), take advantage of these.

    P.S. You can no longer export chat history to Android, since the native BB10 client has ceased connection with WhatsApp's servers. I'd suggest you email your chats, in case you want to keep them, and start from scratch with the workaround or on a new device.

    Hello,

    What about the battery life with using the apk version?

    Due to some issue, today uninstalled whatsapp and tried to install it back while installing got msg (while loading backup) - "whatsapp required google play service to run " installed play service very long back even though am getting this issue for lot of apps.
    When that message appears just tap outside of the box, WhatsApp should work fine after that.

    It'll depend on your usage and it'll be more than the native app as it's running through the runtime but it's quite optimized so it's definitely one of the better Android apps.

    Surprisingly, Disa works well and doesn't need WhatsApp Fixer.

    Granted, had forgot about that alternative. I'd be interested to know how does it compare to the oficial WhatsApp app? Can you make voice or video calls, for instance? Or is it only good for messaging?

    Messaging, voice and video calls, and you can send media like photos and videos. Even you can post stories....
