    I have gifted my old Z10 to my girlfriend's son. He is 13 and this is his first cell phone.

    We couldn't get Whatsapp on it, but did successfully install Telegram so he can message mum.

    Apparently, he also has 4 girls on his contacts list as well...

    Did you load the latest OS 10.3.3.3216 with an autoloader so all your stuff got wiped before gifting?

    Instructions on how to get WhatsApp on BB10 have been posted multiple times. Is that what you tried?

    WhatsApp should work on the Z10 if you point his browser and download and install from here: https://www.whatsapp.com/android/ . However, Telegram is just as good if not better imho , and it's better to have only one android messaging app on BB10 if possible.

    Honestly that's almost a punishment for a 13 year old in 2019. He's not going to have access to all the apps kids use to socialize and it will isolate him. It'd be better to give him any old Android device.

    Nope, just did a factory reset. Never bothered with autoladers.

    Haha, that was my thought. I suggested we buy him a cheap Android. But my girlfriend suggested the Z10 would be fine. She just wants to be able to keep in touch with him.

    it depends on the character of 13 yr old - if he is geeky, he would use z10 to the full advantage by utilize every bit of it - until the school issue apps that either iOS or droid (that happen to 2 kids I gave them BBOS and BB10). Currently, one of them still use 9860 at 2nd yr university with a Key1 as side kick (wifi only). She knew possibly more tricks than me to get the 9860 utilized than me ;-).

    Isolate him? Because he can't post to his stories every 20 seconds?
