    Hi, i am intending to buy a Blackberry phone with BB10 OS. I came to know that Facebook would stop Whatsapp service for BB10 later in 2016. So can I download the Whatsapp application from Amazon app store? I am asking this because some of my friends use BB10 phone and a lots of apps from downloaded from Amazon does not work. For example, one my friends could not make the FB app work downloaded from Amazon app store.

    There has been talk that they will cease support at year's end. We just have to wait and see. You may well want to consider BlackBerry Android option.

    Aptoide is full of malware, as are virtually all third-party Android app stores. There's no way I'd ever recommend anyone use anything but Google Play or perhaps Amazon Marketplace.

    Make up your own mind from these answers. Just compare MD5sums with Google Play... :-D

    Kind of difficult to talk all your Whatsapp fellow contacts to migrate to BBM... not that I haven't tried though.

    Maybe they will end the support by the end of this year but I hope app will keep working as the case with FB app(older version still working).
    You may also use android version, can download it from anywhere available, it works on BlackBerry 10 os.

    Was just thinking about why people have a had Tim switching to bbm. It's not like it's a big deal. Then I realized, it's hub. I could never figure why people made such a big deal about using it. They use what's app, snap chat. Fb messenger. But it's all the apps ever single one is a different app. Us blessed ones that use the hub if you get a BBM of text of what's app. It's all the same. Notification shows up in the hub. We can answer from the hub boom done. But for everyone else the have to open up the app. Bla Bla bla close the app or you get a text now open up app.


    The hub rocks. Oh and what's app android app should work. If BlackBerry stops. But I assume they will just stop updating it.

    I leave the BlackBerry Facebook app on my phone to get hub notifications and just added the browser tile to my home screen and use that. You can also get the Google play store on bb10 by following cobalt play store. Very easy to do. And you can get the android app for what's app. I suspect it will continue to work they will just no longer maintain the BlackBerry App and it will slowly get buggy. But the android app will work.

    I'd be glad if I just could use it with this version.
    Just to be available and send/receive some data.

    That would be great!

    But if they cut the lines... I don't know.
    And I don't know why BlackBerry doesn't take any action for a work-around.

    There is probably a year before that happens, From the Nov 2016 Android distribution stats , 4.3 and below are still ~15% of Android devices.
