    It's here.....

    http://www.theiexplorers.com/OTA/

    Just click the Facebook link for OS7.1 and download it. Takes about 30 seconds. Then find it among your apps on your home screen and log in.

    But the weird thing is the messenger is not supposed to work anymore, but mine does.

    Let me know if it works for you

    If the app doesn't work then I don't know. I don't even mind using the browser version now, it works pretty good, complete with notifications and everything. For me anyway.

    Yeah I absolutely loved my 9790 it's just it it never liked the latest iOS 7.1 when I had it in 2013 it kept jamming up and eventually have sold it for $40. Also the charging connection was getting a little weak and it had to be straightened right out to charge. If I knew about pod chargers in 2013 I probably would've bought one if they were able to be used on the 9790. Yes the keyboard was very smooth no real clickiness on the 9790 keyboard, not as crisp. But the 9900 is certainly not as brutal and exhausting as my 9780,you were actually exhausted after a three hour conversation with your girlfriend on BBM with that thing!

    See if Facebook online messenger works with your 9790

    It's a pity that ATT will stop 2g support soon in 2017. I can't try my 9930 on that carrier, but verizon still has 3g for now.

    I agree. Rogers is preparing to shutdown 2G and when they do, my Pearl Flip and Storm 2 will be WiFi only.

    I'm happy with that, but then I don't use WhatsApp.
    Ditto. I wouldn't even think about using a messenger run by Facebook.

    With 1 billion people in the world now literally using WhatsApp, everyone (chances are) that we know is there. I can't think of another more popular messenger that I rely on that is a better bridge to people that do not want to use BBM or have anything to do with it. The only other good one that I use is Snapchat messenger which is quite good but WhatsApp really is a full-featured messenger and I've never had an error before. It will be quite a blow when they will take this away from us.

    So sometimes in a Fringe area my 9900 switches to edge. At least on edge I can still make a call, so this will suck royally.

    So they will end support for 2G while not having complete 3G coverage? That is actually dangerous especially if somebody gets into difficulty and needs to call for help. All these companies ending support for things that don't need to have support ended is quite sad, it must be all money motivated. My iPhone 6 has never had a 4G signal even though it's 4G enabled and I live in an area where I actually have had 4G on three different networks and I'm pretty sure it's an issue with my phone since day one because it always goes to 2G when I use the network connection even when I'm in the most metropolitan areas with the most advanced network speeds.

    It is amazing the number of people on Whatsapp. My Haitian friends can chat with me for free and not eaten in days. It seems we just keep making more apps to do the same thing, communicate.

    Even my Indonesian friends in Jakarta are using BBM less and less and they don't always use Whatsapp either, they prefer LINE. I had used LINE on my iphone 2 years ago and it was pretty good. You get a profile and a wall in Facebook Style and I can't complain about it too much. BUT now only 2 people I know really use LINE regularily so I removed it and told them I will see them in Whatsapp.

    Don't even get me started on Viber, that was a decent setup but it constantly crashed and you had to shout into the mic for the other person to hear you in a voice clip.

    Whatsapp remains king of the Messengers.

    Do I need to keep the app open in order to receive notifications? Or will I receive notifications even after closing the app?

    When I am ONLINE in the FB app then I receive notifications. I don't always receive notifications if I go OFFLINE and sometimes leaving the ONLINE page will make it go OFFLINE.

    BUT....

    I also use the Browser version of Facebook and I keep it bookmarked. I usually get notifications from there if I am ONLINE and I keep it running in the background if I am doing other things. I can run 7 apps with no issues.
