How do I get Whatsapp to work on my phone?

  geek84 10:05 22 Feb 2014

Good Morning

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5360 phone. I had and used Whatsapp on the phone for about 12 months. However, it recently started asking me to purchase a few things, which I ignored. However, since yesterday, my Whatsapp has stopped working, although the icon is still on my phone. Would anybody be kind enough to tell me how I can make Whatsapp work on my phone without having to purchase anything?

Thanks in advance for your response.

I don't have this app but a quick google tells me it's only free for the 1st year, after which u need to pay..."First year FREE! ($0.99 USD/year after)"

Hi, I had to pay around 69p for the year as it's now not free after a trial period.

However, there is a scam around, which I received a few days ago. Be careful not to fall for it

It starts of 'Message from Jim Balsamic (CEO of WhatsApp)' and came through as if forwarded from a friend. Check this article
