    Default Unable to see my friend on wahtsapp

    I am active at whatsapp using Samsung Galaxy Dous S7582 and my friend is active at Nokia Asha 210. But we both are unable to see each other on whatsapp.

    Please let me know what the problem is there?

    Whatsapp works based on phone numbers and has nothing to do with the device you're using. First, make sure that you and your friend have each other's numbers saved on their contact list (that's where Whatsapp looks for contact information). Done?

    Now check that neither has the other phone number in their block list, especially if this is not a new number; it may have been used in Whatsapp before.

    OK, now go into Whatsapp, go to the contact list (where you start a new chat) and hit the Menu button and select "Refresh". This will force Whatsapp to repopulate your list with new contacts. Is he there now?

    If not, try adding the country code for your friend's phone number (for instance, if in the US, add '+1'). Refresh the contact list again? Is he there now?

    If not, try adding an additional '1' after the country code and before the phone number (for international cellphones, this sometimes helps). Refresh contact list again. Is he now in your list?
