    My sons live in the UK and they can connect to me, and then I can reply. I cannot initiate a conversation, it tells me they do not have whatsapp. I'm assuming it's in the way the contact phone number is formatted.

    Thanks, Dave.

    Welcome to AC.

    I'm in the UK myself. So far as I know, the initial 0 is dropped from the number, and replaced by +44.
    It may not be as simple as that however....a friend here recently had trouble when setting up Viber for speaking with a friend in the US. Eventually she succeeded.

    Just F<everyone's>I, 0 is the "country" code for North America (US and Canada). 44 is the country code for the UK.

    For me +44 works as well. Which way are you trying to start the chat, from WhatsApp or from your contact list?
