    I have just bought this phone, and I like it. The only problem
    is that my 200 contacts on the Sim are not seen by Whatsapp.
    The only way I've managed to see the contacts through Whatsapp is by adding the "plus" symbol on each contact number.

    I don't want to do this for 200 contacts.

    What's going on ?

    Welcome to Android Central! Go to Settings>Apps, select WhatsApp, and tap Permissions. Does it have permission to access your Contacts?

    Yes,all permissions are on. Tried all possible contacts refresh methods as well. I have tried to de-activate 360-security, nothing changed.

    Are the contacts only on the SIM? Can you import them to the phone's internal storage?

    It looks like the + is necessary: https://faq.whatsapp.com/en/bb/21016748
