In one of my recent posts, I shared the list of phones compatible with Whatsapp and since then, some of this blog reader has been demanding for means to install Whatsapp on their unsupported Nokia phones.
Nokia phones like Asha 200, Asha 205, c1, c2, 2700, 3110, x2’s-1-2-5 and etc. are not compatible with Whatsapp. The two sim variants are not always compatible with Whatsapp. If you go to Whatsapp website and you are welcome with “Sorry, your device is not supported at the moment. Make sure you are using a web browser on your phone to view this page”, that simply means your mobile phone is not supported.
To use Whatsapp on your unsupported Nokia phones, you have to follow any of the methods I dropped below.
1st Method: Steps to Download Whatsapp on your Unsupported Nokia Phones
- Get a phone that is compatible with Whatsapp
- Insert your memory card and sim card inside the phone that accepts Whatsapp
- Download Whatsapp with the phone that accepts Whatsapp with Your sim and memory card inside the Phone
- Move the Whatsapp to your memory card after doing that, remove the memory card and sim and insert them back into your phone then check your memory card and locate the Whatsapp and open it… You are Good 2go.
2nd Method: Steps to Download Whatsapp on your Unsupported Nokia Phones
Before we start the 2nd method, you must have at least 3mb free memory space on your phone/memory card. At least 5mb of data and N10 must be on your phone to cater for the downloading of the application, updating it and text message to confirm your phone number during installation. Once you have avail your self with these minimum requirements, you can now proceed to the procedures listed below.
- First and foremost, you need to download these two files: Whatsapp.jar and Whatsapp.jad
- After downloading the two files on your phone, you will only see the Whatsapp.jar. Don’t open this file
- Click on option, scroll down and select Update Version
- After a successful update, open the application and supply your details in the required column and then click continue.
If you follow any of the methods outlined above, by now WhatsApp should be running on your Asha 200, Asha 205 and other unsupported Nokia phones.

@Fiyin, do you have any Whatsapp on it before?
i just download it, and i guess in the process of trying to upgrade it, i tried opening it, so after upgrading it, and i tried opening it, it showed my version 2.4.22 already open. and i have deleted it from my memory card and did the step all over again but it is still the same thing. Or do i have to format my memory card?
@Fiyin, you may have to format your phone.

@Fiyin, formatting your phone seems to be the only solution.

can any of these tricks work on samsung champ or are they only for nokia phones?
@Guevara, you can try it on your Samsung as-long as it supports Java.
It was pre-installed on phone memory, and not external memory card. It can neither be copy nor move from phone memory to memory card. Have also restore factory settings hoping that it will wipe away the whatsapp, but all effort prove abortive. Your help is highly needed bro.
@Muyiwa, you need to completely wipe your phone. Go to any phone engineer closer to you to flash the phone.
My problem is a little differ from others. Mine was that am having whatsapp on my phone b4 (206 dual sim). But the files just curupt all of a sudden. I want to delete the file and redownload again, but the delete option wasnt there. Have downloaded the jad file on this tutoria, and it ask 2 replace. I replace thinking it will overite the curupted file, but it stil show ¡ And if i want to open it, it will display delete file, nd if i delete, it will not be deleted. Plc help me out, what can i do to it.
@Muyiwa, format your phone memory card.
Is there anyway to keep my data on when I hide the app? I’m using X2-02.
@Wilbur, I don’t think there is any way to do that.

@IT87, What’s your phone model?

IT87, Whatsapp works on Asha 200 dual sim without any error. Try to delete the already installed Whatsapp and restart the process.
Well,my problem is:When i hide the application,my internet connection goes off,and i cant receive nothing.Is there any method to switch my data connection on or off?Because in my case my internet connection only works when is used by app,like WhatsApp or Mail or Browser.
@IT87, that don’t happen to phones i installed Whatsapp on.
Pls Olusegun which of the methods is easier to do on ASHA 205?
Ejila Springs Ochowoche, 1st and 2nd method are both great and working. Go for the one that is easier for you.
