Nothing worked, gmail doesn't receive notifications, whatsapp receive notifications for a short period of time and then stops receiving until I manually open it. Another thing, whatsapp doesn't start automatically when I turn on the phone.

I had a Moto E (1st gen.) and when i enabled it, i couldn't receive any Whatsapp notifications... btw, this BLU Advance 4.0 L2 is a great phone for the price, the only downside is the RAM, i don't take any photos anyway :P

I have this phone too and i don't have any problems with whatsapp, i was having problem with Google Apps but it's fixed... really don't know what are you guys doing.
I think there is no solution yet.
I gave up ! I can't fix it by myself.
BLU should pay more attention to this problem.
One good alternative is the Alcatel Pixi 4 4"
It works very fine and has 1 Mb ram.
i just bought this phone for my beautiful daughter, and now I am worried. She uses whats app
I bought this phone and I'm having the same problems as you.. Gmail and Whatsapp are not receiving messages automatically. I have to manually open and check to receive the messages which makes the phone useless for me. I already wrote to Blu service explaining the problem but no answer from them, that´s really disappointing.
I tried EVERY solution I found to similar problems but nothing worked.
If I find a solution I will post it here, please do the same. But I think that there is no solution from the user side, we need a new custom build update probably.
I have a blu advance 4.0 L2 My friend bring it for me overseas
I can't get WhatsApp to work and something's it restart my it self when one thing is working the other is not please is there someone who know how to solve it
I have thus phone.
It is good for the price, but, I just can not get gmail and WhatsApp working on this phone.
Even after the firmware update.
My version is BLU_A303L_V12_GENERIC 16-05-2016 14:02

This is perhaps the cheapest unlocked phone running marshmallow 6.0. The phone gets a OTA update and fixes the google play problem some people are having. Most affordable phone to try out android 6.0.

Like it but it has problems.

It has a problem with updating Google Play Services, so Google Maps, Google Keep, Pushbullet and who knows what other Google Play apps it won't play with . I was on the phone with Google tech support and we spent a half hour trying to get past it. Hard resets don't work. I get the dreaded error 505, won't load. Google Play Services version on this phone is from 2015 and it's old, while trying to work with Android 6. We need an OTA patch to let it update Google Play Services and this phone is perfect as a sub $100 Android phone that works globally and locally on multiple GSM carriers. I ordered a new one to see if it just my phone. Will update when I have more. .
error 505, fix it blu please
