RIP Symbian, I owned two Symbian devices and was some of the better options available; right now I'm using a Nokia N8 as backup device after my LG G3 died last week but the time has come.
I really loved symbian..hope someday someone brings an device with modern specs...
It was way ahead of its time...till recently andriod has been catching up in terms of features..
Yep, Whatsapp is stopping support for all Symbian devices (S40, S60) as well as BlackBerry (all including BBOS 6, 7 and 10), Windows Mobile (7.1 and bellow) and very old versions of Android (2.2 and bellow) and iOS (6 and bellow) on the 31 December 2016. We've all been getting the message upon opening Whatsapp. You can visit Whatsapp's website for more information.
I also received same message from WhatsApp too. Am using BlackBerry Passport. As for me I still have option to port WhatsApp APK on my phone. It works perfectly.
UnderwaterMe, 11 Jul 2016Noooooooo.... My backup device is an old but trusty N95. Now I will need to find a new backup ... moreNexus 5 will have WhatsApp support for a very long time, I think at least the next 10 years. Even Nexus 4 has CM13 support (Android 6.0) and WhatsApp also supports older Android versions down to 2.3.4 Gingerbread
Lol the complete comment section of this article is a joke. Nobody really uses Symbian anymore :D
God, 11 Jul 2016oh god. What to do i do. I am not having any android, ios, windows phone. I am a symbiam user. I advice you to buy a new device
Same message is on Windows Phone 7.* phones. Yesterday I saw that message on my Lumia 800.
If you want to stop supporting it that's fine but at least let it run on the street owners on risk not just take it off like that.. What are doing
Noooooooo.... My backup device is an old but trusty N95. Now I will need to find a new backup device.
Maybe that Nexus 5 that I'm trying to sell.
Why? Has other messenger for Symbian?.. No more WhatsApp for all platforms of Symbian? s60, Anna, Belle OS???
Oh no no no no... My poor Nokia n8 will become just a music player n a camera , won't b able to use wtsapp, can't they continue to support thru old version of wtsapp ?.. Wish they cud.. I knw Symbian is gone bt I still love my n8 phone
