    As the title says. I am receiving notifications when somebody messages me, but when i open whatsapp the messages are not getting downloaded, nor can i send messages when on 2G.

    However, when i switch to 3G (can't always be on 3G coz coverage is really bad) or to wifi, it starts working normally.

    Any suggestions??

    Hmm, I don't think this has anything to do with data speeds. WhatsApp worked fine on my Lumia 800 with T-Mobile. I'd re-install the app.

    Have already uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times. Still doesnt work.

    I think i'll drop a mail to the whatsapp team directly. hopefully they might have a solution for this

    It also takes several seconds for the new messages to appear/download once you enter the app. Not sure how long you're waiting, but its not nearly as instant as say a text message.

    That's odd bro, I don't know what to tell you. Like I said, I used WhatsApp without many hiccups on Edge speeds (T-Mobile) on my Lumia 800.

    Hi Rohith... I am facing the exact problem as described by you here.. Just wanted to check whether your problem is solved. I have written to the whatsapp team and they trying to work it out.

    Adding to the above maybe WhatsApp isn't detecting the connection properly. Try to switch off and on data again.
    Go to a contact and check if you're able to see their last known time.
