    No, it's not the way it's supposed to work. In whatsapp settings, did you allow push notification ?

    Do you have it pinned to your homescreen? That way the Live Tile can show you on a little number how many unread messages you have. If you don't have it pinned, there will only be a notification for a few seconds on top of your screen and if you're not there to read it, then you won't know you got it.

    I still manage to miss a few messages from time to time, because sometimes messages won't arrive until I open up the app.

    i got it, i was trying to use with wi-fi only, but it seems that the push notifications needs data connection from the carrier, so when i turned the 3G on, it started to work!!

    Thanks everyone!!

    WinUser, I get the same thing, kinda.

    Sometimes the notification pops up and the number of the live tile is displayed but when you go into the app you don't see the message.

    It seems to (sometimes) take a bit of time for the message to appear. Generally, while in the app, it will pop up within about 10 seconds or so, it might be something to do with the data connection (which is odd since the notification got through).

    Not sure why it does it, but it's annoying.

    On a side note, Whatsapp and Kik seems to drink the battery if left running in the background. Is that anyone elses experience?

    i haven't noticed any unusual battery drain when running WhatsApp in the background, and I've been using it since I got my device last week. I use WhatsApp frequently, probably more than any other app, since my chats are very active all day.

    I bought a Nokia LUMIA 710 phone 2 days back. I am using a Vodafone India connection and have got 3G enabled.
    I installed whatsapp messenger using my data plan and now, whatsapp is not working on my phone.
    Has anybody else faced the same issue for whatsapp on your windows phone?
