    Going through everyone's posts and personal experience with my L620; looks like things were working fine with initial 2 updates that were released back to back. Whats app was working without any flaw. Battery life had improved by 20-30% as well but subsequent updates (.506 onwards) made things go bad. The same old notification issue and battery drain issue are back. Wondering why the hell did I update

    Still the same issues exist after the third update. After two updates it was working fine with no lag in receiving messages but it's back to the same issues. Can't understand the point of third update.

    Yeah my notifications are broken again too. I have delayed alerts or I'll have to open the app to even get them. What happened to this app? It doesn't serve one of the basic functions anymore.

    Notifications down yet again. This makes whatsapp completely unreliable to use. The most annoying thing about the notification issue is that this has been happening for months with all the different messaging apps, viber, facebook chat, Skype, whatsapp, etc... It doesn't look like it will ever get fixed, this is the kind of **** that puts people of Windows Phone

    Is there any way to change the sound of the notifications? I hate the default one and would like to use my own. I'd also like to make it a sound only (not sound + vibration). I couldn't find a way to do this in either the WhatsApp settings or the phone settings.

    No you can't. In fact you can't change sound and vibration for any single app, therefore whatsapp neither. That's why you couldn't find it of course, it doesn't exist. I also think this is really lame, the OS is not really customizable imo...

    RAM size. I was thinking if the issue is for low memory devices, but now I know it is not the RAM.

    Bingo! This is precisely my observation as well. After two updates, it was working like a charm - no lags, no freeze, no delay in notification, improved battery life etc... But now again back to square one!

    same here. notifications stopped working. Worse than before. I have to open the app to receive the messages.

    Are we sure it is about the app and not MS?

    Yeah, I just noticed this playing around with the general settings: I was going to change my ringtone (no problem, I just plugged in my phone to my PC and dragged and dropped my custom ringtone into the ringtone folder), which was fine, and then I was going to change my text message notification sound to a custom one and then realized that I couldn't. There are pros and cons to the slightly closed system of Windows Phone; I think more pros than cons, overall, but not being able to change notification sounds is silly.

    fun thing is that I've never had problems with whatsapp notifications, even with the old version (before july), until the last update: now, if whatsapp is in background, i receive notifications 15-20 minutes after the message was sent. I wonder what the hell is going on with whatsapp developers.

    (other notifications work fine)

    Yep. Broke for me too. Back to only getting messages when i open the app or very late delay.
