    With the latest update I seem to have lost the ability to force manual update of contacts, or is it hidden some where?
    When on your favorites screen hit the contextual options (...), the refresh option is there now.

    Can you provide an example of an app that had configurable notification sounds before GDR3?

    Is it just me or the WhatsApp WP8 client is working worse and worse every day? Messages not arriving or not showing notifications. Notifications without sound (just visual); or vice-versa, sound notifications without visual ones. Delays in sending messages, even if you're hooked to a wifi network?

    Just to clarify with you guys, cause I'm quite new to WP. Is this WhatsApp's fault or is it MS with it's push system?

    Cheers.

    Hey, I basically just wanted to ask the same question...on my GF's Lumia 620 WhatsApp messages quite often don't give notifications or any other sign. When she opens the app she sees that there are messages but there are NO signs whatsoever on the tile/lockscreen. Sometimes the service works correctly though. I would estimate a 50:50 hit/miss ratio...that's obviously not very satisfying for an instant messaging service : (

    We already tried reinstalling the app...no success. She has push enabled and everything. And she has Wifi always on option enabled. We made sure everything is set up just as on my L920 (on which WhatsApp works okay...only very very few "outages" like the ones I described above) so basically everything should work smoothly. I really don't know what else to do...any ideas or any other folks who are experiencing the same issues?

    Thanks!

    its been like this for me since gdr2, very frustrating, sometimes it works, sometimes i open whatsapp only to see a new message that didnt get a notification or even an update on the livetile. Basic functions like this not working makes me wonder why i should stay with wp8(not saying its microsofts fault, who knows maybe it is maybe it isnt. i dont give a **** i just want my phone to work).

    From last one month or so my WhatsApp has completely stopped getting notifications. I never get messages in background. Even when not closing the app, going back by pressing windows button. The moment i open app, all messages arrive. Have tried all the option like reset, reinstall and all. Now trying living with it :(

    I was also having same issue before but its now solved after done the following, i am using 720 & 920.

    Chk this in Settings:
    1. Settings -- Application --- Back Ground Task: Whatsapp should not be blocked to run in Back ground App
    2. Data Sense -- Settings: Uncheck Restrict background data when i am near my Limit
    3. If you run battery saver mode then you have to deactivate it: Leave Battery Saver ON, in Advance Settings select Conserve Battery: When Battery is Low.

    Give a Restart or Soft Reset (Vol. Down + Power) might give a solution to your problem.

    Thanks for your reply but I'm afraid this won't solve the problem...

    1. I myself have the background task disabled and WhatsApp works flawless on my phone (except for the very very few cases I wrote above in my previous post, but those are actually not worth mentioning haha). So I guess this one isn't the culprit.
    2. She hasn't set a limit in Data Sense so she can't uncheck the option you mentioned. Also, she doesn't even have a data plan so she exclusively uses WIFI for which Data Sense's limit doesn't apply...
    3. Battery saver mode is disabled so that's not it either...

    Actually not sure if we tried rebooting the phone but I don't think this would solve the problem.

    Thanks again though :)

    That doesn't work for me.
    Tried both, enabling and disabling background task; I don't use data sense, and I also don't use battery saver mode. And of course I've done some proper reboots and soft resets. Everythings is still the same.

    I still think it's whatsapp's issue with push notifications or microsoft's fault with their push notificaction system.

    I don't use Line or WeChat, but, maybe we should check with the users of those Apps, if they have similar issues; then we might get an idea of what's behind our troubles.

    Cheers. And hope we all get a solution, cause really, WP is worth it (at least how I see it).

    May be not.. I feel it has to do with Memory of the Phone or there is app memory restriction...
    I have crashing of apps when there is enough things loaded....

    just try Fotor or some image edit app to create a Collage.. keep adding pictures and then my L620 exits the app :P

    Sucks right? While other platforms versions are working blazing fast and fully functional with all aspects, we WP users need to wait and wait....
