    Don't know what happened to yours but when I used WDRT to reset my DS L950XL and reinstalled WA, over 20,000 msgs came right back. Was so very shocked because normally all it does from backup is restore my chat groups and the last 1/2 msgs within those chats.
    Interesting, I've wiped my phones quite a few times over the last year or so and have never had conversations come back in WhatsApp.

    It's not working properly in other ways as well, I just opened WhatsApp and two messages suddenly came through that had been sent some time ago. How does one get the beta version?

    Turning off backup makes no difference either, still the long delay before the app opens. L950.

    WhatsApp Beta updated to 2.16.244 and the app seems snappy again on my 950. Install the beta or wait a bit, I'm sure they will push out soon.
    Hello, the beta version also shows 'resuming' to me. Lumia 730. I am on beta for time being, as it will the first to get updated to solve the issue. But I still don't get why some phones are having issues and some are not.

    Use what the developer gifted us. Don't just whine that there is a fault, here is a fault for simple things. The WhatsApp is one of the few devs that continuously support All the operating systems similarly. What is wrong if there is resume screen here and there. It is fault of OS may be. I rolled back to FULLY FINISHED WINDOWS PHONE 8.1 DENIM were I don't see this issues.
    Yes, we ARE USING what the developer gifted us. This is not whining, this is bug reporting.

    See, I am a developer myself. Have one app in the store, Strawberry Weather. When people e-mail me, or put a review on the store saying something is not working and there is a bug, I don't think that Windows users are whining about it. Instead, I squash the bug. In fact, I encourage people to bug report me more, as it helps in making the app better and better. And in return, the people change the review to 5 star mostly after fixing bugs. So, when people contact the devs, it gives them the feeling that their app is being used and loved on the daily basis. They try to make it even better.

    And switching back to 8.1 is not an option. We can't use updated Office apps, Outlook apps on 8.1. Also, I am a UWP developer, so 8.1 is no-go.

    What I would suggest is, if you are facing the issue, please let WhatsApp know about it in a polite way. Also, the previous version was a lot faster without any 'resuming' screen. So, it's obvious for people to expect the same kind of behavior continued.

    It backs up the chats very well, but sent media doesn't get restored within the app. So after reinstalling, when I click on an message containing an image, sent by me, it says, 'media files doesn't exist'. It is very annoying.

    I am on beta for time being. Beta updated today to let you mention a specific person in a group with @ prefix. It hasn't solved the 'resuming' issue yet. But I am reinstalling it to see if it makes any difference.

    And please let us know if the official version has solved the 'resuming' issue. Try to uninstall, reboot, reinstall. I am doing this with the beta version right now.

    WhatsApp beta v2.16.262

    * Removed all contacts pane, it now has chats, calls and favorites only
    * Added video calling

    The 'resuming...' bug is still present, but it's good to see new features added.

    Nope, no way.. Almost thinking of switching to Android. All the social apps are painfully slow. Namely, Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp. Multitasking with these is frustrating and my phone usage has been reduced to calls and internet only, for which Edge sucks. I so much envy Android users for how fast those are with everything.

    It's not a bug. WhatsApp is a Windows Phone 8.1 app and not a Windows 10 Mobile app. Therefore, whilst it works fine with Windows 10 Mobile it will always be "resuming". Hardware does seem to make a difference however, I always get "resuming" but it's largely unnoticeable on my L950. Lesser hardware like my old 650 suffered more heavily.

    It resumed instantly previously. I started this thread the day I started facing this problem. It was better before. I have given feedback many times but no solution.

    Same here. I get the sense that it's gotten a bit better (like 2 seconds instead of 3 seconds..) but nothing like the instant return of old. WP10, the only platform where app updates make things worse.*

    * except Tapatalk, where all updates keep making the app more useless on any OS :D

    Also, it's very very slow if you are constantly switching chats, that is talking with more than 1 person at a time. I don't do this often, but sometimes, I have 2-3 important people online, and have to constantly go back and forth in their chats. App behaves horribly slow while doing this.

    Update: Yesterday's WhatsApp Beta update seems to have made the resume faster. Not as fast as before iirc, but better. Say a 5 second launch, and a 1-2 second resume. So there's some hope.

    Edit... Oh, I claimed two seconds earlier as well. :( Well, it feels faster anyway, this one I can live with.

    I have been experiencing this on my 735 since I installed Whatsapp a few months ago. My phone has been through a restore as well in that time and it does not fix it.

    It is SO annoying and pretty bad. I sent feedback to them as well as bad review in the store so hopefully it gets some quick attention. Basically anytime you I use Whatsapp and then leave the app and then come back to it, there is a good 5-7 second delay where it just says "Resuming". The worst is when if I was using Whatapp and phone display timeouts while it was the focus app, when I go to use my phone again there is a big delay like 7-10 seconds of blank black screen. I am forced to just force close the app just to save the time to use the phone. Then when I go back to trying to open Whatsapp again many times it also just crashes on startup and have to click the icon again.

    I have been using Whatsapp more as more of my circle have gotten it, so this is getting tiresome for me. Between BBM being removed from the store for good, now Whatsapp almost unusable and Gasbuddy stopped working reliably, I have sadly seriously thought of moving on from WinM10.
