    I noticed that WiFi shuts off when my phone is locked. Is there anyway to prevent this? I don't have service at all at home so I rely on WhatsApp to get messages. I don't get then with the phone locked because wifi turns off and I have no service.

    Unfortunately not speedfreak228, unless running a streaming radio app to keep Wi-Fi alive would maybe work for you. :dry

    Normally on it's own Wi-Fi goes to sleep after so long to preserve the battery when your phone locks.

    Hate to say it but you could leave your phone plugged in most of the time while at home.

    thanks for the help. I didn't think here was anything you could do. Make MS will make it an option in a future update or better build WhatsApp into the messaging app like Facebook chat
