    Now that certain apps have walked away like Whatsapp, how do you guys install it again?

    I had to do a handset replacement and now I don't have Whatsapp even after restoring my backup. Is there any direct link etc that can be used?

    I don't think there is a way currently. As all the "backup" feature does is queue up downloads from the Store...sorry bud!

    :(

    I have 8 such apps that can't be downloaded now because they were there when I installed and now gone from Marketplace!

    I'm in the same predicament. This is where I really miss Android (especially sideloading an app)...

    I need my Whatsapp!!!

    Yeah sideloading worked a charm with WP7.x!

    I have about 20 freaking friends who have gone mental because they can't send me whatsapp messages. I know they need to REALLY get a life and just drop me a text or email if they really want me. But then I do understand what they mean!

    Absence of WA is holding me back on my purchase of a WP8 device. In my country, hardly anybody uses text. Also, I use a prepaid that charges per text.

    Same here. I'm going to even wait for blackberry 10 and give it a chance.

    If you are a student (or know one), you can install Whatsapp via https://www.dreamspark.com/ I haven't tried it, but I read about some people doing it without a problem. Might be a solution for those who absolutely need it.
