Solution 2 For All Above Problems

Though this is the most dangerous solution, but it works! So, if you are unable to complete Whatsapp initialization process or Showing error like Whatsapp unable to connect to the internet. Please try again later or Whatsapp not able to verify phone number, then you must follow the below solution 2.

1. Make sure your phone is charged upto 70 – 80% battery.

2. Take a complete backup for your phone data and application too.

3. Transfer all the images, music, videos and other items to external SD card, if there.

4. Now, you have to “RESET” your device.

5. After turning on; first uninstall the Whatsapp, if it comes pre-installed on your device.

6. Go and download “Whatsapp” application from the Google Play Store or from Official Whatsapp website.

7. Start the initialization process as usual and you will get your whatsapp application back on your device.

Generally, the Solution 2 works for new devices that contain “Whatsapp” application as pre-installed. Now also, you are unable to complete Whatsapp initialization process or Showing error like Whatsapp unable to connect to the internet.

      even me!…
      But now i can. I tried changing the apn settings
      go to
      settings>wireless & networks>more…>mobile networks>access point names(APN)
      depending on your network provider you should have multiple APN
      try verifying by selecting each one of them.One of them will definitely work.

  • Alice

    If whatsapp doesn’t connect to the internet even if the internet appears to be working on your phone, your APN (Access Point Network) Settings may not be configured for Whatsapp. Go to your APN settings under Manage Networks option in your settings menu, and configure it to the option that reads ‘Internet’.
