Blackberry as we know it,has stopped the production of smartphones.
It was no suprise as this “once tech gaints” struggled to keep-up with most other smartphone out in the market.
But as we all know it WHATSAPP will no longer work for blackberry devices(bb 10), as from 31 December 2016.
Just come to think of it,using a phone without whatsapp, how horrible.
But guess what, there’s a way around this unimaginable scenario And it’s quite simple. All you need are:
Android assistance apk
Whatsapp for android.
.
First step is to download “android assistance apk from here .
Install the app and open it
At the top, click on the “tools” tab
Then click on the “mobile networks” (it should then turn green)
Then you can close the app.
Next step is to download whatsapp for android here
i.e this whatsapp is for core android phones like tecno,infinix,samsung,gionee,itel,htc..e.t.c. You can even get from a friend that uses a core android phone(not blackberry) and make sure you don’t download the whatsapp for BLACKBERRY devices.
Then lunch the Whatsapp and you are good to go….

NOTE: to enable whatsapp to share media files, just follow the procedure below
.
go to settings
locate "privacy"
then "application permission"
look for whatsapp
then click..
you'll see all permissions for whatsapp
enable "share media"
and that should do the trick( i think!!!)
Having problems? Just ask..

Not everyone likes whatsApp. I'm only on Facebook and Bbm, if you can't chat on those platforms, then call me!

If you can't call, then f#ck off! cheesy

It's a general issue. Try and copy one of the pictures from ur phone memory to the SD card and try and send the picture again from the new location. Someone said it works, haven't tried it cos there is no SD Card on d phone atm.
