This solution did not help us, everything was already ON. But... We discovered that if you set your own profile photo again (preferably a new one, just to be sure), this seems to fix it. Your profile photo will be visible again for your contacts. But the downside: all your contacts will need to do the same :-(
after upgraded ios6 i got problem with whatapp. "last seen" function is not working .. it's doest show last seen who enter the chat . is anyone have the same problem .. i even restore and reinstall to my ph but it's not work .. if someone know how to fix it, plz tell me how to do .. thanks
I have done this, however whatsapp doesnt appear on the photos bit of privacy settings! I've also reinstalled the app and restarted my phone and it still comes up when trying to put phone number in ...could not connect to whatsapp service please try again later.
Even though i have full signal and wifi? Im disappointed, any help?
I created a link for us to voice our feedback to Whatsapp. I have contacted the company on updating to Whatsapp to iPhone 5 version to for them to improve product support, but have not gotten any responses.
Hopefully they will hear us!
Turn privacy>Contacts>Whatsapp OFF.
Kill Whatsapp from Multitasking.
Force restart your iPhone (Hold Power and Home button until Apple logo appears. Ignore "Slide to power off".
Now there are 2 options to continue.
1. Open the Whats app before you go to Privacy settings
2. Go to privacy settings before you open the Whatsapp
I followed exactly every step as u suggested. Had tried both options but neither works. I tried further by :
1) deleted whatsapp
2) made sure privacy>contact>"no whatsapp"
3) reset network
4) rebooted iphone
5) reinstall whatsapp
Privacy>contact>"whatsapp icon appears"
Previously using whatsapp in ios 5.1.1 - no problem because no privacy settings.
Good news. Finally i found the solution.
Privacy>photos was inaccessible by whatsapp because it was the access was accidentally restricted. I wasn't aware why the restricted was turn on. So i went to:
1) settings>general>restriction>privcy(photo)>change from "Don't Allow Changes" to "Allow Changes"
2) settings>privacy>photos>whatsapp is now accessible
It's really weird that it was "Don't Allow Changes" being activated as i remember that i never touch anything under "Restriction" section. Thanks for your kindness in helping me.
