    I'm only connected to WhatsApp messenger when I launch the application. So I don't get any messages from friends until I launch it and get connected. How do I 'remain' connected to it when I'm not on the app - when the phone is in sleep mode etc...

    I tried to look for settings in iphone settings and in WhatsApp but didn't find any.

    Thanks

    whatsapp is multi-tasking enabled. so it will always be connected and receive messages as they come in...

    As long as you are on the 3GS or the iPhone4 multitasking for it should work.
    Make sure you go to settings>notifications>whatsapp and turn ON the notification types you want it to do!

    I'm on the 3G not 3GS - is that why WhatsApp isn't notifying me?


    I just installed Push Doctor and restarted the phone. Now the 'Notiications' tab in Settings has disappeared.

    Help pl.

    I do not have consistent problems receiving my notifications, although it does happen sometimes. Not enough to narrrow it down to a particular situation. I used to always receive them but over the past few weeks, not so much. Maybe with the last update? Sorry I can't help you. I'm on 4.1
