One of the most amazing things about WhtasApp is that it takes communication to another level without the expensive fees. You can text, call and send files without the worries of hidden costs, SMS cost, local and international charges and the like. As long you’re connected online. What is even better is that it works on all devices, including those running on Java.

Yes, WhatsApp is available for download for all Java phones. You just need to be a little more patient in installing it, since it’s not as quick as easy as when doing it on an Android device. This is because the messaging app is mainly designed for Android operating systems.



So if you own a Samsung, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Blackberry and other Java-enabled mobile phones download and installation of WhatsApp will be different.

How to download and install WhatsApp on Java phones

  1. Open a browser on your PC, not on your mobile phone, then download WhatsApp_Messenger.jar and WhatsApp_Messenger.jad. This way, you won’t get the unsupported file error.
  2. Transfer both files to your mobile phone via USB cable, Bluetooth or some other convenient methods, and place them in the same folder.
  3. Open WhatsApp and start using it.

This process is basically the same for most Java phones, but some models may involve extra steps. Downloading WhatsApp for Nokia Asha 200 and 201, for example, would involve copying the jar and jad files to your phone’s memory card first, and then moving them to the Apps or Games folder.

You’ll then need to use the Options and Update Version buttons to start the installation process. Wait for the “Open File Now, File Downloaded To My Apps” prompt to launch WhatsApp.

Different Java phones may or may not require added steps. Start with the jar and jad files and go from there. You’ll need to follow the same process when installing WhatsApp for older Samsung phones.
