Last days people from China report about the problems with WhatsApp. And today we are trying to find a solution how to unblock WhatsApp in China.

Hello all,

I used Whatsapp app without any issue in China, keeping in touch with my relatives and friends on it without any bad behaviors , just simple chat. Since yesterday evening, I noticed I cannot update my status or any settings anymore on it. I was thinking is because of a slow internet connection but then I noticed I cannot even send or receiving any message on it ! It was like a empty tool , same as facebook here. I tried access Whatsapp website, but it say connection was reset … or unable to reach the server, same as facebook page also. I tried reinstall Whatsapp, but didn’t worked anymore , after reinstall , it can’t reach my phone number to receiving the verification message from Whatsapp. I tried use it on other devise, but is the same issue, is death ! I tried reinstall it on other devise, but is same issue, impossible to connecting to receiving the verification message of the phone number .

I asked the internet administrator if this is general issue and he told me he can’t also access whatsapp webpage and sent me a picture screenshot to comfirming. We tried to access it from China Mobile internet , but is the same issue, cannot.

I read that in Brazil Whatsapp was down for 72 hours and I am wonder if this is the same issue in China or it will never ever work again..

Could you use Whatsapp ? More replies will help to see if is general issue. Thanks in advance !”
