Anybody having issues with whatsapp receiving messages on wifi? Seems messaged come in slower on wifi than in data. In addition to sending as well.
Sometimes on wifi, i get the notificatino of new message i open the app, it doesn't show. I have to close out and re-open to get the messages sometimes.
Wondering anybody have same problem.

I use Whatsapp pretty heavily, but not usually on wifi. I have the same problem you do, though, in getting notifications of new messages but them not being there. Exiting the app works as you said. Must be a bug, and a pretty annoying one at that. :/

Is there a decent alternative to whatsapp out there? I tried Kik messenger but for some reason it has really heavy battery usage. I was getting maybe 6 hours from my 710.
There was one other I tried, but the name escapes me - however, the voice message quality was incredibly poor compared to whatsapp.
Same as others above though, whatsapp messages can take an age (sometimes days) to arrive on someone else's phone.

I officially abandoned WhatsApp this week and have been using Hike instead. Most of my coworkers have it, and I'm working hard to make my friends change too :-)
hike - fun, free messaging for life
