I also just read on the news that Facebook is considering adding advertisements to WhatsApp.
Seems like they're digging their own grave..

maybe if I rename one of the folder inside /Whatsapp/ , let say, My Neighbor Naked Collection PLUS, will I got banned in the future too?

just a folder and there's nothing modified on my whatsapp. nothing. zero. not whining, just wondering and sharing this bulls*** false alarm on my case. to make it worse, they reply the same automated email to me although I asked them to check any log on their end, or anything they got to prove I'm using a modified whatsapp.

13 hours to go. no big deal, except for my work related whatsapp group. they don't care about our priority right?

So they are reading-detecting
/whatsapp/PLUS folder...
Hope someone working on fix reading this...
And yeah thats rediculous that you don't use whatsapp+ still getting banned.

And the point is? We all used a third party app which is against the terms of service. It's like complaining to a car dealership that you can't go skiing with your car.

Reporting from Italy, still on , no ban for now ^_^;
Btw, plenty of users always same chitchat blabla about useless things... wth care about material design , round avatars (ugly for me) ecc.!?!?!? >_<

I switched on whatsapp+ coz if u have amoled phone, u can set all dark themed ecc. and save battery! And if u are a little blind u can customize colors for high contrast ecc.,
Plus a lot of nice feature like see from userlist when contacts are online ecc. (things that was avaible on icq in 90s... that even now skype destroied on awful mobile client... -_-)
If the bigguys of whatsapp can do that in original need to use modded apk , but noo hell, follow the flow of kids liking material design before do something good....blah

I also read that some people who are still using Whatsapp+ got the counter reset until they installed the official Whatsapp. Since then, the counter hasn't started.
Mine is at 20 hours, even if I'm using OGWhatsapp on the banned number.

What design are you using?
