This is sad because only 4 of my 98 contacts are using Telegram. But fortunately 4 of those are people which i chat most so it isn't bothering me. They didn't know about Telegram until i told them about it and they also think that Telegram is looking better than Whatsapp.

Also what is funny... One of my friend was using Whatsapp+ almoste 4 months ago until she changed to normal Whatsapp. Now she has used normal Whatsapp from Play Store 4 months and still she got banned. And what's the reason? This:

I started using Telegram too, even if there are few people using it.

However, I'm using a modified Whatsapp with material design (it's not Whatsapp Plus) and I'm not banned. On other account I'm using the (defunct) OGWhatsapp which wasn't banned either.

But...on a third number I tested Whatsapp Plus I am banned.


Don't you guys feels like "Hey! What are we paying for ?". If we pay for a hosting and goes down, shouldn't they just pay us ? We paid to have a service which they stopped working for us.

Watchout mate, read this: http://www.androidpolice.com/2015/01...ficial-client/
I want to highlight to you one thing from there:

"Bans are occurring on at least one other 3rd-party WhatsApp client, WhatsAppMD, so it can likely be assumed that any usage of a 3rd-party WhatsApp client at the moment may get you temporarily banned, at least until workarounds are developed. According to the developer of WhatsAppMD, the fix may be as simple as changing the app signature to match the official app's. If that solution does work, you'll likely see it implemented shortly."

Just down vote them to hell, i'd be so happy to see that stupid app just fade away once and for all. I knew the moment facebook laid hands on it that i no longer want to be a part of it. All your friends being on it, however, is really screwed up.

Best thing is that they want to involve ads im whatsapp ( they are going to test it with favebook messenger first )

Thanks mate! The whatsapp I mainly use is the official whatsapp, but only with the design modified. I'm wondering, are they checking for the signature or only for hardly modified version. Mine have no features, but only new design.

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.

Still if developers find a fix and Whatsapp find way to block that fix too i think not many developers want to play that cat & mouse game. So i think that Whatsapp is gonna win this game, unfortunately.

I think what he is trying to say is that if he's deleting his whatsapp + will he be able to see his messages in the original whatsapp version.
My answer: Yes, whatsapp+ and whatsapp are using the same mechanism to encrypt and save your messages in a database on your sdcard so you can easily restore them when setting up whatsapp.

I'm pretty sure they will win this game, but not the war. They will lose users. This is a great reason to users to leave the overrated Whatsapp. I always wanted to stop using it, but I couldn't due to friends.
