I HAVE TRIED ALL THE METHODS ABOVE WITH NO LUCK
#%%%%what i did to fix this was to import all contacts from sim to phone memory, close the whatsapp or minimise the open again for it to load the contacts automatically. this is how the "setting up whatsapp. please wait windows phone" was finally fixed $%$%$

I confirm the fix.
Do the usual steps, and when it's stuck on the screen, switch to the contact screen, add a new contact with a phone number, and then go back to the whatsapp app.
None of the origin fixes worked for me.
