Any tips on how to delete a specific contacts chat history which every time I try it goes wait a moment and then freezes and says error.
 Best bet to erase all the whatsapp messages or re download the app and un-install?
How about holding down on that contact then pressing delete on the top of the screen

I had a similar question a while ago, and got some suggestions to get a refurbished phone on ebay. I actually opted for a Prime exclusive phone on Amazon for about $49.

CURRENTLY WhatsApp works on Nokia 208 (and some other Nokia discontinued phones, which aren't smartphones), but they have previously announced that support for that platform will be discontinued, though it has been extended at least once. However, if you want to get WhatsApp working on a desktop, as I did, your only option is a smartphone (though it doesn't have to be activated, could use WiFi only).
