The phone with the app needs to be connected to the internet (could be on WiFi) and have the app running IME. So if the blackberry won't have the app open...-1 that's only if there is a connection, so the blackberry will need to have the app running...
Thanks.  Just the information I need.   :)

I can't tell if ur being sarcastic because I'm letting u down . but I will share my experience. I have an android on wifi, and the app needs to be connected for whatsappweb to work. I have an app called greenify, which forcibly hibernates apps after a couple minutes inactivity, and many times I will lose connection on whatsapp web, because the app hibernated

I added a smiley so you know I'm grateful not sarcastic.  It tells me I don't want to get my father an LG Rumor.  My only thought now is to upgrade him to a real smart phone, but that would cost an extra $10/ month and I don't think he needs any of the smart phone feature - except larger buttons.


So, new question:  Any feature phones with larger buttons? That can have Whatsapp?

Isn't the latest Android flip-phone a good option for you?

I'm on Sprint.  But I should think about springing my father off into a prepaid plan if it fits his needs better.

It will definitely be easier to find a phone with prepaid.
