Installing WhatsApps onto your Nokia Lumia 510, 520, 535 or 630 can be a very simple process. There are two different ways to get the app onto this phone. This can include downloading from the WhatsApp website.
The most common and simplest method of installation would be from the Windows App Store. The Nokia Lumia is a powerful phone that should run WhatsApp without a problem.
When downloading from the Windows Phone Store, you need to click on the Marketplace icon on your home screen. Click on the magnifying glass to bring up the search tab. Next type in WhatsApp to search the app. After you find WhatsApp, click on it to start the install process.
This should bring you to the WhatsApp setup screen. Just following the onscreen prompts and your profile should be ready before long. Once your profile is set up your mobile phone number should be associated with your WhatsApp profile. The Nokia OS on the Lumina phones can be a bit slow so be patient.
The second method of installation is by directly downloading from WhatsApp website. Simply go to www.whatsapp.com and click on the download button. Once there select windows phone. This should bring you to the Windows App store for the download. This method will save you time in searching for WhatsApp in the Windows App Store. You may have to log into your Windows App store to continue with the download.
If the installation fails or you get an error code 80070490, then WhatsApp may not be compatible with your phone. Another reason for a failed installation would be that you are out of available space. If this is the case, just simply uninstall WhatsApp and other unused apps to free up some space. Once that is done, you can now attempt to install WhatsApp again, and it should go through without a problem. If you are still having problems downloading WhatsApp, check your Internet connection. Your data plan or WiFi connection may not be fast enough to facilitate the download.
Recently, several bugs were found in the WhatsApp software prompting developers to remove the program from the Microsoft App Store. This happened around the middle of May of 2014. The issues were affecting mainly Windows 8.1 phones. This issue has since been resolved and most if not all Nokia Lumia 510, 520, 535 and 630 phones are now working with WhatsApp. If you are having any kind of issues when downloading, installing or running WhatsApp, the first thing that you must do is turn your phone off and back on. Then, if that does not work, try resetting your wireless connection or be sure that your data plan is sufficient for downloading.
