However, the truth is that the support and updates for these devices would stop by the end of 2016. According to the quoted blog post, WhatsApp will stop supporting the devices running these selected operating systems.




As we look ahead to our next seven years, we want to focus our efforts on the mobile platforms the vast majority of people use. So, by the end of 2016, we will be ending support for WhatsApp Messenger on the following mobile platforms:
BlackBerry, including BlackBerry 10
Nokia S40
Nokia Symbian S60
Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
Windows Phone 7.1



So do not panic, keep updating and using your WhatsApp till the end of 2016.

What to do when WhatsApp is no longer available for these devices;


1. For Blackberry Devices: 
(a) The trendy and more secure Blackberry Messenger is still waxing strong and available across even more devices. Download from the respective stores and keep chatting

(b) If you still want the WhatsApp experience, the next best thing is the Telegram Messenger App with its fast growing user base with even better features than WhatsApp. Get Telegram free for all devices from the site or the respective stores

2. For Nokia S40 devices:
Well, the best alternative with a large user base is the much improved 2go Messenger. Get it free from 2go.im or the respective stores

Otherwise, get a droid device. However if you are a die-hard Nokia fan, then you should consider going for the Nokia X, Nokia X2, Nokia XL devices which have an optimized Android OS running, therefore WhatsApp will still be available for these devices.
