Hi Mohammad! 

My apologies for the inconvenience, however, due to the fact that our numbers are virtual as opposed to traditional, some apps such as WhatsApp do not recognize them as easily. 

We are working on reprimanding that in the near future, however, you are welcome to contact WhatsApp support for further assistance in the meantime :)

Yeap. Not working. I contacted Whatsapp so they'd verify my phone number manually and this is what they answered:

"Sorry, it appears that you are attempting to verify a non valid phone number. Non valid phone numbers are numbers that are not tied to a physical SIM card, such as VoIP, landlines, toll-free, and premium numbers. These numbers are not supported for use with WhatsApp.

Please use a valid number that has an active cellular service and is tied to an active SIM card.

If you believe that the number you were attempting to verify was already a valid number linked to your SIM card, please send us a copy of your phone bill.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. We would be happy to help!"

Hi Kristopher, I'm afraid I didn't get your message. Would you re-send it to brank87 gmail? thanks!

Hi, Manny:

I'm afraid that if your TextNow number is not working with WhatsApp, you'll need to contact the WhatsApp folks for the time being and ask them to add your number manually to your WhatsApp account.

Kevin,

Thanks for the reply. I asked whatsapp support but they refused it saying they cant do that for Voip numbers.

Is there any other solution for this problem? 

I don't want to change my phone number.

Hey Manny,

If Whatsapp cannot with the VoIP numbers I'm afraid there is no other way around the issue. Since we are a VoIP service all of our numbers will be categorized in the same way.

Hi,

Sorry to hear you are having problems verifying.

Double check that you've entered the correct phone number.

Please enter your phone number in the full international format (+Country Code Phone Number).
See this article on how to format your number: https://faq.whatsapp.com/general/21016748
Make sure you have an active SIM card for the number you are trying to verify.

Double check that you have Internet service. If you are traveling abroad and roaming, keep in mind that service providers may have roaming restrictions and roaming can incur extra charges.

Check your SMS credits / payments

Send a test SMS from your phone to your number. When sending the SMS, enter your number in the international format (from step 1)

Reinstall WhatsApp

Delete WhatsApp
Reboot your phone (turn off the phone, take out battery if possible. Wait 30 seconds. Then put back the battery and turn your phone on)
Download a new version of WhatsApp: http://www.whatsapp.com/download/
If you are still unable to verify your account, please wait the designated amount of time to try to request another code and try voice verification. There is no way to expedite this.

We unfortunately can't send your code through email due to security reasons.

If you still don't get your code, please ensure that your device is supported by checking this FAQ page

If you have not done so, please provide the following:

Your phone number in this format: + CountryCode PhoneNumber
Your device model

WhatsApp Support Team

Take a look at our FAQ!

Thank you for the follow-up. 

This seems to be pulled from their FAQ's pages, which are useful, but don't refer to what happens when your number isn't compatible. 

I'm afraid that you most likely would not be able to use your TextNow number with this app.

Hello, I see this is a problem for many.

I have contacted WhatsApp to request they add it manually. But honestly, both WhatsApp and TextNow have to get their stuff together.

TextNow: WhatsApp is one of the biggest texting applications in the planet, if you want to seriously make it in the market you need to figure out a way for this not to be a problem for your customers (I noticed that a year has passed since the first comment, and the answer is the same).

WhatsApp: Voip is the way of the future, sooner or later even traditional companies will end up doing something similar.

Hi Helen! Due to the virtual nature of our numbers, they are not recognized by all other third-party apps/systems. Unfortunately, this isn't anything that we can change on our end.
