Can we use WhatsApp on both SIMs on a Dual SIM phone?


Date: 15 Jan 2015   Posted By: Timmappa Kamat     Group: Computers & Smart Devices    Category: Smartphones   

Most of the newer phones being launched these days are of Dual SIM in nature. As we all know, WhatsApp as an app cannot be installed as (separate) two apps on the same phone. So how can a Dual SIM phone user configure WhatsApp for both the numbers? Apart from using the SIM in two different phones, is there any way to do it?

Yes, it is possible to use WhatsApp on both SIMs on a dual SIM smartphone. What you need to do is to run a separate account of WhatsApp which is different from your original WhatsApp account. You can do this with a modified version of the official WhatsApp. This modified version is known as OGWhatsApp (so named apparently after the name of the person who created it).

To get the OGWhat's App, though, you need to first uninstall the regular WhatsApp. Of course, remember to save all the data of WhatsApp before uninstalling it! For a complete step by step guide refer: http://webtrickz.com/using-both-whatsapp-numbers-on-android-dual-sim/
