How to fix WhatsApp Notifications on WP

Yesterday I had a hard time getting my WhatsApp notifications to work on my Lumia 635 (Windows Phone 8.1). Every single time I dismissed WhatsApp I would get the following warning and whenever I received a message nothing would be displayed.


In order to check for messages I had to open WhatsApp manually and honestly, who wants that? That's why I started searching the web and tried a few different things to solve the problem but without any success.  After a long time of searching and trying I found my solution in a forum and it was so simple.

Because of not having a data plan here in the US I depend on a wifi network in order to receive messages. To get push notifications WhatsApp tried to use my cellular data connection instead of my wifi. I simply had to disable my cellular data and now everything works fine.

How do disable your cellular data?

Just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR POSTING THIS kind stranger.

I was losing my mind and none of the other sites I found mentioned checking the cellular data settings. This fixed it perfectly.
