Ok lets start with just the whats app issue...

Are you able to access the Microsoft Store, and find Whats App?

If so when you click to download it, is this when you get an error, if so what exactly does the error say?

click on APPS Corner - WhatsApp not there. Go into Microsoft Edge, tap in WhatsApp get Official Site. Tap download, enter email address, enter new password,, message; 'your email or password ***** ***** You can keep trying or reset your password'

VIDEO DID NOT HELP AS MY NEW PASSWORD, LIKE MY OLD PASSWORD ***** ***** BEING RECOGNISED.
Expert:  JamesI replied 10 months ago.

At what point are you being asked for a password *****?

There is no need to go to the whatsapp website.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Where do I go then?
Expert:  JamesI replied 10 months ago.

As per the video, you are looking for a tile on the phone's menu called 'Store'

The video shows it as a blue tile with a box\present icon, but it can be any colour, I think the default is Orange.

Please let me know how you get on

ok was trying the APPS store which requested a Microsoft password. Now watching screen which shows 'working ' and dots going across screen.
Expert:  JamesI replied 10 months ago.

Ok, let me know how you get on.

It should be downloading \ install the software, which can take 5 minutes depending on the speed of your internet connection.

If this works I'll be delighted but why is my Microsoft password ***** being recognised, even though I have a text to say changes have been made.
Expert:  JamesI replied 10 months ago.

There is multiple Microsoft 'portals' it may just be you havent registered properly, have a look at the Microsoft help page here.

They suggest users who have recently setup their MS account may still have to verify their e-mail address, check your BT account for an e-mail, as you may have to click on a link inside the e-mail to verify your account.

The other comments relate to the length of the password (needs to be less than 16 characters).

Please let me know how you get on.
