My contacts are not appearing in WhatsApp. I have tried:

  • setting my contacts as visible or viewable - no such setting appears to exist;
  • showing all contacts in WhatsApp; again, no such setting appears to exist;
  • switching off my phone and re-inserting the SIM; nothing changed;
  • allowing WhatsApp to read contacts in security > permission settings; no such setting exists;
  • granting permissions in Application manager >WhatsApp; WhatsApp is allowed to read contacts, but no setting to allow all permissions exists.

If anyone could suggest a setting I could change that actually exists, I would greatly appreciate it.

Why don't you refresh your WhatsApp contact manually. By taping on the contact list and scrolling up the screen to refresh it. Also make sure your app is up to date.

Thanks for the replies. I have the latest version. Unfortunately updating the contact list didn't work.

Hi,

I too faced the same problem, but i did the following steps which helped me resolve the issue.

To show all of your contacts, go to Contacts > Menu > Settings. Then, uncheck and re-check the box next to Show all contacts

Next, go to Contacts > Menu > Refresh

Your friend should now appear in your WhatsApp contact list.

Hope it helps!!

Cheers
