Think the problem you're having with WhatsApp is just on your phone?

If you think it's just your phone experiencing a separate issue, it might be worth checking for any updates for WhatsApp.

Alternatively, you could uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp again, although this may result in loss of previous messages and sent items. Always back up before.
