Need a phone that supports WhatsApp. Was using a Samsung galaxy ace but WhatsApp isn’t supported on it because it’s android is old...

Can anyone recommend a cheap phone?

Thank you

I like it can these be unlocked
If you don't mind tinkering - you could root the phone and upgrade the software. Not for the faint of hear though!

XDA developers site should give you everything you need.

Not sure about Welsh Slate on a Phone.

As for rooting, no idea.

It gives you full access to the phone so that you can do your own android updates rather than depending on the manufacturer to issue one. You could root your galaxy ace and potentially save yourself from spending a penny.

Do you know which model number your Ace is? I looked for custom ROMs that will be a higher version of android but seems there's a few different variants of the Ace.

When you boot up it should say the model version (Samsung Galaxy Ace S*****). I had an old Ace and I think I got a Cyanogen ROM for KitKat on it so there will be many years of support left (don't use the Ace, just wanted to practice rooting since it is so easy on the earlier versions of Android).

Hi

The model number is: gt-s5830i.

Could you help me install another rom? I only rooted it initially to delete stock apps lol

Would be great to get this little thing running again. It’s been sitting in the window ever since WhatsApp went.

Thank you

Check XDA with the model number but make sure you are looking for ROMS with GT-S5830i, not GT-S5830 as they are different. This one might work (KitKat), but please check to be certain: forum.xda-developers.com/gal…865
