Hey Peter, if you are able to access the internet from your internet browser app (on the the Verssed Motion E1), then nav to Settings > App > All > Whatsapp > Clear data > confirm... Then go to apps menu and try to launch the Whatsapp app. You will be expected to verify the number again - do that. If all that fails, then uninstall the Whatsapp app and reinstall it afresh. Let us know if you require further help on this.
