    Still stuck at the number verification step, after two whole weeks. Tried evrything the whatsapp FAQ suggested, dod not work. Tried bot the sms and call option, nada! Found this site, and followed its intructions (all 5 steps). Guess what, nothing changed.
    And yes, i do have a strong connection (both on and of a wifi)
    I can recieve and send text messages
    i have internet on my phone.
    Installed the latest version of whatsapp from the website
    turned my phone on and off again, with at least 5 min breaks.

    Basicly, i am tired after being very patient and trying so, so, so many times.
    Even tried conacting whatsapp support, but sadly, only got their bot response reffering to their FAQ.

    Got any tips for me for what i can do to solve this now growing annoying problem?

      I had a similar problem. Maybe your permissions are to restrictive. During install, Whatsapp kept prompting me to click “Next” after I touched “OK” to send me the verification code. I uninstalled and reinstalled whatsapp multiple times, rebooted the phone multiple times with time in between. But instead of sending the code it always went back to the phone number editing screen. There was No error msg on the screen. It just kept going back to editing the phone number but the number was correct. Extremely annoying and time wasting.

      The problem was resolved when I looked at the pulldown system messages. There was a HELPFUL error msg that Whatsapp could not proceed because the Playstore app didn’t have all the proper permissions including access to SMS function. It told me to set all permissions to Yes. when I clicked that msg on the pulldown list, it took me right to the permissions area in setup. I think it was in Settings under System for the playstore app. There were several permissions I had denied previously that after denial had not affected my ability to use Whatsapp previously. After I allowed all permission categories Whatsapp proceeded to send the SMS code and it allowed me to restore the latest backup. Hope this helps someone.
