WhatsApp is presently the most popular phone messenger service with the biggest number of active users. Every day a huge number of new members are joining this platform.

In this tutorial you will see how to enable all contacts including the Hidden Contacts.

It may happen that you have not saved the number in your contact list. So, check if the number is saved in your contact list. If not, then add the number in your contact with the International ISD code and then look out for the contact in your WhatsApp contact list.
