Hi,

As far as I know, it's not available. I think you will receive an error message about this if you install an app for compass.

Exactly it has happened. It shows magnetic sensor not avbl. What is the solution for this. The seller told me COMPASS will work in this mobile.

 

Secondary if I select any contact and press SEND TEXT MESSAGE, only SMS option is coming. Whatsapp is not showing.

Re: E4 dual Compass

Unfortunately, since the phone does not support this you will not be able to use it as a compass. If you have received this information from the seller, I can only suggest that you contact them.

 

I'm not sure how Whatsapp work, but do you mean that when you choose to send a text message inside contacts, the option to complete the action using Whatsapp doesn't appear? Do you end up directly in the preinstalled messaging application? If yes, go to Settings > Apps > The tab "All" > Messaging > Clear defaults and try again.

Re: E4 dual Compass

Nearly rigtht. Actually, I am selecting a dialled number and giving a long press on it. It gives Add to contacts, Edit no before call, send text message, delete call from log.

 

Now when I press Send text message, it should give option of send through whatsapp too.

Re: E4 dual Compass

I think the contacts app uses whatever is set as default messaging app in settings and gives no other options, tried it myself sometime ago. If you have the standard messaging app as default it will use that.
