WhatsApp date and time wrong message!

Hello everyone,

 

I am new to the "Sony" Xperia range but been a long time user to the "Sony Ericsson" range.

 

I bought my Xperia M from the official Sony Store from Malaysia but however I have a problem.

 

The phone came with WhatsApp but it says the date and time is incorrect!

 

WhatsApp

 

And yes I did all the maintenance stuff. I updated my phone to Android 4.1.2 Build version 15.1.C.1.17 and I updated the app (It updated the moment I connected it to WiFi).

 

I currently haven't got a SIM into this thing so do I need to put in the SIM card first before it will work or is there another problem?

 

Please help.

 

Thanks!

Try this 

 

Settings > Date & ime > try either Automatic date & time and automatic time zone
