How to get Facebook and WhatsApp for Nokia 8110 4G
Download and install software version 15.00.17.03 to your phone. It is available over-the-air (OTA). Just dive into your Settings -> Device Information -> Software Updates.
It is a very small update, weighing in at roughly 32 MB. All KaiOS system and app updates are small by design. It is an operating system designed primarilly for emerging markets after all.
