does someone know if there is already a WhatsApp Version for Ubuntu Phone? I decided to install Ubuntu on my Android, but i don't want to use my Phone without WhatsApp.

Thanks for every useful answer.

No, there isnt at the moment. The opensource version was abandoned because of complexity with Whatapp's API –  Ubuntuser Oct 30 '13 at 7:58

There is currently (October 30th, 2013) no official Whatsapp client for Ubuntu One.

There were some non-official clients that were either web-based or simple to port but all that I knew have been discontinued. While the Whatsapp protocol looks easy to implement it changes too often, breaking non-official clients until the changes are reverse engineered.

You could try what is proposed here: http://www.whatsappfor.org/software/whatsapp-ubuntu-phone-touch/

Always best to add a short précis of the steps to be taken rather than only rely on a link which might, in time, become broken or lost altogether rendering your otherwise helpful answer useless. –  Graham Jun 16 at 6:20
