Especially if she has discovered that she was connected to the internet after all.  ;D ;D

Probably what happened is... she went away, tried to connect to the internet while away (settings, selecting a different network and password) and somehow clicked on forget/delete network on her home network, hence her phone didnít automatically connect her when she got home.

First thing to try if you cannot connect to your network. > settings > WiFi > check network. Or find network, select the one you are looking for and enter the password.  You will know you are connected if the WiFi icon is on the top of your screen.

If you donít do this often or someone else has set it up for you itís easy to forget  or not know how to check the settings

I've now seen my friend and she tells me while they were on their mini break a family member transferred data from their phone to hers.

The unused data was taken back at the end of their break. For some reason her phone didn't reconnect to the web once she was home, which she hadn't noticed until I emailed her asking why she hadn't read my WhatsApp messages.

All sorted now.

Many thanks to all who commented on my post.

So in spite of the fact she was adamant she wasn't connected to the internet at home to use WhatsApp, she must have been.  ;D

If she didnít know before, she certainly does now  ;D

I now know not to bother with WhatsApp if she isnít at home. Lessons learned on both sides.
