I received a notification on my android that my current whatsapp version has got three days left for it to expire and it needs to be upgraded. I then clicked where it is said “Upgrade now” and it failed to so. First time I noticed that the problem was that my Data Background was off and on the second time I was on but I still failed to upgrade. Each time my whatsapp expired I had to uninstall my older version and would start downloading and install newer versions.

What could be the problem? Is there any other way I can do it cheaper or easier?

log into Playstore.... search for whatsapp.... if there is an update, there will be an update button, if there's no update the button will be labeled "installed"

Since you got the message inside the application and it gives you a deadline, you are probably nearing the end of your trial period.

"For all phone types, WhatsApp is free to download and try for the first year. After, you have the option of extending your subscription for $0.99 USD per year."  [see http://www.whatsapp.com/faq/general/23014681]

You now have to pay the 1USD to continue use. Some say if you Uninstall the app and ReInstall it, you get another 1year trial period.

You can also download the latest whatsapp apk (file for Android) from http://www.whatsapp.com/android/current/WhatsApp.apk and use it to upgrade.
