    Not every app can be used on every Android device. The message can't recognize your phone means that the developer has not provided a version that runs on your hardware. you may need to find a different messaging application, there are many out there and i am sure there is one that will work on your device.

    Do you know how I can pair my Blackberry Curve with my Android Tablet?? So it can pick up my contacts from there?

    by far the easiest way is as follows (if you have gmail already skip that part):

    1. get a gmail account at www.gmail.com
    2. install Google Sync on your Blackberry
    3. sync your contact from your blackberry to your gmail account
    4. sync your contacts from your gmail account to your Android.

    probably not if it says it can't recognize your device. what is it you want to use that app for? perhaps we can recommend another choice

    Here's what I did......

    I downloaded Whatsapp onto the Android............direct from the Whatsapp website. (I saw this happen on the iPad and then there was an option to put your mobile number into the iPad).

    When I went to Accept the terms & conditions to fully install App it says "We can't identify your device. Please turn off the phone, take out the battery, restart it and try again". this stumped me, as it's not a phone.

    I would like to use a messaging service, that uses my contacts that ive inputted which works like Whatsapp........

    No offense, but it's called using common sense. The reason why it works for iPad is because you can insert a microSIM card into it. After all, iPad has a 3G model and so you can obviously go online anytime you want, hence why it makes sense that you can use an app like WhatsAPP as it requires a connection to use it. Most Android tablets don't use 3G and don't support SIM cards (that's why they are tablets, duh). WhatsApp works mainly on phones, so any Android phone should support it as it simply needs to register your number with it.
