  1. How can I allow only certain contacts to see my “Last Seen”? I have too many contacts to delete.
    Will your suggestion be applicable to both iPhone & Blackberry?

  2. Hi need to show the display picture for particular circle of people and another circle with other dp is it possible

  3. Reg last seen, as I did all the above wt u said..If it s n wts app caling it show ma last seen to particular person

    1. See you have to select My Contacts option under Privacy->Last seen. And then whether that particular contact is there in your WhatsApp contact list or not. If it is there in the WhatsApp contact list, then remove it, no need to remove from phone-book. And the person will not be able to see your last seen.

  4. Deleting contacts means deleting form phone book.. As I could find option to delete contact from contact list in WhatsApp.

      1. Hi
        Tried to do as you suggested but the issue is if once we remove that person or persons whom we do not want to show our last seen status then we are deleting them from the whatsapp contact and hence the chat also gets deleted at the same time
        This aint silving the problem
