I want to use WhatsApp in PC within Android emulator. I am using the official emulator.exe within an Android Virtual Device of Android 2.3.

My PC is behind a proxy so I set the proxy in the setting of the Android emulator. I can access Google with the default browser.

I tried to use WhatsApp but after I had submit my mobile phone number, it said cannot connect.

Please dont't recommend other 3rd party Android emulator to me because I planned to use other app with this emulator.

Can you access other websites via the browser? –  Liam W Dec 18 '12 at 14:46

Not too smart are you? If you could do what you're trying then you'd be able to read anybody's messages just by knowing their phone number. Whatsapp needs a SIM card to work.

Downvoted because you have to complete SMS confirmation, proving you own your phone number. Whatsapp doesn't need a SIM card to run, needs just you to prove your ownership –  djechelon Apr 18 '13 at 11:07
