Your WhatsApp Account Functionality Will be Limited
Once a persistent reminder is shown, the functionality of your WhatsApp account will be limited. Initially, you’ll only lose access to your chat list. You can, however, still answer incoming video or voice calls. You’ll also be able to read and respond to messages or call back a missed voice or video call via notifications. In an FAQ, WhatsApp says the limitations will not apply to everyone at the same time.
A few weeks after your WhatsApp account’s functionality is limited, you will lose the ability to receive incoming calls and messages. At this point, your WhatsApp account will basically be of no use as you won’t be able to send or receive messages.
