- At first I went to wrong App --> WeeChat. Not the same as WeChat. The first would work fine with FP. The 2nd one may have several ways to work around that issue. Instead of mobile numbers they also accept Facebook ID, eMail, WeChat ID, and maybe more. Once up and working, then try and "add" a mobile number to the mix and see if it takes it then. You may need to see if they maintain a "whitelist" of good working numbers that you can have your FP number added to so WeChat stops refusing to use the number but can access as normal.
Whatsapp requires FP numbers to be added to their whitelist for things to work for that app. May be the same reasons for WeChat.
