There is little doubt that WhatsApp is the global leader of instant messaging services.
The messenger is very useful when it comes to sending messages, be it texts, videos, images or voice clips. Users can share their locations, contacts and even make free voice calls to other users regardless of their global location. In a bid to ensure that no one is locked out of the platform, the developers of the app have ensured that there are versions compatible with almost every mobile phone available today. Users of Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Nokia, and BlackBerry can install this application on their devices without any problems.
On the flipside, WhatsApp can only be installed on devices that have a SIM card. The question that comes to the surface here is this: what happens to those who want to use WhatsApp on a device with a different SIM card without changing their number?
Well, there is a way out. It is still possible to retain the same WhatsApp number on a device that is using a different SIM card? However, you must first setup the app using the initial SIM card.
When you download and install WhatsApp on your phone, it will ask you for a phone number. This is where the app will send the verification code required to activate your account. Once this verification code is sent to the number and the account successfully verified, you no longer need this SIM card to receive or send WhatsApp messages. All you need is an internet connection.
- Download and install WhatsApp on your phone.
- Verify your account using the verification code that will be sent to your number.
- Once the account is verified and ready to use, remove the SIM card from your phone and replace it with any other that you want.
- Connect your device to the internet and launch WhatsApp to start chatting and calling friends without the old SIM card.
