Here is my situation:
I am wanting to transfer my Whats App chats, contacts, etc from my (old phone) Samsung Note 3 to (new phone) Note 5.
Whats App was created on the Note 3 with a number I had in the US. I moved overseas and was still able to use Whats App with a new overseas sim card although my old number shows up when I send messages via Whats App.
I saved the backup chat file from the database folder (from the Note 3) to my laptop and transferred the file to the new phone (Note 5) but setting up Whats App on the new phone requires a phone number (to receive the verification code)...which is my overseas number....so I actually set up a new Whats App account instead of "restoring" my old account.
