I am using my WhatsApp account which is associated with a phone number that I no longer own. Now I just bought a new phone and want to move my WhatsApp account from the old phone to the new phone but can't receive the verification code. Is there a solution? Thanks for your help

Hi Jamal, welcome to AndroidPIT! :)

You simply need to switch to the new phone number on your old phone. Open the settings of WhatsApp and click on Account. You will see the option to switch the phone number. After that backup your data and switch to the new phone.
