Hi,
I did my WhatsApp backup correctly in 2018 over Android 5.0.2 (Lenovo A 7000 mobile). Now I have changed my mobile (Samsung A 20, Android 9.0 (Pie)) and using a new phone number also.
Can I restore my '2018 Whatsapp back' to my Samsung A 20 mobile?
OR
If I buy the same old phone set (Lenovo A7000) then can I restore my '2018 Whatsapp backup' using a new number here in this set (Lenovo A7000)?
Your advice will be highly appreciated.
Thanks

I think that you will have to change the phone number in your WhatsApp account to your new one on that old device. Is this impossible now? :(

Download size < 0.08 MB. But also Ad-free, Pure & Accurate enough.

Not at all sir.
Now that old sim card is being used by some other person.

As long as you use the same google account, it is possible to change the phone number.

Register the same Google account on the A20, and try restoring a backup from the account, even using the new number.

Isn't possible, sorry but it seems you can't restore it now.
