Been using WhatsApp on my Android for ages, but I just got a new iPhone and have registered WhatsApp on it with the same number, however, I didn't realize I would lose visible access to all my old messages on the Android. I plan on going back to AT&T, have them activate my old Android again, and then I'll put in a SIM card using the same number, and then re-activate my old WhatsApp so I can see all my messages again and export them? That will work, right?
I just did this today and I realized I need to backup some important text messages first. I'd like to save those messages from the Android before I start completely using WhatsApp on my iPhone. I've saved the DB files just in case. I plan on de-regestering Whatsapp on the iPhone first. I want to make sure I am doing things correctly so that I don't accidentally overwrite my old messages (if that is even possible).
thank you for the help.
