Help change of phone number on whatsapp


Well-Known Member
Hi all

I don't have two mobile phones on hand so I'd like to know

if I change my phone number in whatsapp, is it true that my friend in previous conversation won't be able to send me message or I won't be able to receive it?

Or if I send them a message in the conversation, on their side they will have a new conversation windows rather than the previous one, am I true?

In other words, is it true that once I have changed the phone number, in the setting, my friends will not recognize me and I won't be able to receive their message sent to my old conversation if I don't inform them the new number?
