    I need to send my phone back for repair

    I've got an old galaxy S2 that I was going to use while my other phone is getting repaired

    I changed the sim over thinking that whatsapp is linked to the phone number, however it still seem to be linked to the phone that needs repairing as I was getting messages when it was connected to wifi

    Any ideas how to change it to my old phone temporarily , then back to the repaired one?

    Although whatsapp uses your phone number to identify you, & will use the sim to set the app up, it is not then dependent on the sim. You need to go through the set up process on your temporary device & probably repeat that when you return to your other phone. Any paid subscription period will be recognised & continue normally.
