If I have messages off an unsaved number in my whatsapp and change my number to my new one, will they get my new number? Like is a whatsapp account like Independant but uses numbers as usernames so would I still receive their messages but when I reply it give them my new number? X

Hey mate, 

 

When you installed the app the number you put in will be the number that shows to them Smiley Happy 

 

So it should be the old number Smiley Wink

 

Thanks

No mate, they will get your old number - 

 

I changed my phone number, how can I update WhatsApp?

Step 1: update your WhatsApp status with new phone number. Step 2: delete WhatsApp and re-install and register with your new phone number

Your new number will be used and shown to others as far as I'm aware.

numbers are used as user names so when you change your number its likely to affect whatsapp, just send a broadcast message to all your friends telling them that you got a new number, or use giffgaffs unlimited texts to text them all haha just to be on the safe side

The problem is the unsaved number is the reason I changed it so I really don't want them to have the new number but due to current circumstances I can block them in whatsapp at this current moment, is it best to leave whatsapp as my old number as i dot want them calling my new number? X

They can? If that's the case, this is what I'm worried about. I really don't want them to have my new number. X
