By FonePaw | Feb 10 , 2016

WhatsApp has gain its good name for its simple however stunning features. For example the very thoughtful idea of the two blue tick marks that makes senders know the messages has been read by the receivers. I love this very much as it makes me fully control of the conversation. Another is that WhatsApp do not have users bothered to register with other emails. So I can log in and use WhatsApp directly with my phone number. Actually, I think highly of it because I am very poor at remembering accounts and passwords. So WhatsApp really do me a great favor in this aspect. But here is a question. Recently I have move to another city and have my iPhone 6 number changed, so I want to change WhatsApp Phone number on my iPhone to the new one. At the first place, I think it difficult. Luckily, it turns out to be quite simple after real practice.
