The issue in GetHuman1220187's own words
My old phone number was deactivated*doesn't work anymore. In fact when i was trying to log into my whatsapp account it asked to confirm the number, which i did (with the deactivated one, which at that time i did not know was deactivated), and it sent that phone number the confirmation code. So some random person now is logged into my whatsapp. *I went to my provider and got a new simcard*Number. I deleted my previous whatsapp, re-downloaded it and after the terms it asks for the phone number. I put the New number in and click Done. After this a window pops up saying "cant register with this phone umber. You can only register with the phone number that was last used with Whatsapp on this phone." Even using the old phone number it says the same thing. What can i do to get my old, or a new Whatsapp account on my phone?
GetHuman1220187 did not yet indicate what WhatsApp should do to make this right.
