GetHuman-grythele's next move: go to the WhatsApp help center.
WhatsApp doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-grythele will want to follow the link below to head to their help center. We will check on GetHuman-grythele later to make sure it's all set or try to help escalate.
Before contacting them, items GetHuman-grythele may need:
Account Number, Email on Account, Phone Number, Name of Account Holder, Country, WhatsApp Version Type, and Device Used
The issue in GetHuman-grythele's own words
I lost my Samsung phone in Germany. The phone number assigned to that phone was different from the phone number assigned to my WhatsApp account on that phone. *Now I'm back in the US, had to buy new phone. Still using the same phone number (that's different from the phone number assigned to the whatsapp account). I still know the phone number assigned to that Whatsapp account, but I can't use it to retrieve my contacts or messages, because the system tells me that it'll sent me an sms message to that phone, which I don't use the number now, nor do I have that phone to backup because it was lost there. So how do I retreive my contacts & messages, only knowing my old phone number on that account?
