    Hello,
    I am kissing goodbye to my Nokia C5 (Symbian S60 OS) and I would like to migrate all WhatsApp chats to an iPhone 5s.
    I searched for a tutorial but found nothing.
    Could someone please tell me if somewhere this procedure is explained?

    In the whatsapp setting under chats you should see backup settings make sure there on and your backed up after that if your changing number then go to accounts and click change number and enter your new number.

    Once that's done download whatsapp from the AppStore and load the app. Follow the prompts and your chats will be restored.

    Thank you.
    So I have to backup all chats, find the backup file in the Nokia phone, copy it to the iPhone, download and install WhatsApp on the iPhone, and then use the back up file to restore all chats.
