    I've moved from an OLD iPhone 5 to a (new) iPhone 6 (used the same phone number thru). I've backed up my whatsapp on icloud from my *new* phone.

    * Is it safe to delete the whatsapp app (meaning app and data) from the old iPhone ?
    * I want to set up whatsapp on the old phone with a different # .
    * tips / tricks / precautions ...all would be thankfully acknowledged

    I have read some help and FAQs, but request some "real" experience / pitfalls to avoid

    thanks in advance
    best regards

    If you're using WA on the new phone and it's all there, then yeah, you can delete it from the old phone.

    Just reinstall the app and go through setup again with the new number

    tips - only have friends with iPhones and use iMessage ;)
