    at first I'm sorry for my bad English :D I hope you can understand it.

    I got an android smartphone with WhatsApp and my old phone Number. I got a new number because I bought the iPhone 7 from the Telekom Germany.

    Now to my question. I want to Install WhatsApp on the iPhone 7 (it is not here already, comes in 2 Weeks), and can I restore there my Backup via Google Drive or can i Transfer it via PC on the iPhone like I can transfer it from my Android Device to my PC (Copy and Paste)? Or do I have to change my Number in WhatsApp first and can do then the backup while veryfing my number?

    I can not recive Messages to my old number, because I lost my Simcard.

    I am happy to get some answers, maybe in german :D and if you got any questions then feel free to ask.

    Thanks for reading =)

    If you still have access to WhatsApp on the Android phone, there's a 'change number' option in the settings. Only the new number needs to be able to receive messages, I believe
