WhatsApp

I forgot my password: WhatsApp does not use passwords, email addresses or usernames. Everything is tied to your phone number only.

I am changing my phone or phone number: Before getting rid of your old phone or number, see http://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/general/28030001.

If you have lost your phone or changed your phone number already, you cannot move your old account to your new number or device. The only way you can migrate any of your old WhatsApp data is if it is done while you still have access to the original account with the original device. Even then, all data may not be able to make the transition.
