Will my contacts appear on my new iPhone (same phone number)?
I broke my phone yesterday, its completely dead, so I ordered a new phone for which I will keep the same number as my old phone which I used whatsapp on.
My new phone is coming in a couple of days, my question is, when I get my new phone as it will have the same number when I download whatsapp will I be able to see my contacts which I had on my old phone? or if not if they message me when I get my new phone will it come through on that phone or be sent to my old one?

Re: new phone, same number, will I see my contacts on new phone?
1. If you plan to restore a backup made with your old phone to your new phone, then yes, your contacts should appear on your new device after the restore process is complete.
2. If WhatsApp store copies of your contacts on its servers then I'd like to think that you will have access to them once you've installed the app on your new device and sign in.
