Old messages are not coming through
The background to my situation is my iphone wifi stopped working, I was able to perform a backup to icloud just before however.
I did not have whatsapp for approx 1-2 months.
When I finally had a new iphone, i expected any messages from when my phone last received up until the present to be automatically downloaded to my phone however this was not the case.
I first tried not to restore my chat sessions which did not pull down my messages, and then I tried to restore my messages which the old ones were restored from my backup however not the ones inbetween.
