Recently I got a new phone,and finally discovered that the Whatsapp FAQ teaches how to transfer messages from one phone to another,assuming both is android.
So, I managed to transfer from my old phone-1 (Samsung Galaxy Ace 2) to my new phone and the Whatsapp manage to read it(with 9 Databases).
Then I use my old phone-2 (A type of PHICOMM phone made in China but it is an Android phone) to transfer the messages to my new phone.The problem is,when I try to transfer the old phone-2 database,the database have the same name as the old phone-1 data base,so the file manager says to overwrite or replace but I didn't do both of them because if I overwrite, I doubt the Whatsapp being able to read it. Instead, I renamed the file to
The Whatsapp read the
msgstore.db2.crypt8 instead and cannot read all at once.
Here is the 10 database names:
- msgstore.db2.crypt8 (The Old Phone 2)(3.44mb) msgstore.db.crypt8 (The Old Phone 1)(And all below this onwards is also Old Phone 1,but during the time I use Old Phone 1,I already tranfer them to the SD card to release space.)(10.48mb)
- msgstore-2015-06-16.1.db.crypt (Hm...no "8" at the back?)(9.22mb)
Question is, What name should I keep to the file msgstore.db2.crypt8 in order for the Whatsapp to read all these 10 databases?
FYI: I transferred all of the database files to my new phone's internal storage.
Update 1:Done an extra research only to find out that the file named "msgstore.db.crypt8" can only be read and those with format "msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD" are the backup messaged done on 4am and will show up for 7 days.So,how do I rename such that Whatsapp read both "msgstore.db2.crypt8" and "msgstore.db.cyrpt8"?(FAQ Link: https://www.whatsapp.com/faq/?forum=android&entry=20887921&l=fi)
Update 2:I used Old Phone 1 first,then Old phone 2 then the Old Phone 1 back then the New Phone.
The Old Phone 1 databases is from 2011 to 2014 December then Jump to 2015 May-June.
The Old Phone 2 databases is 2014 December-2015 May.
