On my phone I used my T-mobile number as well as my Google voice number. I registered to Whatsapp using my Google voice number. How can I check in Whatsapp which number it uses?

I use a Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900A) with Android 4.4.2.


The number WhatsApp uses is the one you registered with; to see it go to menu (the three dots at the top right corner) -> account -> payment info and there you will see which number is associated with the WhatsApp account.

EDIT: Since WhatsApp removed the payment, it is possible to check the connected number by opening the settings menu and tapping on the badge displaying name, status and profile picture.

    There is no more "Payment Info" item under Account with the latest version (I'm looking at 2.17.24) – friederbluemle Feb 10 '17 at 10:58
