I am also changing my phone, maintaining my same number. Will my status be restored to "Hi there using whatsapp"?. i.e., the default?

  • No, the account informations (including status) associated with your phone number are transferred to the new phone. – user127476 Jan 11 '16 at 16:45

No. The status is stored on WhatsApp's servers along with other basic information about your account, such as phone no, profile picture, last seen and changing your device doesn't automatically change them.
