When i tried backing up my old chat from google drive to my ne number on a new phone, it didnr detacted it. Does this mean i can only trasnfer chat if its the same number? If so how can i save my old chats on a new phone with a different number?

  • I don't think this can be possible. First you need to swap numbers. Log in with your old number then swap to the new one. – esQmo_ Sep 25 '17 at 0:23

Chat history backup and restore feature can be used only to change the mobile device. Because the backup will be taken for the particular mobile number and can be restored in the same number.

how do i change my whatsapp number without losing chat history

There is an inbuilt option in the whatsapp messanger to change the phone number without losing the chat history. Please read the official documentaion to do the same.
