Want to use your phone number with WhatsApp Messenger?
Here’s your go-to guide for how to connect once you have already purchased a number.
**Note that NumberBarn cannot guarantee that your number will work with WhatsApp due to the carrier and/or other factors. Whatsapp officially states on their website that they do not support VoIP numbers which means it's very likely your NumberBarn and NumberGarage numbers will not work. We have, however, found that some do. If your number is already working with another provider, it will continue to work with WhatsApp if you transfer it to us. If your number is not supported, you will receive an error message when trying to configure the app.**
After downloading and opening WhatsApp on your phone, you’ll need to confirm your country code and enter your NumberBarn or NumberGarage phone number into the text field below. Then, select Done to proceed to the next step.
Verify through a text message sent to your NumberBarn or NumberGarage phone number. You can access your messages from within your NumberBarn or NumberGarage account or via email.
Enter the code from the message into WhatsApp to verify your number.
Once your number has been verified, enter your name. You can also upload a profile picture. Then, select Done.
Now, you’re connected and can start texting friends and family!
