If your WhatsApp subscription is about to expire and you don't know how to renew it, go to the menu with the settings of the app (on Android you can access it by pressing the icon with i three dots you see at the top right), select the items Account> Payment Info from the screen that opens and choose one of the available plans: 1 year (€ 0,89), 3 years (€ 2,40) o 5 years (€ 3,34).
At this point, press the payment button at the bottom (eg. Google Wallet on Android) and confirm your willingness to renew your WhatsApp subscription by pressing Buy Now. If you do not want to use the default payment method (the credit card associated with your smartphone), press on price of the subscription you see at the top right (eg. 0,89 €), select the voice payment methods from the menu that opens and select one of the available options: PayPal, telephone credit (only with SIM Wind) o discount code. Easier than that?
If you prefer, you can also send yourself a link for the WhatsApp payment via email and perform the transaction via computer (using PayPal). Find all the details on this procedure in my guide on how to pay for WhatsApp from your PC.
How to reactivate a WhatsApp account
You have bought a new smartphone and you want to know how to activate WhatsApp so that you do not miss your conversations and, above all, the payment of the subscription to the service? No problem.
WhatsApp identifies users by their phone number, so even if you change your smartphone, you don't have to worry: if you haven't changed your SIM too, by installing the application on your new smartphone, the system will automatically recognize you and restore all the data relating to your license. .
To restore the conversations, however, you need to copy the backup files from the old phone to your smartphone and confirm the restoration of the chats as illustrated in my tutorial on how to reinstall WhatsApp.
Do you want to transfer the WhatsApp license from one number to another? This can also be done. Start the application on the mobile phone with the old number, go to the menu Settings> Accounts and select the item Change number from the screen that opens.
So press on the button NEXT located at the top right and enter the two numbers involved in the procedure. The passage of the subscription data will take place almost instantly.
Unblock locked WhatsApp account
Has your WhatsApp account been blocked and you no longer know how to access it? Don't worry, the last word has not yet been said.
If, on the other hand, you find the message on the WhatsApp home screen Your number is not authorized to use our service the situation is more serious: your account has been "banned" indefinitely following the violation of the rules of the service and there is no way to solve the problem.
Your only hope is to contact the WhatsApp staff at the email address email@example.com and hope your reasons are heard. For more information about it, read my guide on how to reactivate WhatsApp.How to activate WhatsApp
