So was wondering if I can make a whatsapp account with smspool.net but considering the fact that I would not be able to use that number again, I need to have a way to create a backup (apk + data) that can work if installed on another android.
I have been able to just move message database and folders to another android. It just asks to get otp from sms to verify that you own the number.
For this use-case perhaps an e-sim or services like ironvest where I can rent numbers are better options but I want to exhaust this option first.
Can a backup made with something like neobackup work? Or a NAND backup is needed? How does apps detect if a NAND backup is installed on another device?
As the last resort I can just use whatsapp in a vm and make backup of that

SMSPool offers rentals that you can keep. They are more expensive and limited to a few countries (USA, UK, and Russia) but they are renewable unlike their normal temporary numbers. How do I rent a non-VOIP phone number | SMSPool
Hope this helps
Guys neobackup works flawlessly!
Also turns out you can use the same phone number to resend otp on smspool
Edit: only for 15 minutes, if your luck is nice maybe
Thanks for following up with the solution that worked for you. I have never used WhatsApp, I don’t know how either. Anyways do you have any plans to use this tool in other ways.

Whatsapp blocked the account when I was trying to login to beeper app (matrix bridge). Probably because my device’s IP didn’t match the Beeper’s servers.
The backup doesn’t work because that “device” session expired on the whatsapp servers. Smspool is showing “that number is not available” when trying to resend code.
Mission failed guys, better luck next time
