    I am one of those people that switched from being a Iphone user to an android phone. Till this point I can't put my Iphone away because all my old chats are saved on it. I would like to continue with my old chats on the android.

    So my question is there a way to transfer these (old) chats to my android account ? Has anyone else dealt with this problem??

    I don't believe this is possible... You can transfer them from Android devices once you have made the switch

    Same problemen here, and I think it's not possible. You have to get Whatsapps database file from the memory of the phone. And since you can't get into the memory of an iphone it's not possible to copy that to your new phone. :(

    There is also this http://www.whatsappmigrator.com/

    The real problem here is Whatsapp though. In 2014, they still do not offer any cloud sync or desktop/tablet client, and they even want money! All the other free chats offer all the above, so you never have to worry about that! What are they asking money for then?

    Well that is not the problem, you can get in an iphone it just takes more time. I have been able to extract the file that was needed and am currently in the process of trying it to get it on my one

    I don't have to point out that you could use telegram on more then one device at the same time including PC/MAC without "losing" anything (minus the private chats with the E2E encryption)?

    Ah well, why bother switching apps even if they have better features, do support more devices, are free and without ads?

    What you might be able to do is sent the whole chat to someone and that someone returns the chat back to you after you switched phones. If WA even has that option...

    Your media should be in the media folder of WA. That's easy to get. :D

    Indeed, only the map is huge :). I live in the Netherlands, everyone uses whatsapp, so it doesn't make sense to use telegram and talk to the 3 people that are on there.

    Was simple to me. I told them there was a secret whatsapp build out there with better features, disguised in blue (since telegram and WA do look alike, down to the emoji). Now I barely got more then 4 contacts who are not on telegram - and those can sent me an email if they want to be stubborn. :)
