Default Migrate Whatsapp onto my new Android device

I have a Google Nexus One phone that I joyfully used for 1.5yr. I have a Whatsapp that is linked to a phone number that no longer in service, but I still happen to receive messages from that phone number, now and then.

Now I am moving to Galaxy Tab 7.7 (no forum in here yet), but how do I migrate the old Whatsapp no to the new device witout re-activating it? Is there any backup software that can migrate the whatsapp with all the functionalities/message history without reactivating the phonr? Please help, I'm reallt stucked. thanks a lot.

What is the best backup Android apps without rooting the phone?

I am not too sure on the app itself as I don't use it, but using another app to back it up without root, most likely, isn't possible. Android locks each app to itself to limit security risks.

Whatsapp backs up it's messages every night to your sd card (assuming that option is selected in whatsapp settings) as well as on internal memory. If you download whatsapp to another phone, but use the same sd card in that phone, on launch, it'll ask if you want to restore the messages.

If you have root -use titanium backup and restore on the new phone.

Titanium Backup requires root access...

do settings>more>chat history backup. Then look for the whatsapp folder on the sd and move that to the new device and that might work maybe. whatsapp might need the original number to also be verified on the new device which might prevent you from using that backup. You really need root to solve a root problem though.

Backup chats on sd card -> move to new phone -> install whatsapp -> restore from backup.
