Recall that WhatsApp uses mobile number during verification process in which you'll be given a code which you'll use to verify your sim on WhatsApp. Unfortunately, you can use a single number to verify two WhatsApp accounts. This implies that when you verify WhatsApp with your mobile number on your device, you won't be able to utilize the number on another device. This being one of the issues facing most Whatsapp users, but since when you're here, we have a solution for that. You'll simply need to download an application that enables you to receive text messages on another number which you can use to activate WhatsApp.

Installing WhatsApp on your tablet with your own phone number
