I believe the guy changed (or at least removed/inserted) the SIM. When he was done, he told me to go home and after 30 minutes turn it off/on. It worked. I have a new number and everybody (the apps)...

Yeah, but I wasn't sending it through WhatsApp. He was not online, and I had gotten a message that he was blocking ordinary messages (texts). In effect, he has become incommunicado.

At any rate, things are not working. WhatsApp doesn't seem to accept that my number has changed and I can't make it do so. I guess I can delete it (how does one delete an app?) and re-install it.

Apparently, these companies keep a "hot list" of known bad guys (drug dealers, etc.) and they don't want them using their app for nefarious communications. Or something like that.

OK - did a little research.

Apparently the app like to run on an Android phone - it's free to use and can handle voice as well.

I'm so behind the curve. :(
