Hi, Yes same here no chats just shows me the groups..

As far as I know, it's not possible to move chat history in Whatsapp to any OS even though local saves are possible.

With WhatsApp, you will receive and send messages and media easily.Therefore, when switching phone, you may want to transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone. Here I will show you a convenient quick way on how totransfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone via backuptrans.

This can also transfer WhatsApp from iPhone to Android, iPhone to iPhone, Android to Android.

Does anyone as a key for backuptrans application?
