Hi, I hope You can help me with a Problem. I have a us phone with a US sim Card and am in Germany right now. I Need to use a german sim Card to download a german app, which will not take longer than 30 minutes. I did make a backup on Google drive for the Chat history. Do I have to uninstall WhatsApp before I add the german sim Card, will I have any issues with any restore because the german sim Card has a different Number, any issues when I put the US sim Card in again? Could You possibly walk me through this? Thank You so much.

I've switched several times between sims with different numbers. I didn't see any problem - you just won't receive new messages in WhatsApp while you'll have new sim card inside. But you'll have all history and when return old sim card you'll start to receive messages
