If you want to use WhatsApp Messenger and WhatsApp Business on the same phone, you’ll need to buy a second virtual phone number so you can switch between both apps.

There’s no need to provide a second phone for your reception staff. Just download the free WhatsApp Business App and activate it using the number we give you.
Absolutely. With more than 1.4 billion monthly active users, including your new WhatsApp Business contact details on your Facebook page is a great idea.

Business owners everywhere are utilising YourBusinessNumber #YBN and business messaging apps.
No, you can use it for other messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal and Viber. You can also use it to sign up other apps such as Uber or Deliveroo.
You need a second number for WhatsApp Business as you are not permitted to use the same number as your regular WhatsApp account. This would mean buying another phone with an extra monthly contract or pay as you go SIM. With YBN you can get that number to run your business through WhatsApp Business without having to buy a second phone and for a considerably cheaper price than another contract.
No, it’s not possible to use WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone. You can only use one number per account.
YBN numbers can only be used in messaging apps. The number attached to your sim card is for normal calls and SMS messages. If someone places a normal call to your YBN number it gets forwarded to the mobile number you signed up with (your main number) and you have a talk time of up to 1 minute.
No. An eSIM is an embedded chip inside your phone that acts exactly like a traditional SIM card, removing the need for swapping SIM cards if you move networks. You can have more than one plan from different networks on an eSIM, but the drawback with this is that you can only use one network at a time. With a number from YBN, you don’t have the issue of using one at a time - you can use your business number in tandem with your personal number, whilst still being able to separate it out.
Yes, you can have both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business but as stated above you need a different number for each WhatsApp and would therefore need to buy another phone with another SIM. YourBusinessNumber gives you a UK mobile number that allows you to use both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone.
