Consider the possibility of using WhatsApp without a phone number or SIM card. This post will teach you two tried-and-true methods to access this overall messaging system on your Android tablet, iPad, PC, or even a mobile phone without a SIM card.
How to Use WhatsApp Without a Phone Number or SIM
As previously stated, we tried two WhatsApp methods without a phone number or SIM card, and you can try both and choose the one that works best for you.
Before moving forward with either approach, you must first complete the following conditions using WhatsApp without a phone number or SIM card.
1. Download WhatsApp to your tablet, phone, or computer if you haven’t already.
2. If you’ve already installed WhatsApp on your smartphone, see if you’ve verified it.
3. If you’ve already verified WhatsApp, you can delete your current phone number by uninstalling and reinstalling the app.
Method 1: Use TextNow to Verify WhatsApp
The first method involves downloading the TextNow messaging app to your phone. This messaging software provides you with a one-of-a-kind phone number that you can use to verify your account on WhatsApp.
1. Download TextNow to your device
Download the TextNow app to your device from the Google Play Store, iTunes App Store, or Windows Phone Store. Then, launch your Android emulator and search for TextNow if you want to use WhatsApp on your PC.
2. Open the TextNow app & Note down Your Number
After downloading the TextNow app to your smartphone, launch it and go through the setup process. Make a note of your phone number once the app has been installed.
If TextNow does not display your phone number, or if you forgot to write it down, you can find it by following the steps outlined below.
Android: Once the app is open, tap the three-line icon in the top left corner of your Android device to reveal your phone number.
iPhone: In the top left corner of your iPhone, iPod, or iPad, tap the three-line icon. When you click on the three-line icon, your phone number should appear.

When you launch the app, go to the People page, and you should see your phone number.
3. Open up WhatsApp and Verify Number
After you have written down your TextNow number, launch WhatsApp on your phone, tablet, or PC and proceed with the steps below.
Enter your TextNow Number into WhatsApp
You will be asked to provide your phone number once you have agreed to WhatsApp’s terms and conditions. Choose your country and the TextNow number when prompted to enter your phone number.
Wait for SMS Verification to Fail
Wait 5 minutes for SMS verification to fail. If SMS verification fails, you will be required to call your phone. Click the Call Me option to receive an automatic call from WhatsApp.
Get your WhatsApp Verification Number
When you launch the TextNow app on your device, you should receive a WhatsApp call. Once you receive the phone, an automated message from WhatsApp will repeatedly repeat your verification code. Therefore, keep a record of your verification number.
Enter Verification Code in WhatsApp
Then, into WhatsApp, enter the verification code you received from the automated call.
Finish the setup process in WhatsApp after entering your verification code. You have now created a WhatsApp account without providing a phone number.
If this strategy doesn’t work for you, you can try textPlus or the second method listed below.
Method 2: Use Existing Landline to Verify WhatsApp
The next step is to validate WhatsApp with your existing home phone/landline number. Then, follow the steps below to use WhatsApp without a mobile phone number or SIM card.
Open WhatsApp on your phone, tablet, or PC
Open up the WhatsApp app on your phone, tablet, or PC.
Enter Your Home Phone/Landline number
Once prompted to enter your number, choose your country, then enter your home phone/landline number.
Wait for Verification by SMS to Fail
SMS verification will fail after about 5 minutes, and you will be given the option to Call Me. Select the Call Me option and enter your home phone/landline number to receive a call via WhatsApp.
Enter the Verification Code
WhatsApp will now call your landline number automatically. Your six-digit verification code will be repeated several times by an automated voice. Would you please save this verification code and enter it into WhatsApp?
Complete the Setup Process
After you’ve verified WhatsApp on your device, complete the setup process, and you’ll be able to communicate with your friends on WhatsApp without using your phone number or SIM card.
