Is there anyway to whatsapp a number without first saving it?

Open your browser and type wa.me/phonenumber

(Replace phonenumber with the number that you want to message)

Cool didn't know that shortcut, I always used the full link https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=x-xxx-xxx-xxxx.
Be sure to include the country code.

Yup, doesn't work without a country code. So just wa.me/1 and then the 10 digits.

If I have WhatsApp on an iPhone and want to switch it to a different iPhone with a different Apple ID, does anyone know of a way to back up/switch over my messages to the new phone?

Android: All previous media suddenly disappeared in the app but still available in gallery. After much digging it seems like What's App moved file locations from Internal Storage>What's App>etc. to Internal Storage>Android>Media>com.what'sapp>What's App>etc., but all my previous pictures are still stuck in the old location which is showing up in the gallery and not in the What's App chats. Any solution?
