I'm also wondering about switching phones.

With BB if you are switching between phones, you could used the device switch program that will move over all your info. I am pretty sure that the what'sapp info has also moved.

My Q' is anyone that switched to the BB10 - (from a BB) where they able to move over their whatsapp chats?

There are plenty of free messaging apps. And actually some I like better than WhatsApp. I only stick with WhatsAPP since most of my friends are using it.

They could block you from seeing them. But otherwise you should see everyone just fine.
