My very old phone was not smart so I used its number to set up WhatsApp on my tablet (not a phone). That worked well.
The number is now on my new smartphone. When I installed WhatsApp on the new phone it disconnected the tablet. If if I reconnect the tablet it disconnects the phone.
Can I get both devices connected so I can use WhatsApp on whichever is convenient?

Thanks in advance

According to WhatsApp there is no official way for the same account on two devices simultaneously.

However, an idea that crosses my mind if to have WhatsApp installed and verified on one device (your phone) and on the tablet make use of WhatsApp Web on your tablet's internet browser.

Good luck.

same here, mostly....
have a S20 with whatsapp, no problems at all.(until)

I then bought a JoyTAB 2, (tablet =0 phones here but DUO)
and made the blunder,, installed whatsapp on JOYTAB 2 (oops)
it works but now the S20 is dead for whatsapp. (not what I want)

it tells me, no contracts there on s20, now,
omg how to go backwards now?
how do I Regress my bad ACT..

please help. thanks to all.
