                    [-n MNC] [-p PHONE] [-C CC] [-r (sms|voice)] [-R code]

WhatsApp Registration options

  Config file is optional. Other configuration arguments have higher
  priority if given, and will override those specified in the config file

  -c CONFIG, --config CONFIG
                        Path to config file. If this is not set then you must
                        set at least --phone and --cc arguments
  -m MCC, --mcc MCC     Mobile Country Code. Check your mcc here:
                        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_country_code
  -n MNC, --mnc MNC     Mobile Network Code. Check your mnc from
                        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_country_code
  -p PHONE, --phone PHONE
                        Your full phone number including the country code you
                        defined in 'cc', without preceeding '+' or '00'
  -C CC, --cc CC        Country code. See http://www.ipipi.com/help/telephone-
                        country-codes.htm. This is now required

Modes:
  -r (sms|voice), --requestcode (sms|voice)
                        Request the digit registration code from Whatsapp.
  -R code, --register code
                        Register account on Whatsapp using the code you
                        previously received

WhatsApp registration involves 2 steps. First you need to request a registration code. And then you resume the registration with code you got.

Example:

yowsup-cli registration --requestcode sms --phone 49XXXXXXXX --cc 49 --mcc 123 --mnc 456
yowsup-cli registration --register 123456 --phone 49XXXXXXXX --cc 49
