Update - you can no longer change phone number in BeReal! This option was recently removed from BeReal app.
BeReal app was updated and here is what it says now on BeReal help center:
It's currently not possible to transfer an account to a new number. However, it's something we are actively working on. We'll make sure to update this article as soon as it's possible.
It is not clear if transferring an account to a new number means same as changing phone number in current account.
The instruction I provided below worked with a previous version of the app, but now a link to BeReal typeform was removed. There is no option to change phone number in Contact Us section or anywhere else in the app at the moment.
Maybe this change is related millions of new users in BeReal and problems it creates when you need to migrate thousands of accounts.
