"Add Phone Number" and "Add WhatsApp Number" are different. "Add Phone Number" is for voice and SMS bot only.
if you would like to disconnect the WhatsApp / Voice / SMS flow with your number, or create a new flow for that number, click on the number, copy it and click "Release Number". Then your flow is disconnected but stay safe in your "All Flows". Add the number again to create a new flow with it.
