Hi there and welcome
Apps themselves will transfer via your account but not their content.
Which apps have the issue?
It is normal, only the apps get transferred.
For whatsapp it has its own internal backup but you have to have it on and you have to have the same phone number on the new phone.
For text messages you need to use an app on the old phone called Super backup
This allows you to have a file which you transfer to the new phone and you can restore your content also within the same app (this app is free from the playstore)
Easy process as long as the phone is unlocked
Make sure before you purchase it it is unlocked.
As long as the phone is unlocked it can be used. If the phone is locked it will not work.
If the person or comany you purchased it from said that is how to unlock it, that is what you will need to do.
