I just want to share this with newbies that may be lost just as I was until I found a better solution to importing backing phrases from one wallet to another
1)Not all wallets accept more than 12 backup phrases



imagine if you are asked to insert 12backup phrases like in the picture above to import your wallet when you have 24 or more backup phrases.

2)You might import your 24 or 26 backup phrases into a wallet that accepts more than 12backup phrases and your fund will be missing,don't panic,the truth is some wallets will generate a new address instead of importing your address from your old wallet.

Why is this happening?well not all wallets are programmed to response to backup phrases as the rest. To fix this find way to get your private keys,with private keys you won't have to worry about importing from one wallet to another because it works directly.

If you want to get your private keys go straight to https://iancoleman.io and import your backup phrases either 12,16,24 or 26. If you find it hard to use iancoleman then the perfect solution is here,get ENJIN wallet

Why ENJIN wallet?well it supports all backup phrases from all available wallets, either you are coming from COPAY,MYCELIUM,COINOMI,MYETHER OR TRUST you will get your coins and tokens intact and perfectly just like it was on your old wallet,this picture below is how ENJIN wallet handles importing

And mind you it supports private keys as well.
This is why I think ENJIN wallet is the most convenient mobile wallet for newbies.

ENJIN wallet gets the job done easily by just selecting which wallet you are coming from but I'd suggest newbies should learn how to get their hands on their wallet private keys instead of backup phrases

Been hearing mostly good things about this wallet, but there's one thing that made me not recommend it for usage. It's not open source. While I don't think Enjin is planning on doing something fishy sometime in the future(probably and hopefully), I'd still recommend open source wallets if I was asked.

I personally use non-open source bitcoin wallets though, because I only store very small amounts anyway, because I sometimes need some bitcoin when I'm not home. With altcoins though? There's really no reason for me to store altcoins through a mobile wallet.

If I may ask,what do you mean by open source? Can you give me an example of an open source wallet?thanks

Coinomi gives you the seed when you create the wallet, and also allows you to see the seed anytime you like. I use it for like 2 years and never had any problems, it is a very good multilcurrency wallet. THe only problem is that it is not open source.

Usually wallets do not let you see the private key only by clicking some button, because there is no need. The seed is enough.

With the seed you can just go to iancoleman.io/bip39 , insert your seed, and look at the private key of each address you want.

If I may ask,what do you mean by open source? Can you give me an example of an open source wallet?thanks

Open source is a program that its code is accessible to anyone, who can view, inspect, modify, etc... bitcoin protocol is open source. Wallets such as Electrum and Bitcoin Core are open source. Electrum is probably the best wallet out there, IMO.

Closed source code may add malicious script inside their program to steal/spy etc... Also, closed source programs may have bugs or security breaches that were not detected by developers of the software but could be detected by other people, if it were open source. So, open source programs are usually safer.

What is open source software?

Open source software is software with source code that anyone can inspect, modify, and enhance.

"Source code" is the part of software that most computer users don't ever see; it's the code computer programmers can manipulate to change how a piece of software—a "program" or "application"—works. Programmers who have access to a computer program's source code can improve that program by adding features to it or fixing parts that don't always work correctly.

You should be browsing coinomi more often. You can actually find your recovery phrase ( which is the private key ) in their settings, click the show recovery phrase and input your password.

In there you can now see your recovery phrase and can import it to other wallet.

If you rely on your backup phrase what will happen if coinomi stop working?since you have no private key you won't be able to import backup phrase in all available wallets,only few like enjin supports coinomi backup phrases

You can use a mnemonic code converter if you couldn't import your backup phrase on a wallet you're planning on using: https://github.com/iancoleman/bip39

Every wallet out there support the recovery phrase. if it doesn't, it is a shitty wallet, stay away (the only exception is bitcoin core)
The recovery phrase is a mathematical function that contains all the privatekeys of all possible generated addresses in your wallet, of all possible coins it supports now and will ever support in the future.

If coinomi supports a new coin tomorrow, the privatekey for that new coin will be contained in the recovery phrase.
Technology and math are  like magic.
