How to Find Your Own Number on iPhone and Android.
When you buy a new SIM card, a unique identifier (such as a phone number) assigned to the SIM card is often printed on the packaging. However, some operators do not assign phone numbers to SIM cards until they are registered or activated.
Let's say you lost your SIM card packaging or you can't remember the phone number assigned to your SIM card. How else can I find out my phone number? Finding your phone number is pretty easy if you have an Android or iOS device.
However, the steps will vary depending on your phone model, operating system, user interface (UI), etc. This guide shows you how to find your phone number on Android phones, iOS devices, and even mobile phones. You'll also learn how to find your phone number on Mac and Windows computers.
Find Your Phone Number on iPhone and iPad
When you insert a SIM card into your iPhone or iPad, Siri will automatically detect your phone number in the settings menu and add it to your contact card.
Launch the Phone app, go to the Contacts tab, and tap your name in the My Card section. Or open the Contacts app and select the name card to see your phone number.
You can remove a phone number if it's incorrect. Tap the Phone card, select Don't suggest a phone number, and select Don't suggest a phone number again in the confirmation prompt.
Siri will remove the phone number from your contact card and stop suggesting the phone number as yours.
You can also find your phone number in the iOS settings menu. Open the Settings app, select Phone, and check your phone number in the My Number bar.
You can always edit or change the phone number if it's incorrect. Click My Number, enter the correct phone number and click Save.
Please note that this phone number may be different from your Apple ID, which is the phone number associated with your iCloud account. Your Apple ID phone number is used for two-factor authentication, sign-in verification, account password reset, and more.
To check your Apple ID phone number on iPhone and iPad, open the Settings app, select your Apple ID name, tap Name, Phone Numbers, Email, and check the phone number under Available at.< /p>
To set up an alternate phone number for your Apple ID account, click Change, click Add Email Address or Phone Number, and select Add Phone Number from the pop-up window.

If you're using a Mac, connect your iPhone or iPad to your Mac using a USB cable and follow the steps below. Please note that you may be required to enter your device password.
Launch Finder and select your iPhone or iPad under Locations in the sidebar.
Select your iPhone model name, serial number, or storage information until your phone number appears in the section.
Your iPhone's phone number will appear next to your IMEI number.

Find iPhone Phone Number on Windows
All you need to view your iPhone phone number on a Windows computer is a USB cable and the iTunes app. Install iTunes from the Microsoft Store, connect your iPhone to your computer, and follow these steps.
Note. When you connect iPhone to your computer, you may be prompted to allow your computer to access your data. Tap Trust and enter your iPhone passcode to continue if prompted.
Open iTunes and select the phone icon in the toolbar next to the Music/Movies/TV Shows/Podcasts/Audiobooks drop-down menu.
This will redirect you to a new page with information about your device.
Go to the "Summary" tab in the sidebar and check the "Phone number" line to see the phone number of your iPhone.
If you have a Dual SIM iPhone, you will find two phone numbers on this page: "Phone Number 1" for SIM 1 and "Phone Number 2" for SIM 2.
The iTunes app also lets you copy your iPhone's phone number to your clipboard. Right-click the number and select Copy.
Find Your Phone Number on Android
The steps to verify your Android phone number may vary depending on your device model and operating system version. However, Android also has several built-in mechanisms for verifying your mobile phone number.
You can check the phone number associated with your SIM card in the settings menu, in the Messages app, and with carrier-specific USSD codes.
Find a phone number in the Android settings menu
Open the Settings app, select "About phone" and check the "Phone number" lines for your mobile phone number.
If you are not using the standard Android interface (such as Samsung and LG), go to Settings > About Device (or About Phone) > Status > My Phone Number.
Android will display multiple phone numbers if your phone uses more than one SIM slot/port. If your phone number is listed as Unknown, restart your phone and check again. You can also try removing and reinserting the SIM card.
If your phone number is still listed as "Unknown", check if it has the latest version of Android. Otherwise, go to Settings > System > Advanced > System Update and make sure you have the latest version of Android on your phone.
Find a phone number in Messages
The Messages app settings menu is another quick way to find your Android phone number. Open the Messages app, select the menu icon in the top left corner and select Settings. After that, select "More" and check the phone number of your device at the bottom of the screen.
Use USSD Codes or Contact Your Network Carrier
Some cellular networks have unique short codes for checking phone numbers. These codes are mostly free and the results are instant. Dial the short code and the number assigned to the SIM card on your phone will appear on the screen as a service message. Some carriers may send an SMS or text message to your phone number.
A simple Google search should reveal your carrier's USSD network code to verify phone numbers. Better yet, contact your carrier by phone, especially if you have a feature phone or don't have Internet access.
