How to quickly find out your mobile number on your iPhone
There are often times when you pop in a new SIM and don’t know what your number is. You can use the following ways to discover the number:
- On your iPhone tap the green call button and then contacts (the number should be displayed at the very top)
- On your iPhone tap the keypad section under the same green call button and enter “*#100#” and hit the call button (No speech marks). This will send a request to the network to send back your mobile number
- Make a chargeable call to another phone you own and either dial 1471 or look at the missed call.
- Connect your iPhone to Itunes and click on the “iPhone” and then the summary page should display your number.
At least one of those methods should work unless its a very old SIM that has been re-provisioned by the network (i.e you need a new SIM as the networks tend to recycle un-used ones after 6-9 months of no chargeable activity)
These methods work on all the UK networks including Vodafone, O2, Orange, EE, T-Mobile, Giff Gaff, Tesco Mobile, Three.
