8 Ways To Check Your Mobile Number From Your SIM

If none of the steps mentioned above work for you, here are some common ways you can use to find out your mobile number using your SIM.

1. Call a Friend

Since it is simple, this approach has been used for years. To email, all you require is a friend, family member, or anyone nearby. Easily text or call this person, and your phone number will show on their device.

2. Call Customer Services

You can get your telephone number by contacting your network provider. When you call customer support, your information, even your phone number, will frequently show on their screens. This isn't necessarily the case, as in when you dial customer support from your landline. If that's the case, you can note down your SIM card number in case you are approached for it.

3. Check Your Phone Settings

The most popular way to locate your phone number on Android is to go to Settings > About phone/device > Status/phone identity > Network. This varies marginally on Apple products, where you can go to Settings > Phone > My Number.

4. Look in Your Contacts

You could locate your mobile number in your Contacts on both Android and Apple phones by tapping on the contact's application and navigating to the top of the page. In iOS, select ‘My Card' or ‘My Number,' while in Android, select the ‘ME' touch. Your mobile number, as well as any other contact information, will be shown here. Menus on Android phones vary somewhat in terms of where the mobile number is kept. This will need you to search around a little to find your phone number.

On an iPhone: If you do have an Apple iPhone, you can locate your mobile number in the menus or Phone > Contacts > My Number.

5. Check Your SIM Card Pack

If you really need to locate your SIM card number, it might be on the box that the SIM card came in. If you do not have the original packaging, you'll have to extract the SIM card from your handset to check the number.

6. Visit a Store

If you haven't reached your mobile phone number utilising any of the approaches mentioned above, you should go to the retail outlet of the network to which you are subscribed. Retail stores may be busy, however they are customer-focused and will gladly assist you.

7. Find a Bill or Contract

If you have a mobile phone bill and the documentation is accessible, your mobile number will be written on this. Your number can be found on your initial deal, update documents, or all of your paper bills.

8. Log Into Your Online Account

Some people can view their cell phone account online. If you've already set this earlier, you could login into the system online. You should bookmark this tab in your browser to make it easier to do this in the future.

9. Using WhatsApp

You can also search your number from WhatsApp by going to the Settings And Profile Tab (you can check your mobile phone number there).
