    Default "My Number" one my iPhone is wrong?

    I have a 4 gig unlocked iPhone that I am using with t-mobile. All is working just fine. For some reason under "My Number" on top of the contacts page it is listing my girlfriends number. Could the sim card be confused? Am I the only person that this has happened to?

    I receive all calls and text just fine. It even identifies me as the correct caller ID info when I call someone. I looked through the settings and see no way to change this.

    Use the Siemens M55 that havent got phonecode lock to solve this. Even the Sony Ericsson T60 has the features to modify your own number. Yes, this is not the problem with software nor hardware hack. Your own sim phone number has been changed. I'm sure that it was setup with your previous mobile phone. Get your previous mobile back, edit it and pop the sim back to the iPhone.

    Put my SIM back in my Razr, did a master clear, master reset and checked, by use of #686#, and it listed my number on the Razr as the right number. Placed the card back in my iPhone and it still says that wrong number. WEIRD.

    I'm having this issue as well - SIM transferred from a Nokia phone. Not a huge biggie, but if anyone can figure it out would be swell...

    Had the same problem. I put in my GF's sim card into my iPhone and her number was stuck there. So I put my simcard into a Samsung E900, and under the "My Phone Number" option, I put in my name and number. Then I put it back on my iPhone, it still says my gf's number. Then I restarted the iPhone. Restarted iTunes. Then reconnect my phone to iTunes and my number popped up just fine.

    I've had this as well. Some network store 'your' number on the SIM. So when you check a menu on the phone, it comes up.

    If you were to change your number, the network would send a SIM update and change it. This would be reflected on the phone accordingly - it is not a phonebook entry.

    Now, I had only used my Vodafone UK (they do not store the number on the SIM) sim card in the iPhone so iTunes was displaying n/a in the number field.

    I tried my T-Mobile UK card (who store the number on the SIM), now the number in iTunes has updated to 44xxxxxxxxx etc. This obviously has been copied to somewhere on the iPhone as my VF UK sim is back in and there have been no changes to that sim.

    Any one any ideas on how to edit/remove this entry without re-flasing the iPhone?

    Thanks
