    Default Strange Phone Number In Settings

    If I go into 'Settings' then 'Phone' the number displayed at the top as 'My Number' is NOT my number and not a number I recognize.

    Where is it getting this number from (SIM I presume) ?

    Can I change it ?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks but that doesn't work. I have only had 1 SIM in the phone (apart from the AT&T one).

    Have you ever ported your number from one carrier to your present carrier? That *may* be your MDN. Under normal circumstances your phone number and MDN are the same, but when you port your number, the new carrier must assign a MDN from a pool of numbers that they own so their network can properly route the call.

    I've got the same issue

    I used to have a number 07921 .... .... but it was changed by my service provider at my request

    they didnt issue a new sim card, just sent a text fews to the card and the number was changed

    Although it doesnt actually change it on the sim, so my itunes still shows the number that originally came with that SIM

    Best way round it is to ring your provider and request a replacement sim which will then show the right number.

    Although it;s not really a issue

    Yeah, ported from O2 to Orange so maybe thats the case. It's not a problem just a bit wierd.
