    Question [Question] How do you change "My Number" on the iPhone

    OK, bought a iPhone locked to o2 carrier, now unlocked and using another carrier...BUT, under Phone Settings and in Contacts...it has "My Number +44 7988 ..." and that isn't my number...Any way of changing this?

    I too would like to know this.....

    However I have 3 UK card in my phone working fine under 0.95 but still shows the originating O2 number to which the phone was activated.

    If I change the 3 UK card to an Orange card (which also works perfectly), My Number changes to the Orange number.... how weird is that!

    Any ideas on how to change My Number to my 3 number

    I'd like to know this to! I had a o2 sim in and now I have a 3 sim in but the number is wrong.

    I was hoping it might be something to do with the carrier bundle so I just created a custom one with some 3 UK settings but it did not update the number?

    Thanks for any input!
    Insert your sim card into any SonyEricsson phone(I used the K800i), register your phone number through phone settings in your sim card and save, reinsert the sim card in the iphone and reboot.
    You're done : now the phone number you saved in your sim card through the SonyEricsoon will show up in your iphone!

    Enjoy.

    Other ways I read about in this forum are way too much complicated and I am not sure at all if they would be still valid for FW 2.2 or 2.1!!! You can still search in this forum, but I am quite sure they are not valid for the new firmwares!!

    Your only solid and sure option is to find someone with a Sony Ericsson phone, and do the easy and safe trick I suggested : it does work 100% !!!

    Sorry but I do not have another alternative!

    PS: Try a phone shop that sells Sony Ericsson phones, and ask for a trial with your sim card to see how that phone works!!!

    restore your phone with the sim card you will be using in it. then jail break it and unlock. I think that should work. Im using t-mobile sim card right now and its snowing correct number.
