How to change My Number under Phone settings

Hello guys, I have a unlocked Iphone 3g with an unsupported carrier.
Everything is working fine, now my question is.... Is there any way to change under Settings/Phone the My Number field? Right now its showing Unknown and I would like it to show my real phone number..
Thanks a lot in advance.

Settings/Phone/My Number and just enter it in the field provided.

if you are mentioning about calling people and it will show unknown..if that is the case you want to show your number on the receiving line, select settings / phone / show my caller id - from this select to ON. that should do it, hope all works out.

use a different phone I had this problem before the iphone update allowed you to change it. The number is stored on your sim.

How I got round this problem was to put my sim into a sony ericsson k800i which I had, it alows you to change the number on your sim save it then put it back into your iphone and the numders is now showing.

maybe other makes of phones will alow you to do this. If you haven't got one borrow one

To show your number all you have to do is clic on settings, then clic on phone on the top should show my number_____unknown. clic on it and type in your number.

another way to change the number is.
Go into settings-phone and if you cant chance the phone number go backward to
flymode and toggle it "on" and then "off" now back into phone settings.
Now you can chance it one time until you go out of the settings. Enjoy

+44 is a UK number. The +44 replaces the first 0 to show your number is of UK origin.

+44780xxxxxx and so on is the same as 0780xxxxxx .

I had the same problem with my iphone. Found a fix finally.

1) Put FaceTime = OFF
2) Switch off wifi.
3) Put cellular data = ON (edge or 3G)
4) Put FaceTime = ON
It might take about 5 minutes and ask for your apple ID password. Put it in and VIOLA! your phone number will appear in settings-> phone and your facetime and imessage will now activate on your number

glad this helps!

settings/mail contacts then swipe down to the contacts section where it says "my info" this lets you pick the contact which is you
