Adding a phone number to your iPhone is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of adding a phone number to your iPhone using the built-in settings.

Step 1: Accessing the Settings

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the “Settings” app on the home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gear icon. Tap on it to open the settings menu.

Step 2: Navigating to the Phone Settings

Once you are in the Settings menu, scroll down and look for the “Phone” option. It is usually located near the top of the menu, but if you have rearranged your settings, it may be in a different position. Tap on “Phone” to access the phone settings.

Step 3: Adding a New Phone Number

In the Phone settings, you will see various options related to your phone number and call settings. Look for “My Number” or “Change My Number” option and tap on it. This will allow you to add or edit your phone number.

Step 4: Entering Your Phone Number

A new window will appear with a text field where you can enter your phone number. Make sure to include the area code and any necessary prefixes or country codes. Once you have entered your phone number correctly, tap on “Save” or “Done” depending on your iPhone model.

Step 5: Verifying Your Phone Number

In some cases, after entering your phone number, you may receive a verification code via SMS or call. If prompted, enter the verification code to confirm that you are the owner of the added phone number.


  • If you are unable to locate the “Phone” option in the Settings menu, try using the search bar at the top of the settings screen. Simply type “Phone” and it should appear in the search results.
  • If you are using a dual SIM iPhone, you will have the option to add multiple phone numbers. Follow the same steps and select which SIM card you want to add the phone number to.

Adding a phone number to your iPhone is a useful feature that allows others to contact you directly. By following these simple steps, you can easily add your phone number to your iPhone and ensure that you never miss an important call or message.
