Are you wondering how to get a phone number on your Android device? Look no further!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step. Whether you’re setting up a new phone or need to find your existing phone number, we’ve got you covered.

Method 1: Finding Your Phone Number in Settings

If you’re unsure about your phone number or need to retrieve it from your Android device, here’s how:

  1. Open the Settings app on your Android device. You can usually find it in the app drawer or by swiping down and selecting the gear icon.

  2. Scroll down and tap on “About phone” or “About device”.

    This option may vary depending on your Android version and manufacturer.

  3. Look for “Status” or “Phone identity” in the settings menu and tap on it.

  4. You will find your phone number listed under “My phone number” or a similar heading. It may be displayed with additional details like country code or area code.


If you have a dual SIM device, make sure to select the correct SIM card before checking for your phone number. The steps mentioned above should work for most Android devices, but there might be slight variations depending on your specific model.

Method 2: Checking Your Phone Number Using a Code

If the previous method didn’t work for you, don’t worry! There’s another way to quickly retrieve your phone number using a simple code:

  1. Open the dialer app on your Android device. This is usually represented by an icon with a phone receiver.

  2. Type in the following code: *#06#

  3. Press the call button or the enter key on your device’s keyboard.

  4. You will see a pop-up window displaying your phone number along with other information like IMEI number. Your phone number will be listed as “My Phone Number” or something similar.


Some Android devices might have different codes to check for the phone number. In case *#06# doesn’t work, you can try searching online for specific codes for your device model.


Now you know how to get a phone number on Android! Whether you prefer checking it through settings or using a code, these methods should help you find your phone number easily.

Remember to double-check if you have a dual SIM device and select the correct SIM card before viewing your phone number. If you encounter any difficulties, consult your device’s user manual or contact customer support for further assistance.
