How to Find Your Phone Number on Samsung Galaxy S3

Edited by Maria, Mac Evans Cerrillo, Eng, Alma

If you don’t memorize your own number, it is helpful to know where you can find or locate your number from your mobile. Whenever someone asks me what’s my number I always prefer to ask their number and then I will ring their phone because I don’t memorize my number and I always forget where and how to locate it on my mobile. Sometimes I even borrow a friend’s mobile and check my number from there, which can be very inconvenient. I also have a copy of my mobile in my computer’s notepad, and copy and paste whenever I need to fill in some forms online and or some paper forms. In this article we will help you learn how to find your number on your Samsung Galaxy S3, which is easier than borrowing someone else’s mobile and/or turning on your computer and navigating to find where you saved your number. After all, what if you are in a place where you don’t have your computer with you, and have no friend around with your number in their mobile. You need to find your number on your own if you cannot memorize it, so if it is a trouble for you to remember your number all the time, then here are some simple steps to help you easily locate it with your Samsung Galaxy S3 mobile.

EditOn my Galaxy S3, when I tap on states, it shows my first phone number about a year ago when I just bought the phone. How do I change that number?

  1. 1
    Perhaps the easiest non-tech way is, long before you install your new SIM/phone number, you should look at the back of the new SIM.

    Somewhere in the pack (the number is usually printed on the hard cardboard where the unused SIM is stuck), you will find the SIM number. Write it down in a trusted notebook or pad, then put it in your wallet or somewhere safe.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    Memorize the number again and again.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    Text the new telephone number to your spouse or best friend.

    Then lock that message so you cannot delete it.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    As you said, what is reflected on the Galaxy S3 is your old telephone number.

    Just follow the same steps: Settings > About Phone > Status. Then just edit into it your new telephone number.

  5. 5
    There is a code for the International Mobile Equipment Identity or IMEI :

    *#06#

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    The IMEI number of the Samsung Galaxy S3 can be found on the back side of the phone's battery.

    When your S3 is lost or stolen, you can use the IMEI number to deactivate your phone. If you do not want to open the phone to see the IMEI on the battery's backside, do the following steps:  

    1. On your home screen, tap the phone icon. Or another option is to still go to the home screen, then go to "Apps", then tap on "Phone".
    2. Tap on the "Keypad" tab.
    3. Encode/enter *#06#, then you press the call icon.
    4. The IMEI number of the S3 will then be displayed on the phone screen.
    5. If you had your S3 already blocked or deactivated, the IMEI of the said phone will be blacklisted.

Did you change your network provider? Some Network provider does not set it up, that is why some phone does not recognize the SIM card numbers.

But we will also try to research more about it and when we find a solution we will post and add it to this article. :)
