The quickest way to find your phone number on Android or iPhone is to simply call someone with the phone who has caller ID enabled on their phone. Ask them to read the number back to you. Alternatively, you can find the phone number within the phone's settings. The location varies, depending on whether your phone is Android or iPhone.
JUMP TO KEY SECTIONS

Find your phone number on Android
If you’d rather not talk to your mother, or you’d prefer to go the Settings route, then let’s find out where that phone number is hiding. On Android, the location may vary slightly depending on what Android model you have. The following is based on the Pixel phone.
You can usually find the number by going to Settings > About phone. On some phones, it’s possible that you may have to continue tapping through to a Network folder. But somewhere in that About phone section is your phone number.
On some Android models, you can also find your phone number in the Contacts app. There should be an entry at the very top of your contacts list called My Info or My Profile. In there, you will find your phone number. However, this doesn’t appear on all Android models, including Pixel and Samsung Galaxy.
Find your phone number on iPhone
Here is how to find your phone number on an iPhone.
The settings are arguably the easiest way to find your iPhone phone number.
- Go to Settings > Phone.
- Scroll down to My Number.
The other iPhone method is to open the Contacts app. Or you can get there by opening the Phone app and tapping the Contacts tab at the bottom of the screen.
- At the top of the screen is My Card. Tap it.
- On the next screen, the number listed under mobile will always be the number of the SIM card in the phone.
