Is there a way, directly on the iPad, to find out which phone number is associated to the MicroSIM which it is using?

I can't find it in the menus, currently.

Is there an easy way to find it directly, like on an iPhone?


Settings → General → About → Celluar Data Number

  • Hm, this is probably the way to go, but it gives me "Unknown", for some reason. – Gnoupi Jul 3 '12 at 14:26

    @Gnoupi, I've had the same problem on my iPhone. I don't believe you can retrieve the phonenumber from your iPad then. To resolve it I had to put the SIM card in an old Sony-Ericsson phone and edit it myself. – Gerry Jul 3 '12 at 14:28
  • @Gnoupi Then you should try to retrieve it via iTunes using this Apple info. – gentmatt Jul 3 '12 at 14:30
  • @Gerry According to the video you can retrieve "phonenumbers" from your SIM using the iPad. But if this is a specific SIM for an iPad, the operator may have decided to not use a cellular data number because they don't need it for billing purposes. – gentmatt Jul 3 '12 at 14:32
  • @gentmatt - It's not showing up in iTunes either, so I guess it's coherent with the rest. Since this is based on a pre-paid card, it might be the reason why the provider doesn't show the number. Your solution is the one for most other cases, though. – Gnoupi Jul 3 '12 at 14:41

From the device, you can get this through Settings > Tap General > Tap About > Scroll to view the IMEI/ICCID/my Number.


dial #100# and the number will be shown. If it doesn't work the first time try again. It works on cell phones.

  • Ok, where do you want me to dial that? :) – Gnoupi Oct 18 '15 at 8:22

Click on mobile data,then click on sim applications,then click on “my services “then click on “my account”;then click on “show my number”....boom!……there you are.
