In this post you will see the steps to find your phone number on your Android phone.
You will also see how to block the phone number. Let’s start.
How to Find Your Phone Number on Android
Note: I use Android 10 here.
Call or text from your phone to another phone number on your other device.
Or ask your friends or family for your phone number.
Tap About phone.
Under the “Phone number” you will see your mobile phone number.
Note: You can see “Unknown” instead of your phone number. You can fix it using the steps in this post.
Or you can open the “Messages” app.
Click on the three vertical dots > Settings > Advanced.
You will see your phone number beneath the “Phone number.”
If you have already entered the phone number you forgot as the recovery phone number in your Gmail account, you can find it using the following steps:
Tap the Google account that has the mobile number you forgot as the recovery phone number.
Tap “Google Account.”
Navigate to “Personal info.”
In the “Contact info” section you will see your telephone number.
Note: If you have added your phone number to shopping sites such as Amazon or Flipkart, you can also find your phone number within these accounts.
Below you will find the USSD code of the mobile operator to find your own mobile number.
Use one depending on your mobile network operator.
- BSNL – *555#
- Airtel – *121*9#
- Jio – Call 1299
If you often forget your phone number, add your phone number to the “Your info.” This one is an easy way to get it back.
Here are the steps:
Open the Contacts app.
Click on the three vertical lines > Settings > Your info > Add phone number.
Enter your phone number in the “Phone” field.
How to Block a Phone Number on Android
Note: Blocking a number blocks calls and SMS from that number. Here, I use Android 10.
Open the Phone app.
Make sure you are on the “Recents” tab.
Tap the call from the number you want to block.
You will see the “Block” option. Tap it.
Note: If you do not see the “Block” option, press the “History” option. Click on the three vertical dots at the top right and then tap the “Block” option.
Press “Block” in the confirmation popup.
That’s it. From now on, you will not receive any calls or SMS from the phone number you have blocked.
Alternative ways to block numbers
Launch the Contacts app.
Find and hit the contact you want to block.
Tap the three vertical dots in the top right > Block numbers.
Uncheck “Report as spam” if you do not want to report the number(s) as spam. Click “Block.”
Launch the Messages app.
Press long the message of the number you want to block.
Click on the “Block” icon at the top right.
In the pop-up, deactivate “Report spam” if you do not want to report the number as spam. Click “OK.”
View Blocked Numbers
Open the Phone app.
Hit the three vertical dots in the upper right corner.
Tap “Settings” and the “Blocked numbers” option.
You can see the numbers you have blocked.
Note: If you wish, you can block a number from here (“Blocked numbers” screen). To do that, tap the “Add a Number” option. Enter the phone number you want to block. Press “Block.”
To Unblock a Blocked Number
Use the steps above to find the blocked number you want to unblock.
Click on the “X” symbol next to that number.
In the confirmation popup, tap “Unblock.”
