How to Find Your Phone Number on Android

In this post, we’ll see:

Let’s start.

How to Find Your Phone Number on Android

Note: I’m using Android 10 here.

Method #1

Call or text from your phone to another phone number on your other device.

Or ask your phone number with your friends or family members.

Method #2

Open Settings.

Tap About phone.

Beneath “Phone number,” you see your mobile number.

Note: You may see “Unknown” instead of your phone number. You can fix it using the steps in the next section.

Or you can open the “Messages” app.

Hit three vertical dots > Settings > Advanced.

You see your phone number beneath the “Phone number.”

Method #3

If you’ve already added the phone number that you forgot as the recovery phone number in your Gmail account, then you can find it with the below steps:

Open Settings.

Hit “Accounts.”

Tap the Google account, which has the mobile number you forgot as the recovery phone number.

Tap “Google Account.”

Navigate to “Personal info.”

In the “Contact info” section, you see your phone number.

Note: If you’ve added your phone number with the shopping sites such as Amazon or Flipkart, then you can find your mobile number within those accounts too.

Method #4

The following is the mobile network operator’s USSD code for finding own mobile number.

Use the one depending upon your mobile network operator.

  • BSNL – *555#
  • Airtel – *121*9#
  • Vodafone – *111*2#
  • Jio – Call 1299

Note

If you forget your phone number frequently, then add your phone number in the “Your info.” This one is an easy method to get it back.

Here are the steps:

Open the Contacts app.

Hit three vertical lines > Settings > Your info > Add phone number.

Enter your phone number in the “Phone” field.

Hit “Save.”
