Some Steps To Deal With My Number Unknown
In case that you have changed your SIM card and suddenly in the Settings, your number is unknown, it does not write your number automatically, and you cannot open it to write your number, below are some steps you can do:
- Try to call someone, make sure that your phone number comes up.
- Reboot your phone after swapping the SIMs.
- Don’t worry if your calls are going through, and your number is showing up. What you can do next is asking your provider for new SIM.
It can be a big problem if the “My Number” shows “Unknown,” which later blocks all the iMessages and SMS messages from working since they are not going through unless there is a Wi-Fi signal. You may try to use another SIM for the phone, but the number is still unknown. When you place the SIM on your other iPhone, it appears. The problem is definitely on the iPhone. To fix it, below are some steps you can do:
- Turn on Airplane mode.
- Turn off Airplane mode and go to Settings immediately, click the unknown number tap and enter your number manually. After that, you get a message from iMessage saying that you can get a charge, just say okay and done!
