Galaxy S4 Mini GT-l9195: How can I change the phone number reported in the Device Status page.

The phone number reported in the Device Status page on my Galaxy S4 Mini GT-l9195 is the number originally assigned when I got my SIM card. Since then I have transferred my old number by obtaining a PAC from Vodafone. How can I register this new number in the phone's firmware ? (or wherever else it is stored)

Hi Mcmastere,

 

Thanks for posting Smiley Happy

 

Good question! This can only be done by factory resetting the phone.

 

If you have any content you want to back up on the phone, I would suggest downloading Samsung kies here.

 

You can then factory reset the phone by going into Settings > Back up and Reset > Factory data Reset.

 

Give this a go and let me know how you get on.


Thanks,


Mat

Hi Mat,

 

I decided that having the wrong phone number stored is less hassle than re-doing all my settings and re-loading content so have decided to not do the reset for now.

 

Thanks for the info, though.

 

Regards
