Kit Guide: finding your SIM card number - Android

To put your phone number on a different SIM card, or to activate a new SIM, you'll need the SIM number. It's written on the SIM itself, but you can get it from the settings too. Here's how.

Open the Settings and go to About > Status (might be 'Phone Identity'). In there you'll see some numbers like the 'IMEI' number. Your SIM number will show as either the 'IMSI' number, or the 'ICCID number'.
