    I though I'd post this as I can't be the only person who's phone shows the wrong phone number in the settings? In my case I ported my old phone number to my new sim, but the phone (HTC Desire) always showed the old number.

    I've just spotted a free app on the Market which allows you to edit the phone number shown in your settings, it worked a treat on my Desire.

    Any idea from where does the phone get the sim no, because for me in phone information it also shows my name.. along with the phone number.... Might be I might have saved my name in contacts along with my no, but i wonder howcome it showed my full name,, even the sim card is not in my name

    Have you had any reply ?

    I get the same error message when trying to install it on a Samsung Galaxy 3 Apollo i5800 running Froyo version I5800XXJPF and rooted.

    The authors website says the app is "A small tool displays and settings my phone number,also can edit my number on the SIM. Notes: It *only* works on which uses android testkey signatures 3-party ROMs."

    What does this mean?
