    Hi all
    I have upgraded to a SGS4 from SGS2.
    In doing so ,I had to port my old number to my new phone.
    I did this.
    But in settings, more, about device, status.
    it shows the phone number as the one the new phone came with and not the number that I had ported to it
    Any ideas on how to correct this.:thinking:
    Thanks.

    First, make sure that when dialing your number that this phone indeed rings.
    Then, check to see if pushing the left lower menu button brings up any options for you to change the number. If all fails, check with your cellular provider. You might need a new SIM card or other remedy.

    Mine is the same but it doesn't seem to have had any effect at all so I have decided I don't really care.

    If you work out how to fix it though, please post as I would change it if I knew how.

    I had the same problem. I flashed cyanogenmod which has the option to edit the number on the sim card and then once changed flashed my rom of choice. Maybe a bit drastic though if you're not already into flashing roms. The other option is to put your sim in a blackberry or dare I say it an iphone which both have the option to change the number.

    Unfortunately it will only install on 3rd party ROMs.
