    Give it time, Keeyth. It will automagically update itself within a day or so. It won't affect incoming or outgoing calls in any way - it just takes a day or two for the network to 'forget' the old number associated with the handset IMEI number iirc.

    I had this problem where it was showing a strange number in the phone identity. As I was using a very old Sim I got 3 to issue me a new Sim. It now displays 'Unknown'!
    Doesn't seem to cause problems with anything.
