    I have an Huawei Honor 5x, I can never remember my cell phone number as I don't give it out that often. Is there a way I can display it in the status bar? If not is there a fast way to find it?
    Thanks,
    Di

    Search for Owner Info in the settings.
    It displays any message across the lock screen including phone number.

    Or just open Contacts and edit the Me card.

    Thanks to everyone who replied.
    solaris9123 there is no owner info in the settings.
    chanchan05 I followed your suggestion and edited the Me card. I named it 1 Me so it will always show at the top of my contacts list.
    psionandy I don't have a text widget but I did create a note in notepad.
    You have all been very helpful/

    I think what @solaris9123 meant was that you can edit that field (Owner Info) and enter whatever you like into it. The text you enter here will be displayed on the lock screen as they said. I have my name and landline number displayed here so if I lose my phone there is a chance I'll get it back. No reason you can't have your cell number displayed here.

    @Pottero7 I installed minimalistic text from the play store... It's free although you can upgrade to a pro version.... In addition to putting my phone number on my home screen it also has some nice features like being able to show the name of whatever WiFi I'm connected to etc... I'm sure there's other ways of doing it... But this works for me

    Thanks badcatz. My phone though doesn't have that field (Owner Info). I was able to put my number on the lock screen, which only shows up when the phone sleeps. On my phone (Huawei Honor 5x) I did this by going to:
    "Settings",
    selecting thee "All" tab,
    selecting "Screen lock & passwords" from the list,
    selecting "lock screen signature",
    checking the "This will appear on the lock screen" field,
    and then entering my phone number. It also allows for more text if needed.

    This does only show up on the lock screen when the phone sleeps but combined with the other suggestions I received, I now have a number of ways to easily and quickly see my phone number.
    Thanks to all.

    I guess even though it's not called the same thing, it operates much in the same way. Anyway its working, right? :)
