    I can't seem to find my phone number or serial number through the phone screen information?? I know that I can remove the battery to get to the serial number, but I shouldn't have to do that. Also, the instruction manual says to go to Phone information to get the number, but it isn't listed as they say. So how do I get this information??:thinking:

    1. On the home screen press the menu button and select system settings
    2. Scroll all the way to the bottom and select about phone
    3. Then select status
    4. Scroll down to see your phone number, ESN, MEID, serial # etc.

    Thanks! That's it! I knew it was there, and I'm pretty sure that I have accessed it before, but just couldn't find it right now. Sure is hidden!
    Thanks again!

    Phone number may come from what's stored in the SIM, but not all carrier SIMs do that.
