    I was looking at the ##LGSERVICEMENU menu and lost in a bunch of menus I didn't understand i found two numbers listed for my phone
    Number One MDN 609.7**.**** My Real Number.
    Number Two MIN 608.314.96** The Other Number.

    The stars are real numbers I just don't want a bunch of prank calls.
    But can anyone explain what the MIN number is I called it and its not in service

    The MIN is the Mobile Identification Number. It's not really a phone number, but a number used by your provider to identify your phone. Your phone number is referred to as the MDN or Mobile Directory Number.
    ** TY D2A and sorry about the typo.

    MDN is actually Mobile Directory Number (The REAL Phone Number)

    MIN is the Mobile Identification Number (The special number used to identify your phone and its corresponding MDN on the network.)
