My own contact number still showing temp number

    When I got my phone, I was given a temporary number, until my own number was ported across.

    Problem is that my temporary number still shows as my own number in my contacts. How do i get rid of that?

    I can't edit/delete it. I have tried un-linking all my numbers then re-linking them, but the issue remains. Tried rebooting, even tried removing and reseating the sim.

    I was able to add my own number, and set that as my main number, yet it still shows as the temp number in contacts, with no option to delete/edit

    Had a look around this site where the only similar thread i could find was for a Samsung Galaxy S2, which was unresolved.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I had this, only solution I found was a factory reset.

    No worries. There could be other ways, but I went through most of what you did and nothing worked.

    As heavensenttom said, I think a factory reset is the only way to go.

    It's probably not worth doing a reset unless you were planning on doing it, or if it really bugs you. ;)

    I really don't want to reset to be honest, so I'm trying to learn to live with it :D

    Thanks for the reply
