Wrong number showing in phone

    I know there have been similar posts on this before, but I just can't seem to solve this problem. My Samsung Galaxy S II came with a new number which was replaced by my original number which I ported over with a PAC code.

    Now, when I go to Settings > About phone > Status > My phone number, the old number that came with the phone still shows. It's been like this for nearly a month now.

    I saw somewhere that the SIM could be put into a Blackberry and the number changed that way, so I borrowed my daughter's Bold and tried it. The Blackberry just kept asking for a MEP code. As I was fearful of doing something I may regret to my daughter's phone, I gave up.

    Took the phone to a T-Mobile store at the weekend and spoke to an assistant. The response was less than helpful - ''No idea mate, never seen that before. You could try removing the battery and rebooting, otherwise I haven't got a clue.'' Apple's Genius Bar is clearly missing a trick by not offering that one a job.

    So, I'm still no further forward. Does anyone know how this problem might be solved, or is this just an Android issue that I'm going to have to live with?
