Our phones help us to keep in touch at all times, an option that previously did not exist. Nowadays it is much easier to locate us, so someone simply dials a series of numbers and by clicking on the “send” icon, you can know where we are at any time and place.

But there are times when we don't really know how we can visualize our number and the daily options are not exactly what we are looking for. If you don't know how to get your own number, here we are going to show you some options that could help you do it.


Methods to know what is the number of your cell phone

If you are looking for your phone number and you have run out of options, here we are going to teach you some simple but very useful ways to do it.

Option 1: from settings or configuration of your phone

Every cell phone always gives you the official ways to locate your phone number, although in all cases it does not always work. When you include a phone line on your smartphone, it is automatically linked in the phone settings and becomes part of the entire system, which is why this option may be right for you, but many times in its eagerness to protect the identity of its users, this option is hidden. Follow these instructions to see your phone number:

  1. Go to settings or system settings.
  2. Look for the icon about the phone.
  3. There, you will see all the data of your line, such as the IMEI and the serial number, the state of the phone is also included, which is where you are going to see the number. Tap on the phone status icon.
  4. Finally you will go to the phone number and there you will be able to see it.

This option is very simple as you see, but there are people who with the new updates in the phone number section tend to see that it says unknown and it cannot be seen, if this is your case, then we will try the second option.

Option 2: from Whatsapp or another messaging app

When you integrate a messaging app to your phone, it is automatically linked to your mobile number and is registered. In this way you can see what your number is and in the WhatsApp app you will see it quickly, follow these steps and you will see:

  1. Search the desktop for the characteristic green icon of WhatsApp and press it.
  2. At the top right there are 3 dots, right next to the search magnifying glass.
  3. When pressing on those 3 points you will see "settings", press on that icon.
  4. You will see that there are a series of options, but mainly you will see your photo, press on it and you will see the main data of your account and at the bottom you will see your phone number.

This way does not fail, it is the same for all mobiles that have this application, but if you want to try other options because you do not have WhatsApp, then we will see the following.

Option 3: find the control panel of your telephone operator

This option is super useful, since every telephony operator, once you enter the chip in your cell phone, opens the possibility of seeing certain characteristics through its control panel. For this, you must do the following:

  1. Search the desktop for the control panel of your telephone operator.
  2. Click on the icon and go to customer service and make the corresponding call in the call center.
  3. Provide secret information about your identity to the operator and if you meet the requirements, they will automatically give you the number of your mobile phone.

How to know the phone number of who is calling you?

Many times it is not just knowing our phone number, but we want to know the number of a person who is calling us. This happens because the person decides to hide their number and when you call, you will simply see what it says, unknown call without providing more information.

Do not worry if you want to know how to do it, since there are mobile applications that will help you discover that phone number. And we are going to show you how to install them and how to use them.
