Default Finding out the number for an O2 payg sim

I have an O2 payg sim for which I do not know the number. It has no credit
and I don't want to put any on it as I'm getting rid of the phone, so I
can't call anybody to find out. The top up line used to to tell you the
number you were dialling from but no longer does. Any ideas?

Thanks

Stu

What's the phone? Some (notably not Nokia) have an option to display the
SIM's phone number - all my Motorolas do.

(My V500 will even display the number on start-up.)

This happens when you have [a phone and] a SIM, no unlock code and you don't
know the number.

If you DO know the number then you can get the PUK code from O2's web site.

If you don't know the number or the unlock code then some advice re sex and
travel is appropriate...

If you're getting rid of the phone, why do you want to know?

I'm guessing you could put 5 on it, which is not too much to lose?

Does your phone not allow you to view your own number? I think all the ones
I've had allow you to view your own number. On my 6610i it is in Contacts
My Numbers. A T68i has it under Phone book Special numbers My numbers.
An OT756 has it under Call log My numbers.
