I had a similar issue with my device when contacting my friends the number always came up as unknown or private. When this constantly happened I, in fact, called my carrier whom fixed the issue on my device so that my number no longer came up as unknown in the future.

Contact your carrier so that they will be able to reset your number and network settings so that you can be able to get your number recognized. When you go to have this fixed they stated that it was an issue with the network for the reasoning behind it happening.

How do I connect to o2/ how do I find my number?

I upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy S4 but the problem is the network is unavailable and it says my phone number is unknown on the settings. I looked at the back of my SIM card and there is a number but it is too long to be a phone number and it does not start with 07

This is a common problem for Samsung phone users which happens when you transfer your phone number from the old phone to the new device. Your number will be unrecognized or unknown then because mainly of the Android OS which registers the first number you use on your mobile phone. This however does not affect or limit your phone's functionality in any way. If in case you do not know your phone number, you can just check with the network operator. To troubleshoot this, you can just create a profile on your phone's contact list to include and record your number. Here is how the process goes:

  • On the "Home Screen", tap on "Apps".
  • Click on "Contacts".
  • Tap on the "ME" entry.
  • Click on the pencil icon that can be found on the top right corner of the screen.
  • Tap on the drop-down menu box right below "Phone" and choose "Mobile".
  • Key in your phone number in the given empty field right next to it.
  • Hit "Save" on the top right corner of the screen.


Now, you can easily check on your own phone number even when it's unrecognized on the settings.
