I don't use cell phones and never have. But I do possess a Spark phone that has been sitting in a cupboard. Now I need to set it up for emergency use. It has a new SIM and is working correctly. But - please don't laugh - I don't have the number and can't figure out how to get it. I can ring out without any problem but can't ring to the phone. Can anyone tell me how to find the number in the phone? Thanks.

Send a txt to another phone. Get that person to tell you the number that the txt came from.

Hmmm. Not even close to my actual number.

 

 

It reads back A-party caller ID. But will drop the leading zero of course. Been around for a looooooong time and has never not worked.

Yep. Wholeheartedly agree.

 

This would have been a very weird question to raise in the 19th century!

Even I was able to work out the dropped 0. Spark phone, spark forum, perfect answer. 

 

I did think of the other solutions, but they all involve bothering someone else. I felt I ought to be able to get my own number from my own phone.

Just tested with my Vodafone mobile and it worked correctly.

Fortunately, it worked for me. I did test it.

I'm with MF - I get back a number with nothing in common with my (long-held) 021 number (Vodafone service)...
