One of the most reliable options when it comes to checking phone number is using the starter pack. Your phone number is printed on the pack.
Call or text someone
This is one of the oldest ways to check your phone number. It works with the help of a second phone whose number you already know.
Dial or send a text to the second phone number from your new number. You will see the new number on the second phone when it starts ringing. It is very simple but difficult to execute if you do not have airtime on your new number.
Use an app
This is also another viable option. Using your mobile network provider’s app detects your mobile number automatically. In most cases, this option works with only the “MyMTN app“. The MyMTN app detects the sim number automatically and uses it as a means to log you into the app.
With this, you do not need a username and password. However, for this to work, the sim must be the active sim in the phone where the app is installed.
