How to Find My Number on iPhone

Very often, people would ask for our phone numbers. But it’s not every time we’re able to tell our phone numbers from our heads. And this can result in some very uncomfortable scenes.

But thanks to the intelligent developers at Apple, iPhone users do not have to experience such, as the phone allows you to see your phone number, without storing it on it before.

And if knowing how to find your phone number is what brought you here, then you have come to the right place.

 In this article, we’d be discussing three ways you can find your phone number on the iPhone. And after discussing these three ways, we’d also discuss iPhones which support the first two methods discussed.

How to Find My Number on iPhone

Here is a list of methods to find your iPhone when you can’t find it.

Method 1

To find your phone number, one of the things you can do, is to check the phone number under your iPhone settings. And to do this, locate the setting app. When you locate your iPhone setting app, you’re expected to open it.

Upon opening up the settings app, you’d be presented a bunch of things, but you are only interested in one of them. And what you’re interested in, is the part called “Phone”. If you can’t see this on the settings interface, you should scroll down, to find it.

And once you find the part called “Phone”, open it up, to reveal another interface which would display your phone number. At the top of the Phone tab, you should see your phone number displayed in the international format.

Method 2

Another way of finding out your phone number involves using the Contacts app. And this method is also very simple. In other words, you should get it.

So to find out your phone number using this method, you’d first have to locate your Contacts app. After locating the app, the next thing you should do is to open it up.

Upon opening it up, you’d be presented an interface filled with a bunch of things, but what concerns you is the part called Contacts. This part is located at the bottom of the interface. And you are expected to click this part.

Once you click this part, you’d be presented with your contact list. But not only that, but you’d also be presented with your contact card, at the top of the interface.

So open up your contact card, and a bunch of information would be revealed, including your phone number.

Method 3

For people who’d love to learn another way of finding their phone number, we have another method for you. But you have to understand you’d need to be able to make calls with your phone, for this method to work. In other words, it might be needed for you to have airtime on your line. So if you have insufficient airtime on your phone, then you might have to recharge your line.

Once your line is ready to make calls, find someone around you who has a phone with them. And when you find someone, ask them for their phone number. After the number has been given to you, call the person’s phone. And once the person’s phone starts to ring, your phone number should be displayed on the person’s phone.

Supported iPhones

The first and second methods discussed above should work with all versions of the iPhone. But while we can’t certainly state if they would work for all versions of the iPhone, we’re very sure of the fact that they’d work with the following iPhones: iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 11, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 5.

However, as for the third method, we’re very sure it would work for all iPhones. But for its works, your line must be able to make calls.


The methods we have discussed are ways to find your number on an iPhone. The first and second methods would work on all the iPhones we listed, and they wouldn’t require you to recharging your line or anything like that. And as for the third method, it’s meant for people who can’t use the first and second methods.
