    Hello,

    After Used and tested only Nokia WP8's (820/920) i now got a 8X and a 8S for Test and there i can't find my Phone Number.

    On the Nokias i go to Settings => Applications => Phone and see my Phone Number.

    Can anyone tell if/how i can view my Phone Number on a HTC WP8 Device?

    sincerely yours

    I'm not sure if it varies by provider but it took my Verizon 8X several days before my phone number appeared. Like you, when I first got the phone I was somewhat perplexed that it would not show my own phone number.

    Your Phone number (MSISDN) is usually actually stored on the SIM Card, if its present then it will be displayed within the Settings => Applications => Phone or the about screen. It generally depends on which SIM you have put in.

    Im assuming youre not on verizon, I dont know about CDMA

    On the settings->about screen, click more information, and you should see an 11-digit MDN number. Eg. 12345678910, which would be phone number 1-234-567-8910
