    I need to know my sim card number and as its cut to fit my phone I don't have it. I went into Settings--> about and the ICCID isn't in there.
    I also went to settings--> network+ --> pressed the three dots operator info and the ICCID number is wrong.
    Is there an app I can download to find out this number? Thanks so much my Windows Central family.

    can't find it either. I'm on W10M though. None of the system apps in the store report it either. Maybe try on a phone with 8.1 or on an Android phone. If you don't have one, maybe a good friend or relative would offer to temporarily use their phone to get the ICCID.
    good luck

    edit: I just checked my wife's L640XL. She is still on 8.1 Update 2 and it does show the Sim card ID. Under About/More Info
    that is not available on W10M (yet). I must assume you are running W10M as well then.

    On 8.1 in Network+ under Operator Info, SIM Settings
    It will show MCC, MNC, IMSI, ICCID, SPN, PNN, GID1 and Profile Language

    PS, Operator Info in in the Hamburger Menu in Network+

    sorry, as you can see above, I've tried at least 5 of them in the store and none of them report the SIM#. I am wondering if the Nokia Care Suite can grab it from the phone, but I am rather pessimistic. There is no local phone store in your area you could bother?

    Haven't you tried this ??

    Field Medic. (Whatever you need, it will be in here).

    Open the app, tap device status and scroll down to "Provisioning Information".

    Yes there would be but they wouldn't be able to identify the sim number, I even went to the three support forums and they suggest Settings--> About but the sim number is wrong, this is so annoying lol. If I forgot my password in my mobile operator website I need the last 6 digits to reset my password, so stupid they don't set up a security question instead, when I run out of credit I sometimes use webtext and need the password.

    Its for phone ... just search the store for "Field Medic"

    Just making sure I have all the info. Where do I go to find provisioning? Great looking app, like launching a DOS session!

    Seems like you didn't read my post properly.
    The app was developed by MSFT.

    It doesn't work, still reads the wrong ICCID number. The number is only digits and the ICCID that's been given has letters in it, thanks for the app idea though.

    AFAIK ICC ID consists of numbers only.

    Sometimes it happens that on the SIM card is printed only the last 13 digits of ICC ID number.

    When I brought the 630 DS, I knew I had to put in a micro SIM. I was using the mini SIM before.
    The store guy told me that he could carefully cut the SIM into micro size. But I hesitated.
    Instead I went to my network provider's customer care office and requested for a micro SIM.
    They cancelled my mini SIM and gave me the micro SIM immediately.
    Services got activated within 20 minutes.

    I asked them about cutting the mini SIM.
    They told that if its not cut carefully, it may damage the contacts or the chip and the SIM might not work properly.

    If you could go to a customer care center for your network provider (if it exists), you could ask them to give you a new micro SIM.

    @Mhertel: how did you find the SIM ID from your provider? Did you have to call them or is it listed under your carrier account online?

    using field medic yes, mIccID is too long but it does contain your SIM ID/

    But you need to strip the first 6 digits and the extra hexadecimal at the end. and tadaa ;)

    it is fixed
