    Phone Number of Prepaid Data SIM

    I got one of those 3 prepaid international SIM cards which lasts for a month. Got a text today saying it will expire in a few days and I can go to a link to top it up if necessary. But the link asks for the phone number and I have NO CLUE what the number is! Any ideas how to find the phone number of a data sim (which will not text, tried that). Name:  1651140053590.jpg

    Has anyone tried topping one of these up?

    Do you have the credit card sized plastic holder that the SIM was mounted on? Might have the phone number printed on it.

    Also look at the activation messages - might be in one of them.

    IF you're on android, tap on any inbound SMS that you might have received on that SIM and go to the upper right menu and select view details. Should show you the phone number.

    This is what the view details of a random sms on my phone pulls up.

    Does dialing ##107# directly on your phone (w the SIM) work? Should work even if overseas I think. From 3hk site:

    Yeah. Mine doesn't. I think the Chinese spyware takes up too much room.
