How to Find Your Phone Number on Your BlackBerry

By Todd Bowerman

Switching cell providers or receiving a new smartphone from your place of employment sometimes demands that you learn an entirely new phone number. While you’ll likely commit the new number to memory over time, it can be helpful to know how to find it should you need to exchange contact information and end up drawing a blank. BlackBerry phones make it relatively simple to locate your number so that you can mark it down, save it or offer it to a new contact.

BlackBerry Z30

Step 1

Touch the “Phone” app to open the BlackBerry’s phone menu.

Step 2

Touch the small icon with a phone and two arrows. This opens your call history and displays your placed and received calls.

Step 3

Swipe your finger down from anywhere on the screen. Your number will be revealed at the top of the screen. Swipe up to return to the call menu and hide your number.

BlackBerry Z10 and Q10

Step 1

Swipe from left to right to reveal an additional page of BlackBerry applications.

Step 2

Touch the “Settings” app. Choose the “About” option to display details about your BlackBerry phone.

Step 3

Tap “Category” and then touch “SIM Card.” The SIM Card details display includes your number.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you have a hard time remembering your own number, you can create a new contact for yourself in your BlackBerry address book. Once created, this entry gives you easy access to your number directly from the Contacts app.
  • Storing your number as a new contact also makes it easy to text reminders to yourself. A quick text from you to you is an easy way to save a short grocery list or a movie recommendation from a friend.
  • Calling your own cellular number from your BlackBerry smartphone connects you to your voice mail service and enables you to listen to voice messages.
  • Provide your phone number only to trusted friends and business contacts. If you're receiving unwanted calls after giving out your number, swipe down in the BlackBerry Phone app, touch the gear icon and select "Call Blocking" to find options for controlling incoming calls.
