How do I get my phone number (MSISDN)?

When you first download the eSIM service and connect to a network you will be sent an SMS with your phone number in it. Unfortunately you cannot choose your number and we only supply UK phone numbers.

You can also get your phone number at any time by dialing the shortcode *133# from your phone in exactly the same way that you would dial a telephone number. However you must make sure that the eSIM plan is selected as the plan used to dial the number ( see the screenshot below ).

The UK numbers are randomly assigned from a pool which means that you cannot choose your number.

You will then receive a message on the screen with your phone number. You will also receive an SMS text message with the same information.
