    I think it is not possible with Nokia 6600. Basically it is only supported by OS 8.0 phones and none of them are currently sold on the market.

    The phone doesn't have to know or store its number anywhere (in the phone or on the SIM) for the phone to work (and most don't).

    The operator's network authenticates the phone/subscriber by the SIM card's serial number (IMSI) and any mapping of the IMSI to the phone number that is seen on the receiving end of the call or an SMS/MMS message is handled by the operator's network.

    The phone never sends the number (because - as I said - it doesn't really know what the number is).

    Hence, it is not easy to have a local API on the phone to retrieve the phone number (you'd have to have an end-to-end solution where you have permission to ask the network what the number is, and get the answer back).

    I don't know of any such calls in any Symbian version (or any operators that support such a service).

    Hi symbianyucca and other experts,

    >Basically it is only supported by OS 8.0 phones

    6630 is Symbian OS 8.0a and now available. Can I retrieve MSISDN from this phone?
    What's new in OS8.0?

    New extended ETel API should suport:

    - get IMEI
    - get IMSI
    - host phone number
    - signal strength
    - battery status
    - cell id
    - caller id
    and more

    Bye

    'should' = that was what Stenlik wished 5 years ago.
    However it is just not possible, the number is simply not present in the device.
