Service commands can be used to get information from the cell - for example the "own number" of the phone. As this is operator and cell dependent the result is not always reliable.

The 88 command can get the phone number in the cell.

The simplist way is:

  1. Input 88 in desktop
  2. Press dial key

The phone will display the service reply as shown below, if it is available:


Note:MSISDN is the abbreviation of Mobile Subscriber International ISDN/PSTN Number.

The Messages function has special item named Service Commands,user can use it getting the same result by

  1. Messages->Service Commands
  2. Input 88 in Textbox
  3. Press send or dial key

If the mobile device/cell does not support this kind of service,it returns UNKNOWN APPLICATION.
