SIM Number Changer
================

App to change the number registered in SIM card. This uses Xposed framework (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1574401)

After you have installed Xposed framework, install this app, open it, insert your number and click the button to change it. After that enable the mod inside Xposed Installer (you probably have a notification to do it (like you can see in image), you can click it) and restart your phone, insert your PIN and it should be done, you can open the app to confirm.

This was made for Samsung Galaxy S3 and tested on it. It may work on others phones, but I can't be sure. I don't held any responsibility for any damage you do on your phone.

Source code: https://github.com/OXINARF/simnumberchanger
Download (v1.2): SIMNumberChanger-v1.2.apk

NOTE: This app doesn't change your actual number, it just changes the number registered in your SIM card, many operators don't put number in there, but some apps (usually security ones) use the number registered there. In About section in Definitions it also appears the number registered in SIM.

Wow! Are you sure that's legal?
And I don't really understand, it mean that if I call a friend after changing my number, he will see the fake number?

If yes, incredible work.

PS : Which apps use the number? A little list could be cool .

I think all it does is change the number that gets displayed in the about phone menu

As JDogg1329 said this just registeres a number in your SIM card (which appears in About section), but it doesn't change your real number (as stated in OP), so when you call a friend it still will display your real number. That, as to my knowledge, is impossible to do, because your network knows what number belongs to your SIM card.

I don't have a list of apps. I started working on this when I registered in Samsung Dive and it had my number empty. It also bothered me that it didn't appear in About section and there were people asking for this in Q&A forum. At first I couldn't do it, but now, as a personal project for making a Xposed mod, I've made it came to life and share it for anyone who wants it.

I guess its just to hide your real number from apps that has phone permissions and can see your number??
