SIM Number SetterSIM Number Setter is a small Xposed module that invokes normally unused Android System code to set the "subscriber number" on the device's SIM card. This is the number displayed in the system settings, and used in apps such as Google Messages, as well as being available to third party apps with sufficient permissions.
The number is not always set by carriers (leaving "Unknown"), or can be lost or invalid after porting a number to a different SIM.
This small app allows you to fix it, permanently, using a rooted device with Xposed.
If you don't have a rooted device, or don't want to root your main device, you may wish to consider rooting an old device, and temporarily putting your SIM into that device, using this app, and then putting it back in your main device - the fixed number will travel with it
There are some older Xposed modules that do similar things to this, but they are all abandoned and use methods that will no longer work with changes to the platform since then. This module should keep working regardless as it does not store the number locally at all, instead immediately invoking the change - allowing the app to be uninstalled after use too.
Important NoticeChanging the SIM number is semi-permanent: the number change will survive reboots, uninstalling this app, even switching the SIM to a different device, but can be changed again at any time using this app.
SIM Number Setter does NOT:
- Change your actual phone number, no matter what you enter. You must contact your carrier if you wish to port your number or switch network.
- Unblock a network blocked SIM.
- Give you free data or calls.
- Change your IMEI.
