When you are signing up for a cell phone for the first time, or you are switching carriers and aren’t able to carry over an existing phone number, you are going to be getting a new number. Sometimes you might forget the number that was assigned to you, or the person who sold you the phone may have forgotten to inform you of the new number. Fortunately it is possible to find the number on your iPhone 5 by following a few short steps.
