    When I select "About phone" from my settings, then select "Status" my phone number is shown as "Unknown". Can anyone please tell me how I can add my phone number?

    Go to Google, do any search. Scroll to bottom and click on location. Ensure it shows your location. Then problems should resolve. I had this issue with my phone because the system was adding an India prefix as these phones were made for the Indian market.

    OnePlus like many other phone manufacturers don't give the option to update your phone number on the sim. After porting from Vodafone to Airtel, even mine showed unknown on the new sim, I put my sim in my wife's vivo y83pro, went to settings>phone>caller ID updated the number, hit ok and moved it back to my "OnePlus 7". Now I can see the number in status.

    Have you tried to contact your ISP customer support and asked the same?

    This option is only provided by the ISP as far as I know.
