    can't change the number on the phone

    i have the Nexus S

    i moved my old number from another company to this phone/ contract

    if i phone out its the right number

    if someone phones me its the right number

    but on the phone in the settings it still shows the old number anyone know how to change it ?

    i've talked to my contrat company ( Orange ) and have been told thay can not do it and i should contact the maker ( Samsung ) but i can't even register the Nexus with them on the UK web site because the Nexus is not listed

    thanks for your help in advance

    I was under the impression it got the number from the SIM card. When I swapped the SIM it updated automatically.

    What do you mean by "ported the number"? Did you call the previous service provider and have them transfer your phone number to Orange?

    Also, may I suggest using Google Voice? It's completely integrated with the Nexus S and you'll never need to worry about changing carriers or phone numbers again!
