Thank you so much for replying and your suggestion.

 

However, on teh Galaxy S6, within call settings there's no option to choose sim or anything else.

I think there's no way to edit it using android nowadays without deep knowledge. 

I managed to edit mine using an old Blackberry Bold. Though you should be able to do it using any BBOS 7 phone.

I figured it out, am feel like an *****. Lol The device had the number listed as mine because an old sim card was inserted that was assigned that number . Remove sim card and number goes away.

Do you have a sim card inserted? The device will list the number assigned to the sim card its reading.

Thank you.
I could call out but wasn't receiving calls after I switched from Safe-link because I never had data from Safe-link.
The Truconnect SIM worked right away and I finally had Mobile Internet.
I didn't know the SIM came with it's own phone number.

Morning,

I was able to sucessfully accomplish this by inserting the "SIM" into iphone 6s, go to Settings > Phone > My Number.

 

Here you can set your phone number e.g [+61 430000000] and save it. Change the country code as required to match your country code.

 

Now if you insert the SIM in any android phone (I tested in Samsung Galaxy Note10+), you will be able to see your number.

 

Hope this will help someone out there or incase I forgot
