You cannot change the number. If you are using a GSM carrier, it is encoded on the SIM card. If you are using CDMA, it is programmed on the phone over the air.

In what country do you live? Who is your carrier?

On a Sprint device, you must purchase an MSL code in order to be able to change the phone number encoded in the CDMA part of the device.

If you call Sprint they'll walk you through re-programming the device. They'll tell you your MSL code as long as you're a current Sprint customer. Entering your phone number and the number for the data/sms center is all done on one screen. I believe it's called the CDMA Edit screen. Takes about 4 minutes.

But if you are not a Sprint customer, you need to buy the code.

Just do a Google search for it.
