Yes. I had to go to Sprint to re-register it and the guy seemed pretty clueless on what happened.

Have you ever heard of this happening to someone before? I wasn't even touching my phone when it happened(so not my fault lol) and didn't even think it was a problem until a few minutes later when I tried to make a call.

The World didn't end or anything but it was an inconvenience because I had to go to the Sprint store to re-register. What would I need to re-register it myself next time? Can I do it on the phone following the instructions you gave me earlier? Anything else I would need?

I guess the worst part about the whole thing was that I missed a party because my friend couldn't get a hold of me. :( Lame



Oh and BTW, thank you very much for your help.

I've not heard of that happening before. On the 8330, the phone number field is programmed in manually by typing ## and a 6-digit MSL code. That takes you to a CDMA Edit screen and the phone number is typed into a 'Mobile Directory' field.

Was your device working fine, with your number showing before all this happened?

Yeah.

I hadn't had a single problem with it at all. What I thought was weird too was that I couldn't text or make calls but I did have internet access. I mean, who was getting charged for that? lol

Just a strange situation all around. I'm hoping it's a one time deal and I'm leaning towards that being the case but I guess I just want more people to reassure me. :p

Yeah. Don't go holdin' your breath.

It happens, it's usually a pretty easy fix, like re-registering, or sending service books.

I disagree. What SupremeMod described (a different phone number suddenly appearing in his 'My Number' field) is not something that is a common occurrence.
