    I've noticed that too. I think it's only found in Settings > Phone > My Number

    Settings > Contacts > My Info

    Select your entry from the Contacts app.

    Ok, so it can be found as a work around. No way of having it the easy way, as before?

    Thanks. Noticed it is not possible to copy it there?

    Isn’t the number baked in by the sim and carrier?

    Do not know what you mean. Here is a used case. Somebody is asking me to send my phone number. I am travelling a lot around the world and sometimes I am using sifferent sim cards. So i was able to go to contacts and mu number was at the very top of the screen under my contact. It was easy to copy and paste. Today with iOS 12 I do not know how to do it

    I have no clue what you are talking about. If I click on contacts and at the top is says my card. I click it and my phone number is right there for me to copy.

    In the past you would not need to go to vcard, the nimber was right there. One extra step

    Open Contacts. At the very top is YOUR name and under that "My Card". Tap on that and it opens YOUR CONTACT information. You can copy your phone number from there, or scroll down and select "Share Contact" to share via AirDrop, Messages, Mail or other methods defined to your share sheet.

    Open your contact card, select iPhone and copy. Not as convenient, but it works.

    Hopefully your finger has healed and it can handle it.

    This change is why I actually downgraded back to iOS 11 while I still had the chance a few weeks ago.

    When I swapped sim cards, it didn't show the phone number of the new sim card until about an hour later and it showed up as Siri found in settings or something like that. I had to tap on add to contact to get it to show the new sim card number.

    Has anyone found a workaround?

    I have to put new SIM cards into my phone from time to time, and I can’t seem to find a way to show the phone number of the SIM card in my phone anywhere.

    In the past the number was shown at the very top in contacts.

    Can the phone number of a SIM card be shown in settings somewhere?

    Thank you.

    When typing a message or email, and I type my cell number is, my cell number comes up as a keyboard shortcut. Also does it when I type my office number is . . . .

    Also the phone number is listed in settings under phone. It's right at the top just like it used to be at the top under contacts.

    Settings > Phone (which is basically a fairly logical place to have it)

    Add your phone #in brackets after your name in Contacts?

    That probably wouldn't be of much use if you are changing SIMs/lines at times.
