    How to set the phone number so it shows up in Settings > About Phone > Phone Status

    Until yesterday, I was using a T-Mobile SIM card in my nexus, and the phone number showed up correctly under:
    Settings > About Phone > Phone Status


    Since then I have removed the SIM card and inserted an Indian card from Vodafone. When I check for the number now, it says:
    My Phone Number: Unknown


    Is this because I need to enter the phone number someplace, or is it an automatic selection based on information the phone is supposed to retrieve from the SIM card? If it's the latter, is there any way to get the phone to do so?

    Lastly, is this something that needs to be done, or is it only "window dressing", giving information about the phone for me to see? If that's the case, I'll ignore this, unless there's an easy way to correct it.
