    The MSISDN can be stored on the SIM. It's often put there by
    the network provider as the first entry in the "own numbers"
    phonebook. But it does not need to be stored anywhere on the
    phone or SIM, and does not need to be correct if it is stored
    in the above manner.

    Some phones allow users to read, edit or delete these "own
    number" entries via the phonebook menu. And they can usually
    be read over a serial interface with "AT+CNUM" command.
    Likewise they can be deleted and added with "AT+CPBW" after
    first setting the phonebook to "own numbers" with the

    AT+CPBS="ON"

    command.

    The only absolutely reliable DIY method of establishing your
    MSISDN is to call someone and look at their calling number
    display, or SMS someone and look at the sender's address.
