I found in "Settings>About Device>Status>My phone number" as "Unknown" Anybody knows to set this to show the phone number of inserted SIM ?

This number is stored on the SIM card but some network operators don't program it in.  I transferred my number to Virgin when I first got my S3 but the number that appeared under Settings/About Device/Status/My phone number remained as the original number supplied on the Virgin SIM card.  I gather that the S3 cannot edit this number even with the latest XXEMB5 firmware, so the only solution is to put the SIM card in another phone which does have this facility.  I put mine in my 10 year old basic Samsung phone (SGH-R210S) using a micro-sim adaptor and was able to edit the number.  My new number now appears on the S3 and on Kies.  Hope this helps.
