    Mobile Device Number Vs Mobile Identification Number

    I was going through my phone settings and under Phone Info, I selected My Number.
    In the window it showed My Device Number which is correct, but also showed a
    Mobile Identification Number which is a different number. Only thing the same in the two numbers is the area code. I called the Mobile Identification Number and was connected to a working cell phone. Should the Mobile Device Number and Mobile Identification Number be the same? Should I be concerned that the Mobile Identification Number is a working cell phone number?

    Mobile Directory Number The actual phone number one would dial to reach a specific mobile phone. Prior to Wireless Number Portability, MDN was the same number as the MIN for many mobile phones. But now that MDN numbers can be ported (moved) to other carriers, MDN and MIN will be different for ported numbers.

    So I should have no concern that the two numbers are different and that the MIN is a working cell phone number.

    No you have nothing to worry about. That min is associated with your esn on the page plus network. The min is not really a phone number.
