My phone was showing its own number as unknown under settings about phone. Also when looking at Sim card manager. Android 7.1.1 Galaxy note8
Settings > About phone
Settings > Connections> Sim card manager.
Called EE chose options for Technical Support. Spoke to adviser asked her to do a refresh network settings for my phone. After taking me through security she did this. It did cause the call to be dropped as she was warning me. Afterwards, my tel number did appear in settings once I had re-started my mobile. Ensure you reboot your phone!
Voila! All sorted my tel number appears instead of 'unknown'. No need to reply to this question as Ive answered it. Of course as others have suggested if you have an apple phone. Put the sim in that phone temporarily and use iOS menus to change the sim phone number then put it back into your android phone and hopefully that'll work too!
