App to edit SIM telephone number?

Hey all,

 

 

I have a ("nit-picky"/pointless) question - I don't think an application is going to do what I want it to do... But it never hurts to ask!

 

Under "SIM status" (Settings-->About phone-->Status-->SIM status), there is a field called "My phone number" which would normally display one's telephone number... Back in the day, a user could edit this by inserting their SIM into a computer-based reader, entering their telephone number, saving it to the SIM and then re-inserting this into their smartphone (at which point the entered telephone number would be displayed in "SIM status").

 

But is anyone aware of an application in the Google Play Store which could achieve the same thing?

@gregoryopera good question, I was also able to edit using an older SE device or Nokia.

 

Have you checked this one? I used it to edit SIM saved contacts in the past.

It'll edit the SIM contacts just fine, but it won't let me edit the separate "my number" bit... Thanks for the suggestion though!
