How to Find the Mobile Number Associated with Your Windows 8/8.1 Tablet

One of the companies we support has multiple Windows tablets they use out of office. One of the tablets was using to much data and the owner wanted to know which tablet was using all the data. I had all the mobile numbers for each tablet but I was faced with the question on how to tell which tablet was associated with each mobile number. I thought maybe I would need to install a third-party app to find what the number was but I was wrong. If your tablet is running Windows 8/8.1 you are in luck!

Here are step-by-step instructions on where to find your mobile number that is associated with your tablet or a laptop with a broadband card.

Step One: Swipe in from the right side of your screen and click Settings.Windows 8.1 Settings
