How do I know my Claro number?

Operator Claro offers two free ways for its users to find out what their chip number is. One through the USSD code (protocol code with specific function used by telephony operators), and another via SMS. 

To discover Claro's telephone number through the USSD code, all you have to do is make a call to the number on your cell phone with the Claro chip *510#. Within a few seconds the number will be displayed on the screen.

Operator Tim also offers a free method of discovering the number using the USSD code. The process is exactly the same as that offered by Claro, with the difference only in the code, in Tim's case it is *846#.

Just make a call to that number using the cell phone that has the Tim chip, in seconds the operator will identify the protocol and return the phone number on the cell phone screen. 

How do I know my Vivo number?

At Vivo, it is possible to find out the cell phone number only through an SMS message, a free method that can be carried out in a matter of seconds by the user.

The number in question used to discover the Vivo chip number is 8300, but in the case of Vivo, you need to type in the message "number” so that the operator returns the request for the Chip number in the SMS. The message can be sent both on Android and iOS, the criterion is only that it has the Vivo chip. 

How do I know my Oi number?

Desde que o WhatsApp tenha sido criado usando o número cadastrado no Chip… É possível descobrir o seu próprio número por meio do mensageiro, mesmo sem usar o celular. Por exemplo, se o WhatsApp estiver conectado no computador, em um tablet, etc. ainda é possível descobrir o número, ao contrário dos métodos individuais das operadoras. 

Pelo smartphone, basta acessar as configurações do WhatsApp dentro do aplicativo, e clicar na foto de perfil para acessar o seu perfil, logo abaixo verá um campo escrito “telefone”, lá, o telefone cadastrado no WhatsApp será exibido. 

Pelo computador, basta iniciar uma nova conversa com você mesmo, clique em nova mensagem e digite  “meu” , clique no chat, em seguida dentro da conversa clique no perfil e o telefone será exibido abaixo do nome “Meu (Você)”. Esse método também funciona no celular, mas é o único funcional no WhatsApp web.
