    Not sure why it would do that or if it matters but if you want it back turning your phone off taking the sim out turning it back on again, then turning it off and putting the sim back in should solve it.

    Network and GT-I9300 issues, will try my best to help.

    I found this link worked for me on my Vodafone Galaxy ace that showed the same issue.

    In my Samsung Galaxy S under Settings - Status - Phone number is says 'unknown': Why? - Android Enthusiasts
