A Cordova Plugin for Getting the Phone Number on Your Android Phone

Something that I put together while working on a project. There is one available. There is even a nice blog by the author.

My plugin is almost exactly the same as Simon’s. The only difference is that mine is about 3 years late. I did this because I wanted to learn about Cordova plugin development and also to use try out Android Studio.

You can get the details of the plugin here.

BTW the plugin will not work if the phone number is not available on your phone. Go to Settings | About device | Status | My phone number to see if the number is available before you use.

Till next time
