I have the new Nexus 5 and wanted to change the phone registered to my account, but when I went into the store they clipped down my SIM card and now I don't have the full number to enter into the registration, what can I do?

Aye, I don't think there is a way to find the SIM number other than what's printed on it. Did the store give you the rest of the SIM card? They really should have, or otherwise activate it on your account. I'm afraid you might have no other option than to go back and get a new one... they really should give it to you for free since they made it basically unusable for you! :(

Hi, you dont need to change anything in your account to use the cut sim or phone. The system will at some point figure it out. If the sim in your phone is new and you have wifi download this in to your phone and run it. Youll see your sim number.

Amazing! Thank you! I don't "need" to register the phone change to the account then? Does anyone know if this qualifies for the 10% off monthly for bringing in an unlocked phone?

Your tab needs to not be in the negative to qualify for the 10% discount.
