Wrong phone number on my phone

Under Settings, About Phone, My Phone number, the phone number listed isn't my number. (Samsung J7 Android version 7.1.1, Model Number SM-J700P.)

Hey there, @shaffermw. Have you recently changed your number?

No, I brought my number over to Virgin Mobile on this phone and haven't changed it. I'm assuming the number displayed for the phone is the one I would have been assigned if I hadn't brought my phone number over.

Yes. It is possible. Are you using the number from Virgin mobile or the one you brought over right now?

I am having the same problem with my IPhone 6s, the number listed under the settings on my phone is not the same as my account number. How can I resolve this?

My phone number did update but when I try calling it doesn't ring but just goes straight to voicemail, help.
