Dear MHN,

Personal identification information, such as your telephone number, is typically reported by your creditors when you apply for credit. It does not affect your creditworthiness or your credit scores. If you wish to update this information, you may do so by calling or writing to Experian using the contact information provided on your Experian credit report.  You may go online and delete an incorrect number, but we must assist you to add or change a number.

If you have not yet obtained a current copy of your Experian credit report, you may do so by going online to

Thanks for asking.
