To change your phone number associated with your email account, follow these steps on your Android device:

1. Open the Settings app on your device. You can usually find it by swiping down on the notification bar and tapping the gear icon, or by locating the Settings app in your app drawer.

2. In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Google” or “Google Settings”. This may vary depending on the version of Android you are using.

3. In the Google settings menu, tap on “Personal info”. This will open a list of your personal information associated with your Google account.

4. In the “Contact info” section, tap on “Phone”. This will display the phone numbers linked to your account.

5. Select the phone number that you want to make changes to. If you have multiple phone numbers associated with your account, choose the one you wish to modify.

6. Next to your selected phone number, you will see an option to delete it. Tap on this option to remove the phone number from your account.

7. After deleting the phone number, tap on the back arrow at the top left corner of the screen to go back to the previous menu.

8. Now, tap on “Security” from the main Google settings menu. This will open the security settings for your Google account.

9. In the security settings, you may need to scroll down to find the option for “Phone number”. Tap on this option to add a new phone number.

10. Follow the prompts to enter and verify your new phone number. This may involve receiving a verification code via SMS or a phone call.

11. Once you have successfully added and verified your new phone number, it will be associated with your email account.

It’s important to note that these instructions are specific to Android devices and may vary slightly depending on the version of Android you are using. If you encounter any difficulties or if the options mentioned above are not available on your device, you can also try accessing your Google account settings through a web browser on your computer.
