Phone number associated with person number

How do I change it?

When I originally came to Sweden not knowing I was going to live here indefinitely, I got a pre-paid phone. Eventually as I settled down I got a person number, and now have a contract phone. When I get packages from abroad, the SMS arrive on my old phone, which I don't really want - I presume somehow (probably when I registered for my person number...) my old phone number was associated with my person number, and thats how posten know my number so I can pick up packages with the SMS.

Does anyone know how I can change this please? Having to keep my old phone number just for this is a bit tiresome, would be great to have them on the new phone number! Thanks!

Your phone number isn't connected with your personnummer. You would have to enter the SMS number yourself manually or its associated with the accounts that you're using to buy online. Change your account details instead.
