Hi and welcome to the forums!


Basically you can't. It is not stored in the device. Either you remember it or you call the carrier with your

pin number and have to get your username reestablished.


If you do remember the username, put can't remember your password you can click on the password link and the reset password will be sent to your device.


FYI Here are some common methods used when creating a username:


People frequently use their username from their work logins or  first initial and last name together.

( jsmith23,  or Jsmith) Some people also use their email name or full email address (Jsmith_123 # email carrier.com.)


Hope you remember it!
