Privacy protection password and Umi z

I took the sim out of my umi z and got asked for the privacy protection password
I had never set it so having trawled the net couldn't find an answer and assumed the phone was bricked after two shops looked pretty blank at me
then my partner was moaning that I had sent her chinese txts and after more searching i discovered that these texts were a security check and if you reply #mima# it gives you a code that unlocks the phone
happy days and I hope this helps other poor souls stuck with the same problem
now my question is as follows
the phone / google account clearly had an alternative phone number to send to however i am unaware of setting this and my question is does anyone know where the alternative number is stored.
I am assuming its in my google account but i cant seem to find where its set
