There is a header property that is sent from the service provider but usually only if you are on their white-list of safe sites. So you would need to contact the various operators and see how each needed to approve your site.

Additionally this header is not posted in HTTPS requests.

And there may be differences between manufacturers. In some cases it is listed as "x-up-subno"
and in other "X-NOKIA-MSISDN".

This shows many other "x-" headers you might find useful.
