O.P. Roll Eyes  In a world filled with gadgets...
Something sparked my curiosity today, about the accessibility to communications in today's world, in particular phones. How many different phone numbers do you have today for people to get in contact to you?

Discuss!

Nobody calls me for personal reasons, except family randomly and friends from time to time. I have a landline, but no mobile phone (at least with voice service :P )

One landline, one mobile. However before, it was 2 landline as I would go from my father's house to my mother's house.

I canceled my last landline years ago (back in the analog modem days I had two).  I can't see why anyone would waste money on a landline for personal use today, unless they a)are forced to get one with DSL (phone service is not required to have DSL for any technical reason, but many companies insist on it); b)use phone so much they can't find an affordable mobile plan; or c)have household members without their own mobile phones. 

Otherwise, a phone that can stay with you wherever you go obviously makes more sense -- and is all you need.

most mobile companies will do an unlimited calls/txts plan (well at least in gb)

i guess most people will have a landland in order to have adsl (like myself), or are just old so don't like mobiles _

Most families tend to have landline numbers, just for the convenience of being able to contact anybody in the household at any given moment. Also, landline phones tend to be more reliable than mobile phones.

In Canada its alot harder than in the US or GB to get unlimited or extremely high usage cell phone plans for cheap. Especially when you have 4+ people in the house, and don't wanna wait until after 6 to spend hours on the phone.

Mobile only. We do have a landline but people in the pub were abusing it, so my Dad stopped outgoing calls.
