@Lulume:  I don’t know anybody’s number anymore, except my Mom’s because we used to have the same exact number, except mine ended in 4 and hers ended in 3. But other than that not one person including FI.

I know my FI’s number and he knows mine… but I’m positive that the only reason for that is that they are almost identical except for two numbers, plus we share the same phone plan.  Sad to say, I wouldn’t know his number if not for that; I don’t know his work number by heart either.  There is simply no reason to manually dial numbers (and memorize them) anymore.

I know his number (and he mine) for emergencies.  I forced myself to memorize it, but then I also memorized my visa number, and exp in case I ever lose everything and need to buy something (I figure its better than nothing, ha).

I’d ask him to try and memorize yours for emergencies.

I have to think really hard, and usually dial it wrong if I’m not on my own phone. The area code throws me every time, and then it makes me question the rest!

I don’t know his. I just asked and he doesn’t know either my cell or our home number.

I know my families home numbers, and my mom, sister and best friends cell numbers. I think its because I’ve known them since college (way back in the day, when you had to know phone numbers because you only put so many people on speed dial and had to use phones that weren’t yours regularly). I don’t even know my dad’s, because I always paged him up until a couple years ago so there was no need.

Why do you have a house phone if you never use it? Seems like a waste of money. I haven’t had a land line since I lived in my college dorms 12 years ago.

I know my fiancé’s (mostly because I have to enter it in at Safeway for the bonus card thing). He knows most of mine but never quite gets the whole thing. What really bugs me sometimes is that he knows his ex wife’s number. I know it’s because that’s how he keeps in touch with his son and it is similar to his number but it still pisses me off sometimes when he can dial hers super quick but has to check with me on the last four digits of mine.

I know his and he knows mine. In fact, I know his parents’ house number, too. I can’t honestly say I depend on my cell phone contact list for any IMPORTANT number. It’s kinda weird that a lot of people do!

I don’t know his and he doesn’t know mine. We get close at guessing sometimes. We have the same area code which is not the area code of where we live. We both usually guess the first one or two numbers right and it goes downhill from there.

I have it saved though in my electronic address book if I ever need it. I have never had to dial it, it’s been saved in my phone since we met and that’s it. 

The only numbers I have memorized are friends who still have the same number as when we were young and didn’t have cell phones.

I know FI’s cell number and he knows mine.  I think my brain is a great place to back up important phone numbers since you never know when a phone is going to stop working for whatever reason.

@Lulume:  Yes! I  know my whole immediate family’s phone numbers (there are 7 people in my immediate family) plus I know half of their work numbers as well, and some of their spouses numbers. I know my SO’s, his parents, my 3 best friends, and remember random phone numbers from my past (and who they belonged to, but are no longer in service). I even remember my exes phone number! Once I know a number, I don’t ever forget it, even if I never use it again. 
My ex never knew my number and it TICKED me off so bad. Luckily, my SO now knows my number by heart 🙂

I think people are too relient on technology these days (coming from a 24 year old!). Whatever happened to the days of memory and a good old fashioned phone call, not a text?! 😛

technology has destroyed my memmory for phone numbers. When I was a kid I had all my friends numbers memorized. Now I don’t even know my own phone number, I have to look it up on my cell phone everytime I need to give it out.

FI and I share a Barnes and Nobel membership which is attached to his parent’s home phone so I know that one by heart 😛 When his parents set up their cell phone plan they kept the last 4 digits the same on all of the lines as their home phone and just changed the first 3 so I only had to learn the 3 digits after I got his parent’s memorized. I just asked him and all he knows on mine is the area code >.<, we’ve only been together for 7 years. FI’s mother finally caved and got my phone number saved to her phone a couple of months ago.

I know my mom’s cell number, since she’s had the same number for like 15 years. I used to know FH’s number, but he changed it. I still know the old number.
