All in order!! even going back to the beeper age i was pretty lucky,with 954-0010:laughing:

after regrouping the buisness in 2000, i landed 485-0002 (i had a choice of about 5 random #), and its served me well for 10 yrs, and just this year i switched carriers and am very thankfull its so easy to take the # to another carrier!!:thumbsup:

anyone else have great #s that they got buy chance,luck,or draw?

I tried for a number with wood or LRG or shop or something but nothing was available. They gave me a choice of three and I chose xxx-1333, pretty easy to remember.

735-1000

A porno line in the same area code is 735-7000, so it works well for those pesky solicitation calls, i.e. "you will need to call the main office, 735-7000".

Ol#2 is in the phone biz so I've always had a number that I wanted.

Failing that, My buddy has two sisters that work for a phone co. and they can make things happen.

I like easy numbers, 220-0001 as opposed to 'dial-me3' cutesie stuff. I'm old school and trying to figure out that a 'd' is a 2 is more effort than I want to put in. I also work in one of the states where people come to die, their memories are worse than mine. They want easy to remember.

A refrigerator magnet with your name on it will be there forever. Just a tip!

I started out focusing on painting years ago. 29paint which is 297-2468 Either way it is easy to remember. I just use the numbers now as we do almost everything. I agree with others that I hate decode letters to numbers when dialing. I guess I'm just slower than most.

The letter "D" is actually on the "3" key!
