I have to have my cell phone with me 24/7 - it is part of my job requirement as a property manager so that the owners, residents or security can contact me in an emergency. As I was in line in the bank this morning, I was thinking about all the other numbers apart from owners and family and friends that I had on my phone. I have everything. I have my credit card number and all my bank account numbers, my daughter's and two sons bank account numbers. I have the account number for the electricity and water companies and the account number of my cable company. I was wondering what extra numbers do you store on your phones?

Well I'm glad that as a property manager of your residences, you are always on-call 24/7! I know some property managers, that if a problem arises outside of the usual 9am-5pm block, they don't answer, and just say call back tomorrow morning. Anyway, I keep the phone numbers to a taxi cab service, my phone provider's customer service number, the security to the building where I work, and other essentials. My bank's phone number, etc. But I don't keep account numbers in my phone - what if it gets stolen? I know my bank numbers by heart, and if I ever need another type of account number, whether it be for my cell phone, or whatever, I just pull my records that I have in my file cabinet at home.

Hi dxfanatic69, If I said to anyone that they should call back tomorrow then I wouldn't have a job. I I also have a part time job so need all my numbers. I don't put them under the name of a bank for example. I use a code to identify a bank account number or something. I wish that I could remmeber hem Thank you for your response.

Hi princesskitten, Thank you for responding. You are probably one of those people with a fantastic! I need to have my numbers with me so that I can pay bills by phone or do other transactions. Do you keep a diary or book with these important numbers written down?

weird this is a discussion because i ran out last night and left my cell in the car and my boyfriend took it to work today and ive been phoneless all day, its such a weird feeling to not be able to hear others voices when i want. as for numbers i would never store important ones because in a year period i have gone through about 6 phones now because they were stolen or broken.

I have never had a phone stolen. If they are broken, I just put in my old sim card which has all the numbers on it. I know how you feel though. The other night I left my phone at work and then my son had borrowed my car. I was so worried that some owner was trying to get hold of me. Then a friend who lives not too far awy came by my home about 9 p.m. as my daughter couldn't get hold of me and called her to check if I was o.k.! I no longer have a land line at home. Thanks you for reesponding

That sounds like an identity theft waiting to happen! Are you sure you should be carrying all that info around with you? I actually don't use a cell phone. We have a trac phone that we load with minutes when needed. It if basically for emergencies only. I only have a few numbers on it.

Do you know that as I was replying to you my mouse froze and then the computer screen shook as if it ws having a nervous breakdown! I lost my response. anyway, here I am again Rocket. Fortunately we don't have any cases as identity theft where I live so I am o.k for the moment. If we became that sophisticated then I would stop doing this. I carry my 'office' in my car and it really helps to get these jobs done whilst waiting in line somewhere. Thank yoku for your response rocket.
