I remember the ones which i use the most. There was a time that i would most after having called them on 2 or 3 occassions. However thanks to technology and the mobile phone, where the numbers get stored easily, it has made me depend on technology to retrieve this instead of using my memory.

I, like you, used to rememer each and every phone number that was tossed my way. Now, with programmable numbers in my cellphone, I quickly forget most. I do, however remember any that I feel I might need if I should misplace or lose my phone. I also keep a pen and paper list of my phone numbers at home for if and when a situation calls for it.

I used to remember many of my friends' phone numbers before I have my cellphone, as I do not have a habit to carry my phone book with me always, so I always remember their phone numbers, or perhaps I have better memory back in those days. After using cellphone, I do not try to remember any phone numbers, but just store all the numbers in my cellphone. Now, I think I only can remember the phone numbers of my family members.

Nope, I can't remember phone numbers that's really hard to remember especially when you have tons of friends to call. LOL! But if this person is much much more closer to you then you might gonna remember or memorize their phone numbers.

heck i can't even remember mine, since i have a cell and don't call myself, i have to look at the screen all the time. i think if cell phones didn't have that standard push your friends name and it calls them, then it would make you remember the numbers, ah progress, isn't it great, machines get smarter and we get a little slower.

About me, I am satisfied with the how many numbers I can remember. The number I call for about three times gets stored in my minds memory for so many days. Also if you want to increase your capacity, don't use the list to call from your cell phone. Try dialing the number to call, this will help to develop the good memory in remembering telephone numbers. I do this most of the time, so I remember the number of many number of friends and relatives.

I'm pretty good at remembering phone numbers. As it is I can still remember the first phone number my family had when I was little. And here I haven't used that number in 23 years. Here is a list of some people whose phone number I can remember easily: 1) my husband's cell phone number 2) my mom's cell phone number 3) my mom's land line phone number 4) my mother-in-law's phone number 5) my father's land line phone number. Even though I only call him once in a blue moon I still somehow remember it. 6) my own cell phone number. 7) my land line phone number. I mainly use it for Internet access (yep, I'm on dial-up ) so it's kind of amazing I remember this number at all. LOL

I can remember a dozen numbers or so including mine, of course. earlier i could remember around twenty but now age has caught up with me so the memory is not upto the mark. Before i got my cel phone i used to write all the phone numbers in a diary and i could remember many of them. Now i have stored most important and frequently used numbers in the phone whcih has made it possible for me to remember just a few and forget most of them.

I used to be able to remember many phone numbers. Then, I got a cell phone. Now I rely on my cell phone's phonebook/contact list to do all the remembering for me. The bad thing about that is now, if I don't have my cell phone, I can barely remember even the numbers of the people I call quite frequently. I was having problems with my cell phone one time and my greatest fear was that it was going to die before I could get in and rescue all my numbers out of there. I really should invest in a hardcopy phone book, now that i think about it.

I remember any number that I care to remember. I know most of the phone numbers that are in my phone. I have a really good memory when it comes to remembering things. But I have to want to rememberit or else I can not remember. My husband always teases me as I know all of his friends phone numbers, just in case we are out and he needs to call them then I know the number.

I can remember alot of numbers, but i choose to rely on other methods. Since i have a cell phone i just store numbers. Then using speed dial i never really pay attention to numbers anymore. I would be able to recite some of my numbers but not all of them.
