    Evening peeps

    So how long have you had your current mobile number for?

    I've had mine since i first got a phone which was about 12 years ago.

    I know alot of people swap with new contracts etc but ive always kept mine :)

    So any one kept there's for longer

    Dons please move if it's more suited to the mobiles forum.

    Had mine for about 4 yearsish now. Wouldn't dream of changing it! I know my Dads had the same mobile number since I was a nipper, so probs about 12+ years at least.

    8 years.

    All friends and previous employers have my current number.

    I won't ever change it unless I am forced to.

    about 20yrs, mine is one of the first set of mobile numbers issued

    I think the first numbers issued were 0831 for voda and 0850 for Cellnet

    had my first number for a few month (philips savvy phone if you remember it) and after that i've had the same one since. would never change it. My parents have had their same numbers for a very long time, since the dawn of 'modernday' mobiles, the type where the you didnt remove the sim card from the bigger creditr-card sized card! the whole lot got stuck in.

    [edit] 10 years for me then, longer for parents

    So is that the start of the numbers or did they only issue 4 digit ones?

    Since the start of january, one before that I'd had around 3 years. I'm not really bothered about the number as once I message my friends my new number they all have it =/
