View Full Version : How many phone numbers have your memorised?

I know my mobile, and my home, the emergency numbers for UK, USA and AUS, and 3 phone numbers from commercial jingles (not sure if they're still in service). If I had a few guesses I might be able to get my Dad's mobile and my local pizza place

Like.in my entire life of one's that I use right now? I probably know hundreds of phone mumbers. Well maybe one hundred.

2-3. But the numbers I memorized are either no longer in service, or numbers I don't dial anymore.

I know a lot of phone numbers that don't work any more as the place or person changed their number. I perpetually find myself being unable to remember their new ones.

I don't even know my office's number and Ihave to give that out. It's written on a sticky-note on my desk to be able to repeat over the phone. Ever since I could just add numbers to my phone, I've never had to remember anything anymore. I just have to hit their name and tada!

Not including any jingles (like J.G. Wentworth), I have six memorized.

I actually have to look in my phone to find my number when someone else asks for it.

I have a handful memorized. I used to be really good at memorizing dozens upon dozens of phone numbers, but cell phones made that obsolete. It's best to keep a backup list somewhere in case a lightening bolt hits you and you only survive because your cell phone absorbed the charge.

I have very little need to memorize telephone numbers outside of my own or my work line. As such I probably know like 2 - 3 off the cuff if you were to test me. However, if we expand that in to the short codes for my firms offices? Then you'd probably throw that to 30+ easily. I don't need to memorize telephone numbers so I don't. That being said, I have memorized my debit card number in full which is a 16 digit code, plus the expiry and CVC? (another 9 numbers) and the PIN? I could probably memorize a shit ton of numbers if I had to. I just don't feel the need to do it.

My parents, my two sisters, my three closest friends, work, and a couple of local delivery restaraunts.

Slightly more than average. Sucks when I need to call Satan and I forget his number so I have to say "Call Satan" into Siri and everyone judges me. :(

4 or 5 including my own. 2 of those are auto parts stores. :roll2

I was thinking I only know one or two telephone numbers, but then I remembered that I could quote you a whole host of Tax Office telephone numbers at the drop of a hat. :(

I can remember my old home phone number, and my Mum's old mobile number (neither of which are in use anymore). That's it.

I'm TERRIBLE at memorising numbers. I always ask Formy what my number is if someone needs to know it.

This is a running joke between myself and MissH. I have her mobile number memorised for emergencies but she has real trouble remembering mine. I think she's nearly got there now!

Other than that I know my old home number, my first girlfriend's old mobile (lots of dialling her from work) and my own.

Only two valid numbers though. Mine and MissH's.

Other than my own, I have the number of my mother, our Vons/Ralphs discount, and my best friend memorized.
