David,I guess you have a point there. If your cell phone is your main and only phone, then that's the number you'll have to provide to all of your "commerical" contacts, like credit card companies.This is turning into a puzzle, but it does bring up an idea. I could get the least expensive package available for my land-line ($20-$25/month: no caller ID, no voicemail, remove unlimited service, basically just pay for the number and a dial-tone) and then turn the ringer off. Give the land-line number to all of the credit card companies, etc. Give the cell phone number to everyone else. I guess that would be an effective way to block telemarketers, even though it'll cost $25/month. In my opinion, it's worth it. $1/day to avoid 3-4 telemarketers per night? DEAL!I did think of one more thing, though, that a land line is useful for that a cell phone isn't. 911 service can easily get your address if you call from a land line, not sure if the same holds true if calling 911 from a cell phone. So having the land-line with the ringer turned off might not be a bad idea, just in case.Thanks for your comments.
