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.

Actually guys, I have found that if I give my work phone number for EVERYTHING then the number of telemarketers drops way down. Many of them use an autodial that hangs up when an answer machine is detected, and of course no one is at work at night...

Then when they ask for a work number I simply tell them it's the same. I rarely get an argument and have had great relief from the tele-sales crap. (I know, I know... they're just doing a job, but I finf it so annoying. So if I don't answer, then neither the person nor I have a problem! ;)
