Do You Ever Forget Your Own Phone Number?

Katherine Heigl recently told US Weekly that she didn't know her own phone number; "It's all in my iPhone!" she explained.

While a few years ago, I would have thought that was crazy, I have to admit that I actually don't know my work phone number or my house line. My excuse is the same as Katie's; I may not know them off the top of my head, but they're in my cell phone.

These days, I only know a handful of phone numbers by heart, like my main cell phone, my boyfriend's cell, and my mom's house line (because it was my phone number for years). I'm always trying to memorize more phone numbers for emergency situations, but I'll always think of my cell phone's contact list as a crutch. What about you?

I do know my phone but when I moved to SoCal for college and needed to call home, I had no idea what the number was. So sad!

I know mine but sometimes I mix it up with my home number (as in, my home where my parents live, I don't even have a home phone in my apt!). I also remember numbers that I used to call a lot in high school pre-cell phones... my high school boyfriend's home number, the number to the Domino's Pizza and the thai takeout place, most of my HS friends' numbers... it's pretty sad that I know all those but not my boyfriend's cell!It's on my iPod AND my phone and I figure I'm never without ONE of them, right? Oh the state of the world...

I know mine but it sometimes take a bit for me to remember it. I know my bf's, one of my sister's, and my house number cuz its been the same for 8 years. other than that I should learn my other sister's and brother's. lol

I make sure I remember the important ones (home, parents', bf's, work) including mine. Cellphones do get lost so I don't rely on them that much.

I'll admit that I've forgotten mine before. I just had my home number changed because I recently moved, and I forgot it two days ago.

Yes. It's very embarassing. Especially when you don't know how to check your number on your phone, so on top of not knowing your own number, you're now spending what feels like hours fumbling through the menus on your phone.

It is important to always know your Mother's phone number, she is indispensable.

The only time you'll ever hear me say I don't know or forgot something is because of my memory, not because I depend on technology to bring me to life everyday.

I know my home and cell number. But I never remember the numbers of my family's cells or my own work number. That's what the speed dial on your cell is for! lol

The only time I ever forgot my number (Transposed the numbers actually) is when I had just got it. Even then it was only for a few days.

I've only had one cell number :D It's just so easy to keep it the same when no one else has it anyway. Visa is the hardest one to remember.
