My regular job pay's for manager's phones. we bring the bill in and they cut the check, they didn't want the contract, plus if i leave the company i want my phone number. I doubt they can write ot off though since they don't hold the contract.

Every one of my guys, excluding laborers, are given a phone. The all have a Verizon casio g'zone flip phone with push to talk (like nextel). Those phones are assigned, each of those guys have a particular phone and number so that I can reach them and they can reach each other. We then have a couple extra phones so that when one truck goes out to an install site with a foreman and three laborers, they can take an extra phone so that if one of them goes and runs an errand, they can take a phone while the foreman still has his. With the number of phones we use, it is cost effective to have a family share plan rather than a business plan. The guys know that if they use it personally to use them at night during off peek hours.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!

I have given a crew leader a phone as well. It worked out well due to it being GPS enabled and I could track his whereabouts during the workday.
