    How many LCO here use a cell phone number exclusively as the only business contact number? Or have a business hard line forwarded to their cell when they are not in the office?

    I just use my cell for business and have a seperate phone for personal. It is nice shut off sundays and not be bothered.

    Cell only makes the most sense however the reception is very iffy here at the house and makes for lots of "can you hear me now"

    Thinking about getting a different carrier just for this reason. Glad I didn't renew my contract to get the free phones :laugh:

    Cell and home, But I tell customers call the cell cause i'm mainly in the truck and thats also my p/t office/ lunchroom, and other things. Quad cabs make nice storage areas!!

    We use a land line & foward to cell phone only during times when advertising. I never give the cell # to customers.

    I run a detail shop, it seems all my calls come in by means of my cell.
    Land line phone wouldn't help me, I'm always on the move Mobile phone or nothing..
    Also people (HATE) voice mail, so answer those calls if possible, or lose potential client...Joe

    Thats how I do it. I screen all calls at home so no, I don't want potential clients calling my home.
