Your first telephone number.

There are many things I don't remember but I do recall the first telephone number for the phone that was installed when I was 7 years old in 1966.

Do you recall your first ever phone number?

    Can never remember phone numbers but do indeed remember our first phone in the early seventies, it was a trim phone which seemed very futuristic at the time   :D
    And our number was 64674

     No I don’t but i remember Whitehall 1212, which I’m sure was Scotland Yard and often repeated on Tv.

    i do remember mums coop number though from circa 1963, probably because I’d tag along to the front door when the milkman was paid. We used to have a lot of trades people calling too and grocers etc but we weren’t ever so posh. Memories. 🙂

    Yes I remember my first number in the family home 

    I also remember my current mobile number 

    The only other number I can remember is my mums 

    With mobiles you don't enter numbers so don't remember numbers but it does concern me if I lost my phone I wouldn't remember numbers

    We had all sorts of stuff delivered in the 60's milkman, coalman, pop man, a guy who sold all sorts of cleaning stuff, a massive wagon on a Sunday morning that sold green grocery, the pru man who collected every week, i'm sure i've missed a few.
    And our first number ended 3628 and it was a "party line" which could be interesting.

    I’m quite good with current numbers, I know my number, several family members, my debit and credit card numbers, expiry dates, PIN numbers all from memory. 

    Can’t often recall numbers though I don’t need to remember.

    My Mum still has our first landline number.  She kept it when moving house so I guess that's kind of cheating! 

    I also still have the same mobile number that I've had since 2003!

    The number I always remember is 4291...I'm sure some of you will know who's number that was!  :)
