How long is the longest anyone has had the same phone number? Or anyone that you know?

I phoned my mom today, and got to thinking that that phone number has been unchanged since the day that her and my dad had their first phone installed. Perhaps, 45 years. It seems that phone numbers change all of the time now.So, excluding area codes... anyone know of any longer than my mom's?
Snickerdoodle:

Yes Willow, My Mommy and Daddy has had the same phone number for 53 years. That's since 1954.

Mindy-QnA-MVP:

Where have you BEEN????

Did you go through the dryer vortex???

Missed you and your fangs like crazy!!!

Snickerdoodle:

Yes, Mom pushed me into the dryer vortex and closed the door until I found all of our lost items that got sucked in.
I'm free once again from her clutches. LOL
Good to see you Mission Jesus.

6angster:

Yeah!!!!!Fang thats what you think....clutches huh!!! What a cockinbull story lolllllllll you little hypocrit(hee I just love to say that word)

Snickerdoodle:

Dangit Mom, you got this knack of finding me..don't get your feathers all ruffled. I found all the lost items.
You're still my favorite little bird.

Willow:

lolol! Did I step into a family scuffle here?? Tweets, awe...the dryer??? <speaking quietly> I do understand though, someone had to find those things, huh?? Who better than Fang?
That is a long time to have the same phone number!
Thanks for answering my friend! :-)

Willow:

tweets? A cockinbull story?? lol, hmm, seems to be a doginhorse story to me ;-)

Willow:

Hi Mission, how nice, having us old-timers on this answer :-D

6angster:

love it :)

The Mommy:

My phone number was my grandparents phone number my dad said it has been the same as long as he can remember and he is going to be 65 November 8th. We changed the listing name wise and kept the same phone #

Willow:

HI Bernice, how are you? Do I remember right, are you a Steeler's fan?
That is really neat, to have kept the same number for all of those years. It is a cool connection for people too. If someone is trying to find a family member that they have lost track of, there is still that same phone number to call. People know that someone on the other end of the phone line will be able to tell them! We run into that in our family. People who come back into the area, call my mom's number and she has an idea how they can get in touch with family members...
Thanks for your answer... :-)

The Mommy:

Yes I love my Steelers!

Mindy-QnA-MVP:

My son's b-day is the same day... : )

Blah:

I haven't had a phone in a long time but when I was married we had the same number for 7 years

Willow:

hi mk, lol, oh my! Do you need a hanky or a Kleen-ex... or perhaps a box of them!!! sorry, yuck, lol, c'mon, change your pic!!lol...
It does seem that people do not keep the same phone number as long as they used to...
Thanks for your answer... :-)

Mindy-QnA-MVP:

My Grandmother had the same phone number since 1945 and that changed when she died and my aunt bought the house.

My parents phone number is going on 40 years old.

Willow:

That is very neat Mission! I wonder if that will change with the cell phone generation? Fewer land lines, more cells... and it seems that cell numbers change more often than land line numbers do, even though you can port numbers now. Those youngsters just like change I reckon!
Thanks for your answer, good to see you! :-)

Iaintskaredofhardwork:

willow, nope, can't beat that but have had the same for 40 some years..nice to meet ya!

Willow:

HI SCHOOL BUS, nice to meet you too! 40 years! That is along time. I Have had the same number for 21 years now...
Hmm, where do the years go?
Thanks for your answer... :-)

Chris:

my moms number has been the same last four digits for over 50 years. about forty years ago they added the first three digits because of city growth.

Willow:

HI lowlevel, I cannot remember the number being any shorter than seven digits. That is interesting! Thanks for sharing that...
:-)

Rosedove:

we have had our same phone number since we moved here 42 years ago.

Willow:

HI norcha, how was the weather in Texas today? That is a long time to have the same phone number, huh? Do you ever wonder how many phone and address books it is written in? ;-)
Thanks for your answer... :-)

Rosedove:

Hi willow it was warm today but we did have a slight breeze but it is supposed to turn cold next week, I couldn't even begin to count how many that might be, since this also was my husband's business number when he had his general contractor business, then when he retired we turned it back into a residential number.

Marky:

Area codes were introduced in 1952 so the 7-digit phone number came along with that, Before that a live operater had to make long distance phone calls for you. I beleive there was still some delay before everybody could dial directly to an out of town number.
Yes, at one time there were 3 or 4 digit numbers on the local phone exchange. There were also party lines so several neighbors shared the same line.

Willow:

ha!! I do remember party lines... and my dad talking about the neighbors 'rubber-necking' and listening to all of our business on the phone! I did not know that about the live operator being necessary to make long distance calls!
Thank you Bestefar... :-)

Linda:

Never thought about that before. My mind just doesn't work that way having moved all my life. But I think my sister might break a reacord for the most different phone numbers! She does the same thing with email accounts, and that I can't understand at all! If she didn't call me fairly regularly I'd swear she was just trying to loose me!

Willow:

HI Linda, that is a neat turn on the question!
Thank you! :-)

Viv:

Well, I've had the same cell phone number for around 5 or 6 years. I think that's a pretty long time considering how often I have to change my friends numbers because they go to a different carrier. But, sounds like you are into cell phones and I'm guessing you probably have one. Why not get some free ringtones so you can put different soundsto different people. Go to www.cellrewards.com/blog and get some free stuff!

Willow:

Thank you... :-)
