Thought this would be an interesting exercise, see who has the most phone numbers. A few guidelines:

- phone numbers must be "callable" voice / txt / data / video / fax
- phone numbers must be in your personal control, e.g. an office DDI is fine, but not a main number to a corporate organisation.
- no internal extensions
- No commercial batches of numbers, e.g. a large batch of DDI's do not count
- Includes devices, e.g. you may have a mobile device monitoring your holiday home; but a large batch of telemetry devices would not be counted.
- must be an actual number, so no Skype names, or SIP URL's

So here's my list:

Vodafone
- main mobile
- Car phone
- 0800
- faxmail
- fax number
- data number
- GSM gateway (pre pay)
- Vodem stick
2talk
- 028
- 028 faxmail
- 07 local
WxC
- 09 home business
- 09 personal
- faxmail
Truphone
- 001 US number

Total = 15





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

We need more :)
I'm yet to get a local zone number & of course I'll be checking out the new Telecom XT network we that launches.
