    Re: pros here, business phone vs cell phone only. what's your thoughts?

    Yes sudsmobile nailed it, the 1st call can make or break you as a potential choice in some customers eyes. The service I'm looking at will include a toll free number, which imho add's to making you look more like a real business. And for a 1 time fee you can pick from vanity numbers. Maybe it's just my poor luck, but I've had maybe 20 cell phone numbers since my 1st one. And 19 were near impossible to remember. I know technically most cell providers will let you pick from a list, but the companies I've had never seem to have anything decent. I don't like companies that have a number that's not easy to remember personally. While I hate that law firm commercial with the "call 800-888-8888" jingle it'll forever be stuck in my head.

    See that's one of the extra thing that'll draw some customers in. Unfortunately the selection when it comes to vanity numbers is pretty slim.

    You've got to think I got extremely lucky. The area code is my area code so the possible numbers could have only been 1000 (XXX-000-SUDS to XXX-999-SUDS). Eliminate the numbers that are not assigned and that number is probably somewhere around 600-700. So it is cool that I got it but lucky.
