Default Cell Phone Number

Hey all,
Just wanted to get some opinions on giving out your cell number here.
Do people to it?
I have a few people I deal with regularly I was thinking of just giving it to instead of PMing back and forth.
Any opinions would be appreciated.
Thanks.

A few have mine, but honestly if its forum business keep it on the forums. Why because when I ask you to report a post showing the transaction details and/or conversation log you can do it really easily. Instead of you working on getting screen shots, uploading them to the web, and then linking me to them. Much easier to just click the report button.

I do 100% agree with that.
I was more asking to do the "negotiating on the phone", then follow up with a PM so its in writing and getting and agreed PM on both sides before completing any deal.

Also really wanted to see if you thought giving your number here was even a good idea, since you really dont know who your giving it to.

It all depends. As far as giving out your number, if your trading or buying you are giving them your address and generally speaking if I have one I can get the other. That being said a lot more people have my address than my phone number.

Flip side is if they have your number and they're at show and come across something you PC, your lkely to not get a PM in time. This is where I have given me number out to few guys and at times it works (the national especially)

I don't mind giving mine, especially for a high end transaction.

I don't have a problem doing it. It's certainly more convenient than PM's. I only give my number to established members that I've seen around before though.

the only time somebody has very given me a cell number during a deal, I ended up walking into a scam.

the only time i see people offering their cell numbers now is because they are trying to prove they aren't a scammer...


too much of a coincidence for me. Now, i'll definitely chat or text with people that I enjoy on here, but if it's somebody doing a deal I get wary.

Such a liar. Tyler seen I was from his home town, and the messages started rolling in. He all but asked me to give him my number. After our "engagement" he told me he had better luck on this site than Tender... Whatever that means. I have stayed in touch with him, but only from a distant. He is a prime example of why you don't give out your number.

I texted SEMPERFI a couple of times after making a deal, he kept me posted on shipping and never had any problems. I have dealt with a couple of people on here after contacting them on an item I saw on eBay and those transactions also went smoothly.

The only time I've done it is when I met the other member in person for a deal. I did it with a few people at the National last year, everything went smoothly.

I will/would only give my cell number to people that I would call friends.

Everything else I would do through PM's.

Another option is get a free Google Voice number and forward that to your phone.

I do it with the ballers on here

Text is great

eBay sellers sometimes post their cell in the item description
