    Default second phone number for business - useful or not?

    How many of you have set up a second phone number just for the business perhaps through a second SIM card?

    I have started to receive quite a good number of phone calls (especially from recruiters) since I have gone contracting... so far I can still manage that quite well
    However, I wonder if I should consider a second phone number for the future?
    Suggestions?

    If you can't make a decision on something this simple perhaps you need to go back to being a perm. You can then ask you manager to make all your decisions.

    If you are getting that many calls since you joined AW, its worth a second phone.

    If you need one then get one. If you don't don't.

    Yes I have a second number for business (I use a cheapo Nokia and PAYG SIM card), I am a company and almost every other company I know have a telephone number, I use sky to give me a "landline" number, which and then be forwarded to a mobile, either your main personal one or your completely separate one
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    What's that one just above the number 1?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
