    Cuz seriously, getting calls from people who are asking for people who probly used to have the number have been calling my mothers phone, and tonight, im getting some a**holes calling me at midnight nonstop (from three different numbers) for the past TEN MINUTES, even though i told them that they have the wrong number. (actually after i told them they had the wrong number, i started getting calls from multiple different numbers


    -_-

    so, the question at hand. How long does it take verizon to recycle numbers?

    I have had my number for three years and I STILL get some car dealership and some guy's grandma calling me once a month. I have told them both MULTIPLE times that they have the wrong number, but clearly...nobody cares.

    Same situation here , getting some interesting calls . Good thing they are at 1 AM when I'm awake and not early in the morning :) . Also getting a few text messages per week with some parties invitations , I was thinking I might just honour the invitations , they seem like nice people :p

    VERY quickly. I bought phones for the kids, and have spent quite alot of time calling numbers back and calling verizon. One number i called back was answered by a mom of a kid whose friend had the number my nephew got. She said that the kid switched phones not even a month ago. So I guess once the number is back in the pool, it could get recycled pretty quickly

    I've got my number about 10 years ago when Verizon was Airtouch (I'm on my 6th phone with them). I still get calls looking for someone else, though admitedly, not very often. I do know that having enough numbers has become a problem since we've been moving from one number per household to one number per person over the past few years.
