I got a new phone a few months ago and I only transferred 4 numbers to my new phone (mom, dad, close friend, SO). I've not needed anyone else's. I hate the phone anyways.

I have a little 2x3 address/phone book I keep in my purse. I usually keep peoples phone numbers in my phone, cause I never know if I might need them for help or something. Not in my SIM, because people will swipe your SIM and leave you without one. What I hate, is people who change their phone numbers every month or two. It bugs me. I am not a slave to my cell, and only take it along when leaving town.

I have the opposite philosophy, at least with Facebook. Many old friends have contacted me a year or two after I accepted them (or they accepted me) as a friend, and we got up to date on each other. Often, I won't call / text a person for a year or two, but it is often worthwhile when I do, for the same reasons. I don't see any point in contact list or Facebook "minimalism".

The more the merrier for me.

Sorry to hear that... I also have a contact in mine that I cannot bring myself to delete.

I keep my contacts to people who I really talk to often, as wading through hundreds of people like I see some do to find a number of someone you really talk to all the time is a pain.

I find facebook handy as sometimes I like writing instead of calling, especially internationally. Going through my friends list I could probably wipe out 2/3 of them, nothing personal, just we never stay in touch.

I don't have a lot of numbers in my phone simply because I dislike talking on the phone and avoid it as much as possible.

Now on FB, I had 7 pages of connections... until last week when I purged them down to just 3 pages.
