I am considering getting rid of my landline phone and just using my cell phone.  However, I really don't want to open up my cell phone number to my contesting/sweeping as I only give it out to family.  Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas or have come across a similar scenario on how I can keep contesting/sweeping without a phone number or at least come up with a very cheap phone option just for contesting/sweeping?  I'm interested in hearing any and all input.  Thank you!

Sign up for Google Voice. You'll get a new phone number and it's free. Just make sure to have all of the calls from GoogleVoice forwarded to your regular cell phone. I use Google Voice solely for entering sweeps. So whenever I see my Google Voice number on my cell phone caller ID (which is almost never! lol) I know the call is sweepstakes related.

Good luck is a blessing from God..........

Wow, thank you!  I've heard of Google Voice before but it never even crossed my mind.  I appreciate the help!  You saved me some money too!  Happy winning to you!  Thank you again!

I realize this post was a year ago but I give out my cell number for all sweeps. I have never had a call from spam.  I don't have a land line either. I did get one call from sweeps but it was from a trip I won.
