If the phone number is considered something like an address, it seems that we should use at. If the phone number is equivalent to "the phone" or "the line", on would be more appropriate.
Which one is better?

CalifJim I always use at.CJ
So do I. I often hear "on", but I have no idea where that usage comes from.
Anonymous:It's a US versus British thing. Americans say "at", Brits say "on."
So you choose: Call me at 123-4567 or Call me on 123-4567.
Hope you get the calls you want!!
Anonymous:I am American so I say at, but I go to school in Germany where they learn British English so I often don't know what I should use!!
People are waiting to help.
