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!!
