Personally: Changing my cell phone number. Changing my address..for starters.

For those who are asking-thinking- You won well over $ 200 mil.

Have a Great rest of the week you fine people & be healthy while you at it.

    I wouldn't change my cell number but I would only answer calls from people I know.  And I would definitely move to a nice home in the country.  I really wouldn't try to hide my identity, I don't care if people know I won.  Like Nancy Regan once said... Just say no.

      I wouldn't work at my soul sucking job any longer. The day that I learn of my win is the same day that I'm quitting. Also I'll travel a lot. I go on a real vacation every few years. If I ever win I'll take a few vacations a year.

              A new cell phone number is a must for me. I presently get calls from area codes 213, 617 among others and l know absolutely no one there, never set foot in those States either, although I hear they beautiful.So call me shy- but the cell phone number goes . it's a fresh start all round GB.

                    l gather then that your present wardrobe leaves much to be desired MM.

I presently get calls from area codes 213, 617 among others and l know absolutely no one there, never set foot in those States either, although I hear they beautiful.So call me shy- but the cell phone number goes . it's a fresh start all round GB.

                          While those could be legitimate telemarketing calls - or shady ones - they could also be spoofed numbers.  I got a call yesterday from an Amarillo roofing company, but when I called the number (to tell them to leave me the hell alone) I got a "this number is no longer in service" recording.

                          Caller ID spoofing

                          I bought a call blocker unit during the last election cycle and love it and it's coming in handy for this one as well.

                          If I ever win the lottery, I think I'd only give out my cell phone # to friends, family and the financial institutions I use.  I'd buy a "burner" phone to use for everything else and if I started getting unwanted calls on it, I'd give it a pitch and get another.   I'd have a land line phone most likely, usually required for DSL/Uverse, security alarms, etc. and keep the ringer turned off and an answering machine hooked up to it.

                            Great Mike. Your response got me thinking about an app my wife has on her phone, it's called " WhitePages ID." She has been singing it's praises for quite some time now & l have been ignoring her on that front until your suggestion right now has me leaning towards installing it on my phone.  Us men hate getting directions until " the rubber band breaks"..so to speak. You have my thanks.
