Not really, here I can get a new (mobile) phone number by buying a
prepaid simcard for about 10 Euro (including 10 Euro credit). The
cheapest prepaid packages with phone are about 15 Euro (old model phone
that is being dumped). For some contacts that is precisely what I do:
give them a second number, if I get too many calls on it I don't want I
replace the simcard.
