    Default Provide me with your phone number

    Hi all,

    1. Please provide me your phone number.

    2. Please provide me with your phone number.

    Are the both sentences correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    The first one is correct, and you can also say "Please give me your phone number".

    I am not a teacher

    the structures are:

    To provide someone with something
    To provide something for (to) someone

    However, I would simply say: may/could/can I have your (phone) number?

    Caution: even if you ask the question correctly to girls, nothing to guarantee that you will have the number.
