    John's or Jeff's e-mail addresses

    1-I don't have John's or Jeff's e-mail addresses or phone numbers.
    2-I don't have John's or Jeff's e-mail address or phone number.


    I think even they each have one e-mail address and one phone number one still has to use '1'. Is that correct?

    They are not likely to share one email address and one phone number, but I think I'd still use #2.

    I'd probably say "I haven't got John or Jeff's email address or phone number".

    Thank you both very much.

    At first I thought having one 'apostrophe s' would imply that there is joint ownership? If we had 'and' instead of 'or' it would. In this case joint ownership is logically impossible because we have 'John or Jeff's'....
