    telephone number

    Is this sentence correct?

    We will call you next Wednesday to discuss the report. What telephone number or cell number should we use to call you?

    Re: telephone number

    I would say: "What number should we call you on?"

    Re: telephone number

    A cell number (mobile number in BrE) is a telephone number. If you must differentiate between the two, use "landline number or cell number". However, as teechar said, it's simpler to just say "What number ...?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: telephone number

    And there is no need to differentiate here as the person will ring either.
