I drew a pretty strict line about my cell phone when I was a contractor. I freely gave it to my boss, teammates and HR, because it's my only phone, and they might need to contact me off hours. But because I wasn't given a desk phone, some other co-workers wanted my cell phone number. My position was that if the company wanted me to be available by phone, they should give me a desk phone. I was consistently available by email and IM, and that just had to be good enough.

Now I have a desk phone. People rarely call it.
