Easy answer: You don't have to carry your own phone. It's your own decision. Private calls shouldn't be done during work time.

It may be more practical to use one phone for both personal business and job related stuff, but it gives the PHBs of the world too much control. It's easy to misplace the work phone on Friday and have a free weekend.
Of course there is a risk of gaining the reputation as an unreliable flake. That could affect your promotion/pay raise chances. If you're in a typical corporate hell, that's no big deal.

Honestly: I insist on having my own private phone (and number). At home and on the weekend I want to be able to be not reachable and simply put the "work phone" away.
