Anyone else paranoid about relying on your mobile phone for 2FA?

(I don't know if this is the best place to ask this kind of question or not, feel free to point me in the right direction.)

I generally try to use the standard best-practices when it comes to online security: 2FA everywhere & unique (mostly gibberish) passwords all kept track of using a password manager (which is also set up with 2FA.)

That's great and all, but every time I need to log in to my banking or something, I can't help but feel a bit uneasy about just how much I'm relying on my phone, and I start to imagine any number of possible scenarios. What if my phone gets stolen? Lost or broken? What if I lose my number? What if I suddenly lose cell service? Any of things would cause me to be absolutely fucked.

Are these fears justified, and if so, how do you guys manage 2FA?
