  • Cellphone Numbers Collectible?

    Hi All

    This is me :o - just saw a cellphone number going for R1000. Have they become collectable items? Are we going to see "vintage", "antique", "classic" numbers in the nearby future?

    Time for me to start bugging my family for all their old sims. Gonna collect me a trunk load-ful and become super rich!

    I am really confused? Could someone please explain?

    Regards
    Sandy

    Hi Sandy,

    It is called superstition, I believe.

      Hi Admin

      Superstition could be a lucrative biz.

      Anyone have any rabbits for sale? I will start making the crutches in the morning!:)

        Hi b&b ,

        Sorry to burst your bubble but the cards expire after a few months of no usage , so if you were to collect you would have to use the cards ( all 5000 of them ) every now and then ,,,,
        Btw. that number will then be allocated to the new contract or a new pre paid starter pack
        Warm regards

          I just bought a number for R2000.

          The reason is because it's a very easy number to remember and that is great for your clients. It's the same with domain names ect. There have been domain names worth millions just because of the simplicity and popularity.

            Well, I am not allowed to view this thread which you've posted, Andries. I get a BoB message telling me I do not have permission to view your thread as posted, and asking me if I am trying to post on someone else's account or some other equally darstardly deed! Or it tells me I am not allowed to post.

            The Beak is innocent, I tell you. All The Bird did was try to log onto your thread.

            What is happening ...???

                    Should we be jealous, JP?

                        Try now... Andries moved this to the freezer, so it was not viewable unless you have admin rights.

                          I think this seller is hoping for a miracle, The number has 786 'in the middle somewhere'. The desirable numbers have the normal 082/3/4 786 1234, hence they actually begin with 786.
                          Mine starts with 687 if anyones interested in buying it for R1,000,000.00 LOL

                            If anyone's interested, the MD of Vodacom supposedly has a number that goes something like this : 082 082 082*, you fill in the blank/s. LOL
