I'm curious - I have a 9 digit cellphone number 021 XXX XXX.

How much would you be willing to pay for a number like that? My understanding is that there arent many of these types of numbers available anymore.

(Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, but this isn't directly related to any carrier as such)

You can still pick these numbers up easily from Vodafone. Is it unique other then length?

If I ran a business then I might be willing to pay for a number that spells out a related word.

otherwise, nothing.

johnr: lots of 9 digits numbers available


thats odd. Because when we went to sign up we specfically asked for a 9 digit number (we didnt care what combination) and the people at the store said there were none avaliable?

Well that bugs me. Oh well, it's not my number, so its not a big issue.


Thanks for that John - FYI it was a digital mobile store, not an actual Vodafone store. In my experience(s), that is where most of my troubles have been, and I'm not just talking about this small hick-up.

I had a pool of numbers I would always allocate to customers:

My last was 021 4823* - I don't know about everyone in other stores, but I always used to make up a pool of numbers, kinda like a easy way of knowing your customers when you see them again :)

Most stores will let you "kinda" choose your numbers from a pool. I have had some pretty awesome ones in the past. But yeah the 9 digit numbers you will mostly see for people on accounts.
