Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

This is me :o:confused: - 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 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.

Hi Sandy,

 

It is called superstition, I believe.

 

So you have not seen this post then ? http://forum.bidorbuy.co.za/showthread.php?t=3139

 

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 ...??? :worried:

I think admin forgot he has privileges that we dont have

 

JPBon, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

 

  1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
  2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

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:grin:

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:laugh:

if u have a company buying a easy number like 12345 can be good for your customers, whats r2000 for the convinience u provide to your customers when they need to contact u. u know our memory span is getting shorter by the day so its a good deal
