but when I got a cell phone for my husband, I asked if there were any numbers that ended in 6683. The guy said “Yes.”
His cell phone is 712-NOTE.
Rather interesting concept, especially when you take it to another level and think of all the ones you’d like to spell but are already taken. There’s a new area code opening up in our SoCal area, and thus all those previously unavailable vanity phone numbers will be up for grabs in the new area code.
Not really a big deal, but I like to place an ad with a catchy number. That way, if a friend of someone happens to read the ad and then talk to that friend later, they just might remember the number. (Maybe it’s a long shot, but I remembered a catchy phrase once and actually passed it on to someone else later in the day because the number spelled something.)
Now I KNOW I’m losing it . . . !
April 17th there’s a new area code opening in the L.A. area. I plan to get the number remote forwarded to an answering service that will take the calls.
