Last week the telephone company in Qatar held a charity auction, with the winner bidding $2.75 million for the cell phone number 666-6666. This far outstripped the previous high which was when a Chinese man paid $508,115.74 for the phone number 888-8888. It’s unknown how much Hollywood paid to buy the number 555-5555 which is, of course, used in movies. And somehow everyone in every movie has. We can only hope that the Qatari man who owns the most expensive cell phone number in the world uses a $1 million cell phone and will watch Million Dollar Baby on it.
