    buyer pays $257,400 for lucky mobile phone number 133-3333-3333

    A Beijing man has paid the equivalent of $257,400 Cdn for the ultimate in lucky cell phone numbers -133-3333-3333. The phone number was sold this week at an auction in the Chinese capital, newspapers reported Saturday.

    Chinese tradition considers three a lucky number and groups of threes even luckier. Though the number eight is the luckiest, all Chinese cell phone numbers begin with 13, making it impossible to make a number with all eights.

    The reports by the Beijing Times and Beijing Morning Post didn't identify the buyer. Phone calls to the number on Saturday weren't answered.

    lucky

    Was he lucky to spend all that on a phone number, or unlucky to have wasted that much money in the hopes of being lucky in the future.

    This is my opinion, and change is good.

    Well personally I think he was extremely unlucky to have his phoone number published in the news... he will have crank calls forever.
