Do you get a choice of numbers?

When I bought a Coles Mobile SIM in Australia recently I was given a choice of ten phone numbers - one of them I could see was based on a mathematic sequence so I chose that one it being easier to remember than the others.

 

Will we have a choice on numbers on PlusNet Mobile? My SIM has been ordered but it hasn't arrived yet.

Fix

No - you get allocated a single number.

Thanks - my Tesco one is awkward at times - the first part of the number is 079xx and the second part 071xxx - so when giving it to people I say 079xx, 071... and they immediately think I'm starting again and say "I thought you said 079"... Not often but sometimes.

Simple solution ... when giving your number to someone, put your pauses in at a different point in the list of digits,

e.g. 079 <pause> xx0 <pause> 71xxx (or whatever) should avoid any confusion Wink

My plusnet one starts 07410, which nicely goes down (or up) the side of the telephone dial :-)
