Does anyone know any SIngapore phone number dealers/agents?

Post by sweethome999 » Thu, 16 Apr 2015 9:31 pm

Hi guys, I heard the community here is really helpful, and your help is what I currently need.

Being my line of business, I require a handphone number that is striking and memorable. Does anyone know any phone number dealers in Singapore?

Obviously there are the biddings available from Singtel and Starhub etc.. But I was looking for a dealer whom I could negotiate with.

Do you guys have any clue?

There are no phone number dealers. Phone shops get SIMS with pre-assigned numbers on them. The phone company shops offer you available numbers and then program when you buy.

Choose the number you want. Call it. If it's not a working number, go to Singtel/Starhub and request it.

If it is a working number, ask the person who answers to sell it to you.

Why do you need a broker? They would do the same thing. How much are you willing to pay?

When we set up our office here, we had a geomancer in to do a survey, part of which was picking the most auspicious telephone number for the main switchboard, from those available.

I see, but do they deal with auspicious mobile numbers?

They deal with numbers; I don't think it matters what they relate to as such.

I'm afraid he needs more than a geomancer. He needs some lessons in how to read English. :roll:

What we had reviewed, that office set-up, was 20 years ago now... so that's not going to help you. Maybe look in the Yellow Pages under Geomancers or Geomancy Services? Though I suspect such services aren't cheap.

But your original question was...

I'm not sure how a 'dealer' could provide a number for less than providers themselves do, they have to make business by adding margin... surely?
