    Cellular phone number portability makes me, in a sense, the effective owner
    of my phone number. By accident, it just so happened that my number *****s
    something that could be considered very desirable by a whole lot of
    companies (I won't say what it *****s for reasons of privacy). If I had to
    guess, I'd say there are companies that would pay thousands for it.

    Is it possible for me to actually sell my phone number, and if so, how can I
    go about doing it?

    But the song is 867-5309 so he is selling a nebulous number. You must be
    singing it wrong.

    Hi,

    but as long as he's a current subscriber it's "his"....

    kinda sorta....

    so I can see a scenario where he might decide to drop that
    subscription for some compensation so that the "other" party could get
    it....
