    FOR SALE: 1-800-More-Coffee phone number

    I own the Toll-Free phone number that spells 1-800-More-Coffee and it is for sale outright for $2000 obo. No renting, no leases, just an outright sale. You can use it with your current phone company too.

    I know you probably already have a toll free number but how memorable is it and how is it related to your business?

    Call me if you have any questions,

    I recently read that many people are not happy with 1-800 numbers that spell out words, because it's annoying to have to change the letters into numbers on the phone's key pad. Even if the number is "memorable" you still have to convert the letters into numbers.

    Who uses the telephone to buy things anymore? That's so 90's. Now all that matters is having a quality product and a decent internet name. That phone number isn't worth $5. $2,000??? You have got to be kidding. Bwahahahahaaa!!!

    You'd be surprised how many people actually use the phone to order things. For example, QVC has tons of operators taking calls for orders, and they often resort to letting people know that the phone lines are backed up and that the fastest way to order is on-line or the QVC app. Some people prefer to talk to someone when making a decision or placing an order. I've been reading recently that there are an amazing number of households in this country that still do not have an internet connection. (seniors included).

    I can see how some people would want to talk to a customer service representative when ordering coffee beans, especially if they're not sure what they want.

    Although, in this case, I don't think a special 800 number is worth the $2,000.

    P.S. I just noticed that this post is #5,000 for me on this Coffee Forum

    My personal experience is that telephone orders are skewed to an older demographic ..............which probably reinforces the addage of a simple number to remember like 1-800-555-5555. Count me in as one of those people that are irritated to figure out what 1-800- get coffee is.


    That plus, is that number portable to all systems ? Who actually owns the number as if I recall, some are claimed (still) by the original issuer ?

    Congrats on reaching the 5,000 milestone. That's quite a feat. As for QVC I can honestly say I have never ordered a single thing off of QVC. I used to be one of those people who prefered to talk to someone. But then I realized that talking to someone to place an order is much more likely to result in an error in that order than if I do it online. And with an online order, there is a record of what you ordered whereas you are at the mercy of the person you spoke to. If they don't hear you correctly or become distracted, you're out of luck. As for the older demographic, I probably fall into that as I am 58. I refuse to order over the phone unless it's takeout from a local restaurant. But hey, that's just me.

    Hello TaylorSwift:

    Where are you located?

    I'm not sure what 0121 numbers are and at first I thought that maybe 0121 numbers are similar to the 1-800 numbers that are toll free here in the United States.

    Then I Googled it, and one of the responses said:

    "0121 numbers are not free to call on any UK network. However as they are local area code numbers that you may use any for remaining minutes on your landline or mobile tariff instead of paying any monetary charges."

    I have no clue what Wenumber is. Google was no help with that.

    You think $2k is a crazy price to pay for a number? In 2004 Ebay shut down an auction for the number 867-5309 due to objections from Verizon. The auction had reached $80,000. Also in 2009 Natrient LLC leased 800-867-5309 from 5309 Partners Ltd for $25 million as part of a radio campaign. Two grand doesn't sound that expensive now!

    Wow! It's been quite a number of years since I've thought about that song. That's a phone number that's definitely hard to forget.

    $25 million certainly beats $2,000. If someone wants something bad enough, they'll pay practically any price for it.
