Some people have more money than sense and we can’t help but wonder this might be the case with the price tags attached to these unique UAE numbers.

If you happen to have a cool Dhs590,000, Dhs275,000 or Dhs200,000 to spend – dig deep behind your sofa, you might find some extra cash – then you could be the proud owner of an exclusive, VIP mobile phone number.

Nope, you’re not reading this incorrectly. For the price of a small studio flat or a sports car you could own a phone number that is considered far superior than your average 10 digits.

A new report by Khaleej Times has revealed just how much people will spend in the UAE in order to get VIP status.

The report revealed a list of 48 mobile phone numbers which are currently going to sale – some may have already been sold while you read this story. The list from the a local broker had a combined total value of Dhs2.9 million with the ‘cheapest’ number going for a mere Dhs1,900 and the most expensive going for a staggering Dhs590,000.

The numbers will be sold at a public auction held by telecommunications companies. The auction allows residents to bid on VIP mobile phone packages.

Ahmad Aburahima, senior vice president for Government Relations at du told Khaleej Times: “50 per cent of people who buy mobile numbers at du’s auctions are non-nationals.”
