Virgin Mobile set to close UAE auction on coveted phone numbers

Virgin Mobile has started an online scramble in the UAE for the best mobile numbers and plans in its new 0585 range.

The company announced an online auction of some of the most coveted numbers to become available in the UAE for years.

Virgin Mobile said its elite number plans have been set aside for the online auction including 0585 000 000, which is thought to be one of the most desirable mobile plans ever to be sold online in the UAE.

The auction runs until 8pm on Saturday. All numbers can be found on the Online Auction App which can be downloaded free of charge from the Google Play and Apple App Store.

Other Virgin Mobile 0585 numbers are available on a first-come-first-served basis on the Virgin Mobile App, the company added in a statement.

“Your mobile number is important, and we are proud of our great new 0585 number range and we are asking the UAE ‘What’s your Virgin Mobile number?’”, said Karim Benkirane, managing director at Virgin Mobile UAE.

“0585 000 000 has an obvious appeal but many people have a number that is special to them, or perhaps want to share number combinations with friends. We want to let our customers personalise their mobile experience by choosing for themselves from our range of one million available number combinations.”
