Tips & tricks to get a VIP number or fancy phone number!

Are you looking forward to customizing your mobile number? Don’t worry. We’re here to help! Customizing a mobile number has become quite easy. All thanks to service providers! They’ve enabled online ways to book a (VIP and fancy) number and customize it as per your choice. In this section, we will help you understand what these numbers are and how to get a VIP mobile number of your choice with relative ease:

Understanding VIP phone numbers:

VIP number phones are exclusive numbers, which everyone, including ordinary people, can own. They are customized one-digital numbers. Yes, you read that correctly. For instance, a number like 9, 1, or 0 in a sequence can be known as a VIP prepaid number.

Understanding fancy phone numbers:

Fancy numbers are a tad different from VIP numbers. It is the one that is in sequence, even backward. For instance, it can look something like this: 987-4545-789. Certain telecom providers term fancy numbers as ‘Choose Your Own Number’ (CYN).

Both, VIP and fancy phone numbers are being used by everyone as they are quite easy to remember. While many people customize them with their birth year or lucky numbers, the rest of them may choose unique numbers. Either way, getting a VIP or fancy number has become a trend lately!

However, getting unique numbers is quite difficult. As these numbers are in sequence, they are created in a batch and published in the open market. Therefore, sellers pick most of them in the market rather than the actual customers, while the rest of them are auctioned in the market at higher prices. These VIP numbers can also be purchased through agencies or by directly contacting the service providers. However, this can cost you a tad extra. But hey, don’t worry! There is also an easy way out. That’s right!

You can get VIP SIMs online

The simplest way to purchase a VIP or fancy number is through online mediums. Yes, you read that correctly. There are many verified websites dedicated to selling or reselling these numbers. All you have to do is visit a website, choose the VIP number online of your choice from the several options, and proceed towards online payment.

After the transaction is complete, the seller will then send you a Unique Porting Code (UPC) for the chosen number along with an invoice. Once you receive the UPC, head straight to the service provider’s nearest centre and submit the code and documents to obtain the SIM card.
