Your phone number might MEAN something

Posted on November 30, 2006

It's a sad state of affairs when people no longer have to remember telephone numbers. I remember a handful, but it's no longer a necessity with my cell phone. This becomes a problem when you lose your phone, however, or have some other phone malfunction. If you have a cell phone, I'm sure you're familiar with malfunctions, as they seem to happen just about every 48 minutes.

If storing the numbers in a different location (paper, online contact list, etc.) or memorizing them doesn't work for you, there is a solution: PhoneSpell. Just type in the numbers and determine what your phone number spells.

Remember, this is different than PhoneSmell, which rates the odor being emitted from that gadget that has been on more ears than the gym's selection of headphones.

Unfortunately, my number didn't come up with anything, mainly because it has a zero in it. Maybe I'll change my number, so I will be able to spell something with it. I'm proud to tell you that I have memorized my phone number, and the last time I checked, it smells pretty good.
