8-digit phone numbers in Qatar!
On the 28th of July 2010, all of Qatar’s phone numbers will have an extra digit.
My phone number was “special” When I first got it in the mid 90s, it was a 6-digit phone number with no two digits alike, starting with 5 since that was the only number used for mobiles.
A few years ago, Q-Tel added a 7th digit, so my number started with 55. Now they add one more 5, so it will start with 555, just like the fake numbers in the movies.
Some people complained because it messed-up their numbers. This guy didn’t miss a thing, the QR10,000,000 guaranteed a great number.
