Cell phone numbers for sale

“The New phone number rules that allow you to keep your phone number when you switch carriers has given rise to phone nascent number property rights. On E-bay you can bid on 867-5309 (made famous by Tommy Tutone’s Jenny I got your number). As I write this the bid is over $8000 dollars with seven days to go. What other numbers are famous or valuable? Will we see a land rush like the internet names?”

From Slashdot, thanks to Noah Yetter for the pointer. And when I checked, the bid for the number was up to $56,000. Here are some classified ads selling cell numbers. I’d like CTA-102 in my number, $50 to anyone who can deliver it.
