Name Your Number: Vanity Phone Numbers for UK Cell Phones

You can get vanity license plates for your car, but that's something that's a lot less visible than a phone number that you plaster over your business cards and websites and it shows up each and every time you send out a text message. So, good news people; there's a company in the UK that can help you get a vanity phone number!

 Name Your NumberName Your Number

Name Your Number partners up with the major cell phone carriers in the UK so that you can get your new phone setup with a great vanity number, or even switch over your existing phone number to one that's a whole lot more fun. This comes in particularly handy for all of those people that run small businesses right from their cell phones! I know I'd die for a W-R-I-T-E-S-O-U-R-C-I-N-G (if only it were the right number of digits)!

(UPDATE: This service no longer seems to be available.)

@Anonymous, Research in

@Anonymous, Research in Motion makes some smartphones with Qwerty keyboards, and and all you have to do on a Blackberry phone is hold down alt and enter the text and the phone will automatically convert. I cannot think of a major phone out there besides all of the blackberries that have a keyboard, as most new models such as the iPhone and phones running android have a touch screen dial pad with the numbers right on it.
