Some people happily use any cell phone number while others want an especially easy to remember number or a number that stands out. If you have a unique cell phone number you may be able to sell the number to another individual. Technically, cell phone companies own the number that they dole out. However, you can transfer your contract to another person, assigning them both your number and cell phone plan.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Advertise the sale of your mobile number. Place an ad on a website such as Craigslist, put an ad in the paper or tape flyers to a local notice board. Explain the terms of the agreement. You agree to sell your number for a certain amount of money and the individual purchasing the number must take on your cell phone plan.

  2. 2

    Field calls and e-mails until you find a person who agrees to the terms of the sale.

  3. 3

    Call your cell phone service provider or walk in to the service provider's store. Tell a customer service provider that you wish to transfer your contract and give the provider the information of the individual who will take on your contract. If visiting a store, bring the person with you. This will save time.

  4. 4

    Fill out the paper work that your service provider gives you and ask your buyer to fill out his paper work.
