Mobile Operators launch new series of mobile numbers starting with 8
Vodafone has become the 1st operator to roll out 8-series mobile numbers just a few days ago. The operator has launched its series 8051″ in the Bihar Telecom Circle, with the code being used on new Prepaid numbers for customers in the states of Bihar & Jharkhand.
Similarly, Reliance Communication is rolling out new number series 8055 in the Rest of Maharashtra (including Goa) circle. The company is rolling out these numbers in the Rest of Maharastra circle under the brand name of "BOSS". Reliance Communications is offering the BOSS series on both its pre-paid and post-paid platforms across its GSM network.
As part of the roll-out of '8055' Boss series, the company will offer customers in Maharastra and Goa opportunity to purchase their choice of number by sending an SMS.
Customers across Maharastra and Goa can purchase unique numbers from the BOSS series by sending an sms as "BOSS" followed by the remaining 6 digits of their choice to 567678. Depending on the availability; the selected number of choice will be blocked and a reference code will be provided to the customer. A new customer has to purchase a new Reliance Mobile GSM number along with Rs 80 National Calling Card (NCC) recharge and SMS back their reference number to activate their preferred choice of number. An existing Reliance GSM customer can also have a number in the BOSS series by following this process but without requiring to buy a new connection.Earth, Wind, Fire, Water, Consciousness.
