If you’re bored with your existing mobile phone number, then get ready for a change. From Sunday (July 17), the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) of Oman will be launching new mobile phone numbers beginning with “7” instead of the traditional “9”.
The numbers will be made available to subscribers shortly after release.
However, if you’re looking to stand out with a unique number, you’ll have to bid electronically on online auctions.
A statement released by the TRA read: “The allocation of these numbers will take place later by the licensees once the auction hosting scheme is prepared.”
