Dial 666-6666 for ... ?

It seems money can buy you anything apart from sense. An anonymous bidder paid $2,746,861 for the rights to use the Qatar mobile phone number 666-6666, a sum believed to have set a new world record.

Apart from the quite obscene sum of money, I wonder if the buyer considered:
- there will be zillions of crank calls to the number, since it is obviously someone wealthy and influential.
- the number loses something in translation when you bear in mind for all but the small population of Qatar, it will have to be preceded by an international dialling code. +974 666 6666 just isn't the same.
