Does my phone number including “four” bring me bad luck? [Copy link] 中文

I bought a phone number in Beijing several days ago. It’s surprising that they are differently priced depending on whether certain number is included. The one including “four” costs 40 yuan, and those without “four” is much higher. It’s said that “four” is unlucky number in China.

But I bought the cheapest one including “four” because I didn’t believe in that. However, misfortune came one after another since I got this phone number. My purse lost; my cell phone broke; my bike was stolen…

Well, I begin to rethink about the number “four”!!!

turn to "six"

I just can't stop associating my bad luck with my phone number. Maybe "six", the lucky number in China, can bring me good luck.:)

Magic number!

I came across an interesting article on magic number at an e-magzine Ni Hao from China. It's worth reading.
