For A Good Time

Jason Kaplan from Southampton, Pa., recently put the 867-5309 phone number (with Philadelphia area code 267) on eBay in hopes of helping pay for his medical school tuition.

Kaplan kicked off the auction July 25, listing the famed Tommy Tutone phone number along with the business JK Wireless Consulting Ltd., with a starting bid of $50. (Phone companies have rules against selling telephone numbers and people can get around that by selling their business along with the number.)

As of July 30, with 5 days left in the auction, the phone number’s bid was up to $5,300.
