    I thought this was kinda interesting... I wonder how they came up with that... lol

    This applies to last 7 digits of your number or if u have a 7 digits number like (9515151) If u have a 6 digits no even then the ans will be in 7 digits with an extra digit in the middle

    1) Key in the first three digits of your phone number into a calculator. (do not use your area code number)
    2) Multiply by 80
    3) Add one
    4) Multiply by 250
    5) Plus last four digits of your phone number
    6) Plus last four digits of your phone number again
    7) Minus 250
    8) Divide by 2
    Is it your phone number?

    no.

    2353465346
    I said last 7 digits in ur case its 3465346
    346*80=27680
    27680+1=27681
    27681*250=6920250
    6920250+5346+5346-250=6930692
    6930692/2=3465346
