Phone Number Prefix Changed from 666 to 749

How would you react if your phone prefix number is 666? This is a problematic case of the residents of Reeve, Louisiana, USA. The number 666 is always associated with the antichrist. This was sort-of stated in Revelation 13:18 which says “This call for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is human number, its number is six hundred and sixty-six”. This number is somewhat related to mythological beast and it's part of someone's life. Imagine dialing the number 666 on the phone during midnight or any creepy day you consider, how would you feel. Well, the problem of the residents of Reeve ended after 40 years of request, their phone prefix number has been changed from 666 to 749.

All my life (well not our phone prefix number which is 032 for Cebu, Philippines), I believe that the number 666 is demonic, well not that demon from hell but demonic in the sense that it is connected to disaster or bad luck (I guess I used the word demonic right).

In mathematics, 6 to the power of 3 (216) is very different to the number 666 (don't ask Santino about this). If we try to add all the digits (6+6+6), the result is 24, a day that is associated with Christmas Eve. What else??? hmmm... nothing to say...
