7*8*8*8 = 3584.

The first number can't be 0...I used to make this mistake before GMATCLUB.

If that is not the right answer, I am not doing quant today .

All other digits other than thousand's digit can have eight (Except 3 and 6) values and thousand's can have seven (Except 0,3,6) values.
So ANS is
7 * 8 * 8 * 8 = 3584

Assume the 4 digit number is represented by abcd.

a - we can use 1,2,4,5,7,8,9 -> 7 numbers
b,c,d - 0,1,2,4,5,7,8,9 -> 8 numbers

Total number of ways = 7 * 8^3
