How to Make Prank Calls Without Getting Caught?

Prank Calls

There are those who avoid doing prank calls because they fear that they might get caught so we have listed a few tips on how you can make those funny prank calls while still keeping your identity a secret:

Ditch the Caller ID

Almost all phones these days have a caller ID feature – that’s why it’s becoming even more difficult to hide your identity when making prank calls. Well, the good thing is that there’s a way to avoid the caller ID and that’s by dialing *67 before you make the call. This simple code will hide your phone number from making its grand appearance on the screen. Fair warning though, the code won’t serve its purpose when the police get involved, because they can easily bypass it to access your information. Also, the code won’t work if you plan on making the call via Google Voice or Skype. However, if you make prank calls responsibly, this won’t happen!

Prepaid Cell Phones

Prepaid cell phones sold at petrol stations are your best friend because you don’t need to input your personal information in order to use them. This doesn’t mean, however, that you’re off the hook because these phones have GPS and you can easily be traced if you’re making the calls from your own home. On the flipside, you might want to think twice before buying these phones if you’re a frequent prank caller because they can be a bit expensive. Again, prank responsibly!

Call From A Pay Phone

It’s also important to still be cautious when making funny prank calls so that the owner of the pay phone won’t get into trouble.

Are People Still Into Prank Calls?

Most people have indulged in prank calls at some point during their adolescent years. According to studies, prank call numbers are a common topic of discussion among children aged 11 – 15 to satisfy their social needs. These calls are made in groups most of the time so there’s an instant bonding element, with the caller at the center of attention. On a slightly different note, prank calling allows children to humiliate adults as a form of low-stakes rebellion since these people usually exercise authority over them.

Puns Intended


Telephone prank calls take on a wide variety of forms. The most popular ones are in the form of “catch questions”. Some examples are:

  • John and the house

Start by prank dialling a random number and when someone finally picks up, ask: “Good morning, is John inside the house?” When they say no, ask this question: “Where does he go then, inside the sink?”

  • The refrigerator pun

Call a random number and ask if their refrigerator is running. If they say yes, tell them “Well you better go catch it!”

  • What’s holding up the roof?

The script begins with “Hello, is Frank Walls there?” If they say no, ask another question: “How about Pete Walls? Is he there?” If they say no once again, ask the third question: “Are there Walls there?” When they say no one more time, ask the final question: “What’s holding up the roof, then?”

More often than not, these questions are dependent on puns. It brings about some sort of linguistic delight and pranksters realise how powerful words are, especially when used in a different context.
