Life can get boring sometimes, we all know that. Which is why it’s the small, silly things that we must enjoy and appreciate. Silly things like weird, funny phone numbers with weird, funny voicemails. Some meant to sugar the blow, others to prank the people we love (and hate), and others to hopefully end creepy stalker vibes. Looking for a number to create a serious reaction? We’ve got all the details; get ready to pick your thoughts about moon lamp!
But First, How Do These Numbers Exist?
Before divulging into the awesomeness that is prank hotline numbers, let’s take a moment to understand how they exist. You purchase a virtual number from a cloud-based phone solutions provider, like GlobalCallForwarding. Record and add your custom voicemail greeting in there and then pass the hotline number along.
Another way to do it is to use vanity numbers. These numbers use repetitions or letters to be memorable or spell out a word. Such numbers not only add a personal touch, but also create funny phone numbers that can have a lasting impression. A lot of businesses have vanity numbers that are actually 1800 toll free numbers such as:
- 1-800-GO-FEDEX for FedEx customer support
- 800-GIANT-MEN, a moving company
- 1-800-GOT-JUNK, a junk removal company
- 1-800-HURT-NOW, personal injury attorney network
- 800-DOG-POOP, a pooper scooper service
