How to Pull Off a Good Prank Phone Call

Updated on August 18, 2015

Prank Phone Calls

Practical jokes and can be funny or hurtful depending on how you go about doing it. I find the funniest practical jokes are prank phone calls. People really don't get hurt with prank phone calls, which is the key with any practical joke, otherwise, it's just not funny.

But, can you actually pull off a prank phone call and not get caught? I mean, yeah, it sounds simple right? But, what if you forget to *67 your phone number or what if you mess up the joke part during the phone call. It's just not funny if you, the prankster, can't even pull off the joke.

The key to making a prank phone call is to make it so convincing that the person thinks that the scenario is real.

Steps to Making a Prank Phone Call

  1. Choose what kind of prank phone call you'd like from the selection below.
  2. Decide who you're going to call and prank.
  3. If you're calling someone you know, make sure to disguise your voice.
  4. Either call from a number the person doesn't know or *67 your number.
  5. Pull off the prank call.

You may consider using a prank call windup service. In that case, you will:

  1. Have the type of prank phone call picked out, again from the selection below.
  2. Dial the number associated with the windup service.
  3. Follow the instructions on the phone.
  4. Once the person answers the phone, press the '#' button, and the windup will start. But, if it's someone else, ask for the appropriate person, and then press the '#' button.
  5. To listen into the call, go right ahead. They won't be able to hear you.
