Giving your phone number to every person you meet and every company is not a good idea. That is if you don’t want to get unsolicited and annoying calls all the time. That does not mean you can’t deal with people. Whether you are planning to sell products on Craigslist or date as many people as you possibly can, you are going to need temporary numbers. These 5 iPhone apps create disposable numbers for you:
RingMeMaybe: generates disposable U.S. phone numbers for any occasion. You can tag numbers to identify callers, receive phone calls with no limit, delete numbers at any time, and keep your numbers for more than 1 week.
Hushed: gives you a temporary number you can use to send and receive SMS, calls, and customized voice mail. As long as you have WiFi, you can make phone calls from anywhere in the world. You can keep your phone number for 7 days or even 365 days if you like.
Funbers: provides you with a secondary phone number to protect your main number. You can create phone numbers, block callers, and remove numbers at any time. You need a Funbars account to get started.
LineUp App: gives you a phone number for texting, calling, and forwarding. You also get a customizable voicemail. You can get a local line and more text messages when you need them.
Burner: you can use your Burner number like any regular number. It works for incoming/outgoing voice calls and incoming/outgoing SMS. Users may buy extra credits or sign up for a subscription.
