Also via geeksugar, here’s a cool website that enables one to alias their real phone number for up to a month: numbr.com. Basically, it assigns you a randomly generated (US) phone number, then you tell it your real number so it can forward calls to it for a duration you define. Once that duration comes to an end, the fake # no longer forwards calls to your real #.
I’m struggling with the use cases on this one for those of us who’s last name is not Bond or Soprano, but here’s one:
You meet a someone who seems “normal” and might want to sync up with them again later, but you aren’t quite sure because while mingling with them your freak-o-meter flickered once…or twice. Instead of giving them your real, permanent number, you give them a temporary # during what one may call a “friendly probationary period.”
Other suggested use cases?
