    Hey I was wondering if anyone knows of any free burner phone apps. This way I do not have to use my actual phone number?

    Not sure what you mean by "burner phone apps"

    I use TextFree. Permits me to select an alternate phone number and use it for texts, without revealing my genuine phone #.... which is my work cell. Its free for texting only, theres a fee to enable voice.

    I dont think its 1000% anonymous... not the same as buying a burner for cash. Downloaded the app via my Google Play account - assume it's same via ios appstore account. But I think it would deter the everyday casual sleuth from determining my real name & occupation.

    I have used Burner, its on the Apple app store. Works well, was recommended to me by an escort.

    Thanks a lot for the info. I was using Sideline but starting in Oct they say they are just going to do subscriptions. I look forward to trying TectFree and Burner.

    I use the "Burner" app for Android which you can find in Play Store. I think it is $48 a year (they may have changed rates recently). I think you can subscribe monthly or annually. You can change your phone number once a month if you pay annually - tailor it to whatever zip code you'll be travelling in. You can use it either to text or to phone. When someone calls it rings on your phone just like your regular phone. Support is okay - it takes about half a day for them to reply to your questions - but they told me that they are a very small company in L.A with limited staff. I'm very pleased with it.

    Burner's worked great for me for a few years now.

    I'm using Hush for an art project right now, and it seems fine, but the interface is less appealing to me.

    +1 for the burner app, I use on my iPhone. You can enable finger touch lock on it too, so if you pass your phone around and the burner app isn’t accessible to others (but then they ask “why” you have a locked app!!)

  9. Not directed at you... but no wonder the epidemic levels of flakiness by potential clients who text the escort's ass off and never close the deal.
