5 Tips for Using Prank Calling Apps

Plan a Surprise with Prank Calls

Although prank calls can be used to trick people, sometimes they can be used for planning big surprises as well. For example, if you are having a surprise birthday party for someone at your house or a restaurant, you can call the person whose birthday it is and make up some excuse to have them come over for the party. 

This type of thing can work for just about any type of surprise whether it's for an anniversary, bridal shower, baby shower or another reason. There are so many different ways that you can use a prank call to surprise someone. 

One thing you want to do is make sure you're not planning this kind of prank call too close together. For example, if your friends helped you to prank your husband for his birthday, the last thing you want to do is to use this kind of surprise prank call on them. Also, if your siblings helped you with pranking your parents for their anniversary, you want to wait a while until you do the same for them or other family members who may have been in on it. They could get suspicious and then the surprise won't work.

Make Your Prank Calls Harmless

When you are doing prank calls on your friends or family members, don't do it to make them upset. For example, you don't want to call up and tell them that you have been in an accident just as a prank.

Prank phone calls should be fun, harmless and it should make people laugh. Think
of them as new types of harmless jokes. There are a few pranks that you can pull on friends and family that are harmless but can get laughs.

One prank you can pull is having your phone make notification sounds. This can be done with people you know or it can be done in a crowd. After all, it's a harmless prank and it just shows how much we rely on technology.

Another popular prank that you can play on friends is to change autocorrects to something hilarious. For example, you could make the word "no" into lemon meringue pie.

These are just a couple of funny phone pranks to try.

The two pranks that are mentioned above are good places to start, and they don't need you to download any apps. But if you want to really want to take your pranking to the next level, you want to check out the different prank apps that exist. Whether you have an iPhone or Android, you can find the right app.

Which app you choose will depend on who you are planning to prank. After all, you don't want to use the same app to prank your mother as you would use to prank a friend or spouse.

Be Careful of Who You Prank

Now that you have some possible apps to download, you probably want to start compiling a list of people you want to surprise with your wacky pranks. But before you unleash your pranks, it's a good idea to think twice. For example, you want to think about the person's sense of humor before you prank them. There's a good chance that pranking your boss isn't a good idea unless your boss is very laid back and fun-loving.

Parents and grandparents are also maybe, maybe not targets. It depends on their sense of humor and their overall health. After all, you really don't want to prank someone with a heart condition, even if you keep it lighthearted. 

OK, so you probably have chiseled down your list of prankees now. So you probably have your friends, your spouse, and your siblings left on the list. Friends can be fun prank targets and so can a wife or husband. Like with anyone who you prank, make sure the phone prank is in good taste and is funny rather than mean.
