There is no extent that a real prankster will fail to go to have a filled day including using services such as PrankDial which is a service that makes it easy for you to prank friends with calls that are designed on true situations. One of the most popular to offer such service, the platform claimed as at 2017, that it had already put through as much as 300 million calls.
Through the service, people have received calls accusing them of different things including soliciting for sex, defrauding the IRS, ordering for things they have no idea about and other smaller and larger things that have forced some to seek legal redress.
As you may have rightly guessed, the platform was started by a high school boy from a little town who armed with love for pranks and knowledge of the internet, decided to take it to take pranks to a whole new level. By 2012, PrankDial’s Android app had already been downloaded over 4 million times while the iPhone app had gotten more than 500,000 downloads.
How PrankDial Works
The way PrankDial works is pretty much straightforward. There are many prerecorded messages in various categories such as love, sexy, scam, neighbour, celebs, and much others. It is from these categories that you will get to select the prerecorded calls that you want to pass through.
Here are the steps to make the calls:
- The first thing you want to do is to go to PrankDial.com
- On the top-left side of the page, you will see the flag of the US. Click on it to select the language you want the call to be placed in. The countries available are the US, UK, Mexico, France, Germany, Spain, Canada, Ireland, Australia, and Italy.
- Calls based on where you are calling from will be made available for you to listen and select. You can select the situation you want as well, and then select the prank call you want to make.
- After previewing the prerecorded call and you are satisfied with it, Select the country code of the friend you want to prank and then do same with the origin of the call.
Although you can simply go to the site and place the prank calls you want, you are sure to get better features and functionality when you make use of the PrankDial app. The good thing about it is that there are apps for both Android and iPhone.
To download the Prank Call App for Android, go to Google Play Store and search for PrankDial. When the app appears, click on it and it will download and install.
The process of making prank calls from the app is pretty much the same as from the site, but it comes with more ease and convenience.
Downloading the app for your iPhone is also easy without any tweaking or tricks involved. Simply go to App Store and search for the program. Once you find it, download it and have it installed.
Another way to download the app is through the website itself. You will find an Android logo and that of Apple. Once you click on either, it will take you to the appropriate place to download the app from either Google Play or App Store.
One of the things that users have come to like about the platform is that it allows you to make prank calls even without having to have an account with them. However, if you are very much of a prankster, you may need to have an account and log in because it allows you to save reactions, comment, and rate calls, and even earn free tokens.
To log in, here are the steps to take:
- On the website or your app, click on “Account”
You will be given options to log in. You can select to log in with your Facebook, Email, or Phone Number.
- If you select either the phone number or email, a verification code will be sent to you. Put it in and your account will be created.
How To Get Free Token
Once you have registered, you will be given three coins free calls each day. However, if you want to make more calls, you will need to have Tokens.
These tokens come with other benefits such as being able to make international calls, making calls after 10 PM, having extra recording time at the end of your calls, contact book to save your numbers and prompt email support.
There are two ways that you can get Token; by either buying them or finding a way to get them for free. If you want to purchase the tokens here are the steps:
- Click on “Get Tokens”
- Select Buy Tokens
- Select the token you want; $5.99 for 20 Tokens, $9.99 for 40 Tokens $25.99 for 120 Tokens, and $31.99 for 160 Tokens
- If you have a promo code, put it in and the “Enter Promo Code” and click Redeem.
- On the other hand, if you don’t, select your “Payment method” either via Paypal or Credit Card and then submit the order.
Get Token for free
The easiest method to get free Tokens is on the PrankDial.
- Click on “Get Tokens”
- Select “Earn Tokens”
- You will be given various tasks to complete and after that, you will be credited with the number of Tokens you have earned.
Others have suggested that if you are using the app, all you have to do is to keep uninstalling the app once you have used your 3 free calls and then install it back. Although this will again give you three extra calls for the day, the stress involved may not be worth it.
Lastly, although it will not give you free Tokens, looking for free coupons and promo codes is a wise way to go because some can give you as much as 90% off the tokens you are buying. With this, you can go for the big Token and still end up paying very little.
