Caller ID has been more and more popular the past few years. Today, almost all telephones have the caller ID function wherein they can tell who is calling even before answering. The name of the caller appears on the screen of the telephone as it is ringing. Nowadays, there are ways you can counter a caller ID. This is called spoofing. With spoofing, you can call anyone and you can control the name that appears on their caller IDs. This is a good trick to use if you are trying to surprise someone or if you just want to play a prank on your friends.
Here are the instructions on how you can change your caller ID free of charge:
Spoofing site. The first thing that you have to do is to look for a spoofing site. There are many different websites that offer the spoofing service but some of them will charge you for the calls. Some of the websites that you can go to are freecalleridspoofing.com, spooftel.com and telespoof.com. For these instructions, we are going to use the Telespoof service.
Set up your call. Go to the official website of Telespoof at www.telespoof.com. On the left side of the screen, you will see an option for “Free Call!” Click on that option and fill out the form that appears on the screen. Provide the necessary information, such as your telephone number, the number of the person who you want to make the call to and the number that you want to be displayed on their screen when you make the call. Take note that the name of the person registered to the number you provide on the third field (number you want to appear on the caller ID) will be displayed. When the information is complete, click on “Try TeleSpoof”.
Make the call. Your telephone will ring after a few seconds of clicking the “Try TeleSpoof” button. Answer the call. You will hear a recorded voice of someone saying that you have to push the “1” button to connect your call to the number that you provided. Press the “1” on your phone and your call will be connected. Wait for someone to answer.
These are the simple steps that you have to follow if you want to change your caller ID. There are other features of the TeleSpoof that you can use. Some of them are changing your voice to male or female or recording the conversations that you have when you make the call. You can hear the recorded calls when you log on to your account on the website.
Call spoofing is a useful tool, not only for pranksters. Professionals also use this type of service. Some examples of people who use call spoofing include private investigators, doctors and some professional businesses.
