Dingtone best spoof call apps for android

Spoof calls and fake calls are occasionally fun and even occasionally useful. Spoof calls make for great pranks around April Fool’s Day or during spooky seasons like Halloween. Additionally, fake call apps can give you a reason to get up and walk away from an embarrassing or awkward situation. Regardless of the reasons, we can help! Here are the best spoof call apps and fake call apps for Android.

Please note: we do not endorse spam calling, robocalling, or other activities of questionable legality. This list is for single-use pranks, for fun, and for people you know. Please read the FCC rules here before using any of these apps to make sure you're not breaking any laws. This list is for educational and entertainment purposes only.

The best spoof call and fake call apps for Android

Dingtone

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Dingtone is a call and texting app. It functions primarily as a second-line service or as a cheap phone call service for people with Wi-Fi. However, you can change your number fairly easily and you can earn free calls by watching ads. Thus, you can place the occasional fake phone call if you need to. This also functions well for free texting as long as you don’t mind watching the ads. It’s not a caller ID spoofer or anything like that. However, it’s quick and easy to sign up so you can still use it to have some fun.

Fake Me A Call

Price: Free / $10.99

This app lets you receive a fake phone call from a contact of your choice. Again, this is useful for getting out of awkward or uncomfortable situations or to just mess with your friends. The app lets you decide the number and photo of the fake caller. You can also schedule calls and even set a specified ringtone for your fake caller. We like this one because it has a lot of little additions that we quite like. For instance, it uses the proximity sensor to determine if the phone is near your face so it’ll turn the screen dark like your actual dialer app would do. The pro version is an absurd $10.99, but otherwise, this is one of the good spoof call apps.

Second Phone Number

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Second Phone Number is an excellent app for prank calls. It lets you get a second number. You can use that second number for both calls and texts. The app has a free trial but otherwise operates on a credits system. You buy credits, make calls, and then stop when you run out of credits. Thus, you only need to pay for it when you actually use it. You can also add more new numbers in case your friends catch on to the one you’re using. Everything here is fairly reasonable and worked fine in our testing.

Talkatone

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Talkatone is a service that provides phone numbers so you can make calls and texts. This is generally for people who want a second line, an anonymous line, or a primary line for folks who don’t want a cell phone plan. However, apps like this make for excellent spoof call apps. You can get a number nobody knows, spoof a call (either to yourself or someone else), and get away with it. Additionally, services like this provide texts as well, so you can text from a fake number if you want to go that route. The app operates on a credit system so you spend a little money, make some phone calls, and then spend more later if you want to.

textPlus

Price: Free with in-app purchases

textPlus is a lot like Dingtone. You sign up, get a real phone number, and use it to call and text people. It’s relatively easy to change your number if needed for prank calls and you get a certain amount of free calls and texts every month. You can earn more by watching ads or by subscribing to the service for a monthly fee. This is one of the biggest and most respected free call apps in the space and it worked fine in ours. Most of its features are for people who want an alternate phone line rather than a joke line to mess with people. However, you can find voice changer apps and other such things elsewhere if you want more stuff like that.
