I have always felt a need for a temporary number to talk or text to someone, whom I don't want to give my real number but obtaining a non listed number is very very difficult. You may also have felt a similar need. Now the App called Burner will solve your problem and give you a temporary disposable number which you can use as much as you want and than simply dispose off. Sounds very fairy tale kind but it is real.
The burner is already catering to iOS users and now they have launched the service for Android and it is pretty easy to use. This is a must have FREE App for you if you have a Android phone. Burner provides disposable phone numbers at the push of a button. Make calls and send texts from temporary phone numbers. Receive calls, texts and voicemails on your Burner disposable phone numbers. Find a number in any area code. You then get the following from the App :
✓ One free Burner
✓ Incoming and outgoing voice calls
✓ Incoming and outgoing text messages
✓ Earn free credits for inviting your friends
Burner is perfect for any time you want to keep in touch, but may not want to give out your personal, private phone number. Temporary phone numbers are ideal for:
✓ Job searches or multiple business lines
✓ Short-term projects
✓ Doctors, lawyers, teachers, and other professionals
✓ Craigslist (buying or selling)
✓ Social networks (Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Foursquare, etc.)
After you have exhausted your free Burner number you have to purchase another if you need one. This can be done by earning free credits by inviting your friends or outright purchase. The purchased number is a bit costly, the most basic level cost $2 bucks gets you 3 credits, which is good for a “Mini Burner" or a number that lasts 7 days, 20 voice minutes, or 60 texts.
The App itself is very simple all you have to do after installing it is to tap the button "Create Burner". In the window you have to pick an area code and choose which number(obviously your own) your new burner should forward to. Click another button, and you’re done. Now you have go a Burner Number which is a new, secondary phone number that connects to your real number, and it can be used to send and receive both calls and texts. When you’re done, you just trash the number and forget about it.
