Ever given your number to a girl at a bar, only to sober up and realize she's a psycho stalker whose sole mission is to call you at all hours of the day and night to tell you how you've ruined her life because you didn't show to the love sacrifice ritual she arraigned for the two of you? Me too.
You can avoid the awkwardness (and relentless calling), with a Vumber. A "virtual phone number", it's a disposable two-way calling service you can link to any phone.
Once you subscribe, choose any area code in the US (told that blonde at happy hour you were a Wall Street big shot on vacation? Get one with a 212), and an available Vumber is generated. When someone calls that number you can either answer the call normally, have it ring busy, send it to a special voice mail, or have it play a recording that the number is no longer in service.
Your privacy is protected on outgoing calls, too. Just dial your Vumber, then dial the number you want to call. Your Vumber, not your actual phone number, shows up on their caller ID.
You can set up multiple Vumbers in multiple area codes and have them all go to multiple voicemail boxes. Which works, say, if you are a business trying to look like you have offices in multiple states. Or a frequent traveler who likes to give out a local number.
Use it for giving out on dating sites, social networks, job boards, when posting items online for sale, or when making purchases that require a valid phone number. It'll keep your phone spam to a minimum. And protect your privacy.
