Prank Call Ideas

If you’re looking for some great prank call ideas to play a practical joke on a friend, a neighbor, classmate or a stranger, here’s a list of a few hilarious ideas that work every time!

Prank Call Idea #1

This is a classic prank call idea. Call up the person and ask for a person named Joey. Since there’s no Joey, the answer would be: “You’ve got the wrong number!” Call up the victim several times during the entire week and disguise your voice in diverse accents. After a couple of days, call up the person again and say: “This is Joey. Have you taken any messages for me?” We are sure that the person at the other end of the line would totally want to strangle you with the telephone wire.

Prank Call Idea #2

Call up the victim and pretend to be a phone service engineer. Say that there is a problem with the phone lines and you would want to test the voice quality. Then choose a few stupid or funny phrases and make the person at the other end of the line repeat the same.

Prank Call Idea #3

Call up your chosen victim and say that you are a DJ from the local radio station.
