Bored? Call this number for a musical surprise

It seems that no one uses their smartphones to make phone calls anymore. When comes to communicating, it’s all about texting, WhatsApp, social media, and the web.

Here’s a chance to reacquaint yourself with your smartphone’s ability to make voice calls. Call 830-476-5664 and you’ll get a strange musical surprise that lasts about 90 seconds before it disconnects.

Why would anyone do this? What’s the point? Whatever the case, more than 100,000 people have called over the last week.

As suggests, it having this number is handy for giving out to dudes/women who ask for your number at a bar. I’m going to use it for filling out Internet forms that require a phone number when they really, really don’t need my phone number.

It also begs the question “If you were to do something similar, what musical surprise would you choose.”

Go ahead. Call it. 830-476-5664
