Fake Number's phone numbers are recommended for drama use, such as those involving TV shows and radio entertainment, however you can also use our random phone numbers when providing documented examples on websites or in printed literature. In addition, you'll probably find us handy if you ever want to withhold private contact details when filling out online surveys and promotional offers.
Our data is provided to us by industry regulators, communications providers, and local authorities. Fake phone numbers randomly generated by Fake Number are unallocated numbers that telephony companies cannot assign to customers under current legislation. This is to protect residents against the potential influx of phone calls that they may receive should their telephone numbers appear in a movie or film.
Were you to make up a random phone number yourself, there is a high chance of your number ending up being legitimate. However, with Fake Number's ethical service, you can have full confidence that all generated telephone numbers are indeed 100% non-working. If you're still not convinced about how we can help, you should check out these BBC News reports: Calls for God upset phone-owner and Man 'shares God's phone number'.
Please note that the use of any fake telephone numbers generated by Fake Number does not imply that the resulting number has been allocated. It should also be remembered that whilst these random phone numbers will not be assigned for use by telephony companies in the foreseeable future, there is no guarantee that this situation will remain unchanged forever. Ultimately, ensuring that there is sufficient numbering capacity available to meet future requirements for 'real' telephony purposes is likely to be of greater priority.
