Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) February 8, 2010
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, when singles are looking for love, Funbers (http://www.funbers.com) launches a safe and private way to screen the studs from the duds. Funbers is a new service designed for the dating crowd that provides an alternative phone number – a funber – to screen incoming calls and make calls without revealing one’s true number.
Is He a Keeper or Creeper?
A funber provides single dating women with identity protection and privacy. Now, when speed dating or attending singles mingles, they can hand out their funber and feel secure until a relationship is on stronger footing. If the guy they thought had potential doesn’t quite live up to expectations, or can’t take the hint, a funber can help deliver the news—via a busy signal or an out of service message. A funber is also perfect for anyone in the online dating crowd who wants to take their love life from cyberspace to the real world—with another level of security and comfort.
Inspired by a Classic Seinfeld Episode
Funbers was inspired by a classic Seinfeld episode where Elaine attends a party and meets a man wearing a bad denim vest. Thinking she never wants to hear from him again, she decides to give him a fake phone number—only to realize later she wants to make contact. Funbers owners enjoy the kind of phone number control and freedom that wasn’t available to Elaine.
How it Works
A funber is a "new number" which integrates with a cell phone or land line. Users can still call out with their personal number. A funber works like a "second line" for one’s personal phone that gives privacy and safety. It does not reveal one’s personal phone number or identity and incoming calls may be screened or blocked.
The service has been intentionally set-up to be initiated in a few easy steps. Additionally, Funbers has chosen to avoid com¬plex systems like having separate call profiles or unique ring tones and that can make it complicated for the user.
Funbers service is available nationwide and is compatible with all phone and cellular service providers. There's a handy web app for Smartphones like the iPhone®, Android™ or Palm®.
The Funbers basic sign up package is only $11.00 which includes the monthly Funbers lease of $5.00 and 300 minutes of talk time. Text messaging can be added for an additional $3.00 for 400 texts.
There’s no long-term contract and the service can be cancelled at anytime.
Other Funbers Uses
A funber can also be used anywhere someone might give out their regular phone number including:
- Online Shopping: protects online shoppers from appearing on a solicitor's call list.
- Craigslist or eBay postings: an alternative to having a home or cell phone number posted for the world to see.
- A second number: for the small business or home office.
- Completing marketing surveys or applications: no more annoying calls from telemarketers following up on the survey.
- Job searches: by using a funber, job searchers can keep their search confidential; they’ll know not to answer a call when others might overhear.
-- For plans with limited cell phone minutes but an unlimited 'myFaves' plan: by making a funber a 'fave' and using it to call out, cell phone users can ensure they’ll never go over their minutes again.
-- Discreet Number: incoming and outgoing calls, including phone records, remain confidential.
A Funber is an alternative phone number that gives you privacy and safety. It lets you screen calls to your personal phone or call someone without revealing your true number. Now you can protect your confidentiality—and feel safe when dating, shopping online or posting a listing on sites like Craigslist.
