The internet's original prank calling site, hit a milestone last Thursday, sending over 100 million prank calls since its launch in 2009. lets users prank call their friends without saying a word. PrankDial's gallery of pranks such as "Why You Call My Girlfriend" and "You Hit My Car" are situational soundbites, coined “conversators” which incite reaction from even the most tame. These pranks can be sent to any phone number directly from the PrankDial site.

"The key to a great prank call is creating a situation that can happen to anybody," says Fahim Saleh, PrankDial's Founder and CEO, "Most people don't realize they are talking to a computer, it all sounds pretty realistic. There are a lot of questions being asked in these soundbites to get people to react."

And react they do. The 'Submissions' section on the PrankDial site features recordings submitted by users. A recent submission has an old man very frustrated and angry when he is told his shipment of 100,000 Mitt Romney stickers is on its way and must be paid for. "You listen to me, I didn't order them!” he screams.

With so much entertainment to offer, it’s no wonder that yesterday the site surpassed 100 million pranks sent by its devoted fans. “PrankDial has a really big following,” says Saleh, “I think most people are just really curious to hear how their friends will react in some of these awkward situations.”

The site adds new pranks each week to keep users coming back and is currently running Facebook and Twitter promotions in celebration of hitting this exciting milestone.
