Geek Tip: Jangl Keeps Your Phone Number

I'm at a point in my life when I'm just not willing to give my number to strangers I meet online or in the real world. They might call four times a day, work for a PR agency that will stalk me from here to eternity, or (and this is the most likely scenario) happen to be a creep.

Web-based phone service Jangl lets two people talk (and soon text too) by phone via local disposable phone numbers dispensed online. You never have to reveal your number and deal with the consequences. The program is much like our past Website of the Day Number, which allows you to create an anonymous telephone number that can self-destruct. How does Jangl work?

You share the email address of the person you want to call with Jangl and they give you a Jangl number to call them. When you call someone’s Jangl number, you can either leave them a voicemail, which Jangl sends to them by email, or if the person has allowed it, your call will be forward to their phone and you can talk live.
