Neat. The Burner app let's you create disposable telephone numbers quickly and easily so you don't have to share your real number yet allowing you to receive voice calls and text messages. The app costs $1.99 and comes with a preloaded set of credits and can be reloaded at any time.

You can use a Burner for dating, Craigslist, short-term projects, side businesses, bands, and other times when you need to be in touch but want to maintain a little privacy. You can post a Burner number to Twitter or Facebook to let people know how to reach you, for marketing purposes, or just for fun. Any time you need to use a phone or give out a number on a non-permanent basis, consider a Burner.
