Jul 18 2007 - 10:00am

Ever wish you could create an anonymous telephone number that could self-destruct and erase the memory of certain callers? Thanks to a website called Numbr [1] you can do just that for free! Numbr allows you to generate your very own set of digits that can expire in one hour, one day, one week, or one month and will forward calls directly to your regular phone number. Featured on Lifehacker [2], Numbr is a great service to use if you need a temporary number for things like Craigslist [2] or creepy salesmen. Supported in twenty-three US cities, Numbr can forward calls to one or two phones, and will take voicemails as well as email you your temporary number's call history.
