Your phone could help you out of a pickle

We've all been in an awkward situation where we pretend we are on the phone. Some of us have been unlucky enough to have the phone ring while faking a call. Well those embarrassing days could soon be a thing of the past if you trade in your used phone for cash and buy an Orange handset.

A new app has been developed which makes your phone ring when you are in a situation you don't want to be in. For instance, if you happen to bump into an old friend you really can't be bothered to speak to, you can get away from the conversation by summoning the Fake A Call app to ring your phone allowing you to make your excuses and leave.

Orange compiled a survey which found that 80% of people have pretended to receive a call to get out of a situation they didn't want to be in. The top reasons for faking a call are as follows:

1. To appear busy when waiting for a friend (37%)

2. To avoid speaking to an old friend you bump into (31%)

3. To get out of a dull date (11%)

4. To look popular (11%)

5. To get out of a meeting at work (7%)

To buy the Fake A Call app, you must have a Java-enabled Orange handset and two pounds to spare. Visit Orange World from your Orange mobile phone, or by text FAKE to 247 for more information.
