Author Topic: Anyone else not use a punting phone?  (Read 3717 times)

If you're single then you have nothing to worry about.

It's only when you're married that you'll have to learn the art of subterfuge.

Im attached and use my personal phone

Its a constant worry

Guess u like the added thrill then? Otherwise £10 will sort it

£10 on 3 mobile lasts an age.
Does it ever.... if you hardly use it for calls or texts, then yeah maybe.

I was topping up £120/month on O2 Pay As You Go for punting purposes for a few months.
I never stopped to think that O2 have decent tarriffs for unregistered Pay As You Go, I just assumed they didn't.

When I did I got the O2 Big Bundle £20/month and more then enough call time and texts to keep me going for the month.

Wasted a few £100s of punting money before setting up that tarriff!

Surely having one phone where you can hide/delete messages is safer than getting caught with a second phone?  What would you say if your SO picked up your bag and out popped a mystery phone?

I dunno, I think all options have their cons.

I'm lucky my phone is unlocked. I just use two sims rather than two phones :D

Some phones actually take two SIMs at the same time avoiding the need to fiddle around swapping them.

There are pros and cons to both.

As smartphones can do so much these days (blocking numbers, hidden folders, password protection) it is possible to run a pretty undercover ship with one. I use mine for communicating with civvy girls I'm interested in. You need to know the phone and its technology back to front though, as there are many ways of slipping up that may never even cross your mind. For example, iTunes actually backs up your text messages every time you sync and they can be accessed through your computer.

The main thing that stops me using my real number with prossies is that I think it compromises my anonymity. It is possible to find out more details about a person if you have their real mobile number.

An unlocked smartphone and a second sim is a good all round option in my view.

The main reason I use a punting phone is that some of the pro$$ies will send unsolicited texts advertising tours or rates. One was a particular pest for doing it. I has a £10 el cheapo Nokia for punting that is only turned on for punting purposes. So if they send texts, I won't know until I turn my phone on again where I shall be a position to deal with them.

Also I have heard that some WGs share phone lists via websites etc. I do agree it could affect anonymity.

This is my main reason for using a second punting phone an unregistered Pay As You Go line.
It is likely that most peoples main phone is a contract line registered to them.

So just buy a second sim not a second phone.

No cons in my case to having a dedicated punting phone, i can hide it where it wont be found and its off with the battery taken out when i am not using it, and i make my punting arrangements in my car when i am alone. I agree having a punting sim is a good all round option for those punters that cant hide a punting phone.

I dont need a smartphone for punting but i totally agree with your summation about knowing exactly how they work before using them for punting purposes, and once you know that they can be good for punting.

Like some others have said, I'd find managing a second (burner) phone more likely to get me in trouble than just being very selective with use of my personal phone. Which isn't a smartphone anyway.

Curious6705

I like what seems to me to be the simplicity of having a relatively dumb punting phone, to which any incriminating calls or texts are isolated.

I have more than one unlocked smartphone anyway - though I'd be reluctant to use one for punting because I'd need to watch out for it automatically syncing activity across multiple devices.

I do use Chrome in Incognito mode on a smart phone for viewing Adult content, but any texts or voice calls I make on my cheapo punting phone. If anyone ever asked why I bought it I would just say it's a cheap phone I bought in case of emergencies.

So just buy a second sim not a second phone.

And then you have to explain why your phone is off.

And then you have to explain why your phone is off.

 You only put the punting sim in your phone when arranging your punting, when your not punting you have your non punting sim in your phone which you use as usual. That punting sim doesnt need to be in your phone for long. IF you have a partner that tracks your EVERY minute then bad luck.

So ive decided on this phone as it's the cheapest http://www.tesco.com/direct/vodafone-samsung-e1200-black/378-1786.prd?pageLevel=&skuId=378-1786

Do I just buy the PAYG sim, put money on it and im good to go? Will any PAYG sim work?

I'd recommend paying a few pound to get the phone brand you are used to say like Nokia or maybe Samsung in your case.
Some times arranging a meet can involve sending lots of texts and getting them through in a timely manner helps a lot to be able to navigate the shitty phone quickly and easily.
I only ever went for Nokias.
The Nokia 2630 is the smallest and lightest (and so most easily hidden away) if you're familar with Nokia, can be purchased on eBay.



I've got loads of them  :rolleyes:

That's a good point mate, I reckon I'll probably do that!

Totally agree.

My punting phone is an old Nokia, well hidden when not in use, only does calls and texts which are easy and quick to delete. Once deleted I know there is nothing left lurking. To me a smart phone is too smart, I don't fully understand how my iPhone works and what is going on in the background. That makes it dangerous to use for any punting purposes.

A punting phone is a must, just as not using your real name for punts. Cheap Nokia phone only open when used for punting, then switched off at other times. Easily delete all contents after a punt and hide anywhere in the home or car.

I used my personal phone initially.

 I now have a punting phone as my personal phone is used for work.

It is connected to the hands free in the van. I don't fancy taking a call from my favorite wg while sat next to the boss, stuck in traffic in a busy London street. Not that it would ever happen, but it's not a risk I'd like to take.

Many punters have wives or partners and it would be very bad if they were caught with prossies.  Thus many would want to reduce the possibility of their "Real" personas being linked. So punting phones and fake names are used.
