Author Topic: Punting phone  (Read 6565 times)

Absolutely. Keep it simple, less chance of getting caught out but always remember to change the SIMs over of course.

If you have anything to lose by being found out as a punter using a punting phone or SIM is the smart thing to do, and your circumstances could change in the future obviously so it could also protect you against that.

The trouble with just a sim is that being so small can get lost easily. I know, had one drop out of my wallet without knowing. Also having to keep changing it over. Whatever system suits you best, stick to it and shouldn't go wrong?

If you have an OH then for me a punting phone is essential.

The thought of accidentally texting Mrs CBP doesn't bear thinking about. Plus the odd prossie has contacted out of the blue me on my punting phone.

My punting phone is an old Nokia, basic and crappy on PAYG, just happens to be an old phone that I bought another sim card for. As fro stashing it, it stays locked away in my desk drawer at work and the call / text logs get cleared after every punt.

Personally I think punting and smart phones are incompatible.

Matches my modus operandi perfectly. Keep it at work, dumb phone, clear called and received numbers/texts after each punt. I do store numbers on it prior to a punting trip, but the whole thing is PIN protected and no numbers are stored on the SIM.

Somebody else here (?LL) has a drawer of old phones and just uses one of them. Ideal, in my opinion, hiding in plain site. I can't do this as have never kept an old phone, but will start. I upgrade very infrequently though.

New punter here just researching the best way to get set up. This seems a great idea, especially if the phone locks.

the way I'm thinking about it, I don't want anyone knowing what I was up to even if I drop dead somewhere - unless it's on top of a WG , in which case the game's pretty much up anyway.

I just use my normal iPhone


Use full password protection and able to wipe remotely if the worst happened

I don't understand this. I would never dream of getting a punting phone. You want it as simple as possible? Just one phone. Delete your texts and calls and don't let anyone steal it.

That's about as simple as you can get.

Somewhat naive. I don't know what phone you use, but if you're sat there, next to your wife, and a prossie cold calls you how do you react? What if your phone is lying around and you get a cold text and the partner picks it up and sees it?

Also it's your mobile number, it's traceable to you. It could be used to track you. I have an example of this that I would share by pm.

It's true that you don't have to have a punting phone, but I think your strategy is a little simplistic for anybody who lives with, or spends a lot of time with, their other half.

You dont need another phone, just a dedicated punting sim is sufficient. IMO its the smart thing to have IF you have a partner or anyone else you dont want to know you punt. If you dont care then there is no problem using your regular phone obviously.

What some punters do as has been posted on here over the years is use their work phones and/or work email addresses and for a small number thats caused a problem.

It's not exactly difficult to run a second phone and when it is off and locked away there can be no cold calls from prossies or texts about the punt arranged for the next day.

Don't let anyone steal it - I'll remember to keep hold of my iPhone should anyone attempt to half inch it.

But if it's locked away at home and you aren't there, how do you use it? Seems like far too much hassle to me.

This is low probability, but there's the risk of having a punt where you upset the WG, she goes ballistic and puts your phone number on the internet along with a lot of bullshit about how you beat her up etc.

If you have a punting phone and this happens, discard it and get a new one (for about £5).  More of a problem if you're using your main phone. 

And if you're using your main phone to punt with, make sure you google the number every so often just in case something incriminating appears.

Personally, I have a very cheap phone, with a separate sim. I genuinely use it for things like buying insurance, since I don't want them phoning my main phone. I ride a motorbike, so keep it in my bag all the time, telling the OH it's for an emergency, in case I loose my main phone. Just make sure I store numbers on the sim and wipe everything, just in case.

I've had a close call with a girl, phoning my punting phone, leaving messages. I threw the sim, £1 for a new one, backing up the numbers before hand.

It comes out when I need it. Besides it isn't locked away at home and I don't punt from home.

Again, it all depends on keeping things separate from an OH, that's where the hassle comes in, not running 2 phones.

For any punter in a relationship, a punting phone is the only way to go. It takes an awful lot of stress away knowing no rogue emails/contacts turn up out of the blue. Unfortunately it's an email, AW message alert or some such that gets forgot in your sent items or trash that will catch you out. And believe me you don't need that. I got away with it once, I know there won't be a second time.

I still don't agree. I can understand what everyone is saying, buti only ever punt on a whim. I never book ahead, so if I wanted to do it I'd need my phone with me at the time I wanted to punt, not locked in a drawer.

If I got a cold call whilst I was with the oh, I would just blag it as a wrong number. Just like I would with a wrong g number. It's not difficult.

I think some of you like the thrill of hiding the phone and being some kind of James Bond character more than the actual punting.

it amazes me after all this time that people still post like UKP is top secret.

Women read this site because its more interesting than safe and all the other wankerish pish out there.

If your that thick that you cannot conceal your movements in this day and age then your fucked.

writing about it on a paying to shag a prostitute forum will only make women wiser.  Ever heard of a phonebox?

In fact you can pick up SIM cards for free, if a punter can't hide a SIM card or phone then maybe he should take up a new hobby like fishing, and the guy saying he would use his phone and just blag it if he was cold called, good luck with that, I don't know your Mrs, but most women aren't that stupid, do you really want to take the risk?

Not the case at all.
Fair enough, believe that you'll just blag your way out and the OH will buy every word of it but wait until you have a close call - an unsolicited text message that the OH sees - and then you'll get the pretty simple idea of having a punting phone.

Spot on, or a punting sim which as has been said if a punter cant hide one of them perhaps take up fishing as your partner must be one nosy woman.

If a punter has no partner, family or friends or doesnt care that all or some of them know he is a punter its not a problem using your main phone. Fast forward say a year though and a single punter has met and is going out with a woman he fancies. He takes her to the pub with some family and friends and one stupid idiot blurts out about the fact he punts with WGs, i wonder how the new girlfriend will take that news. Is it really worth the risk when its so simple to use and punting phone or sim and not tell those you know you punt.

Makes you realise that there are so many reasons why having a punting phone is a must.

Obviously my reason is the wife, she's not overly nosy and I'm not the sort who goes into convulsions should my iPhone be more than 2 feet away and you don't have to amputate my arm to get hold of the thing. Consequently we'll quite happily swap phones when necessary and I'll quite happily ask her to look at a text if she's closer and I can't be bothered. Suddenly becoming possessive of the phone or running off at every ding or bing would be highly suspicious.

I favour a separate phone because I don't trust technology I don't understand - and I don't understand the iPhone or trust what it is linking together. For more tech savvy punters it would be a good route to go though.

When I started punting about 6 months ago I was so naive as I do not understand the pros and cons of punting so I just use my normal phone. Once I discover this forum and read through many thread I started to think deeply about the implications of been outed especially to my marriage, career and reputation.
I remember phoning a WG I have seen only once and she called me by my punting name! Also recently I called one of my regulars with my new punting phone having booked her through AW but she sent her reply to my normal phone, these really got me thinking about being more careful.
Also if you have WhatsApp on your phone and regularly put in your picture,  its very easy to get hold of your pictures,  I have got many WG's face picture using WhatsApp saving me few quid I would have spent to subscribe to their private gallery.
So except you don't really care about been outed and do think that your profile could not rise in future a punting phone is a must.

I think that's the best solution.
We moved a few months back... I kick myself for throwing away all the old bricks.
I'll buy a £10 phone and put it in a drawer, in plain sight.
She'll have no idea if the phone was there before we moved or not..  So I can always say it's there.
I'll just wipe everything each time it's used, keep the sim separately and charge it when she's not around.

Tks for every advices

I have a "man drawer" with several old handsets in which I keep my worthy Nokia. It blends in perfectly. I take the battery and SIM out when not in use just to be on the safe side. It needs a PIN to get to the desktop screen as well. Works a treat for me.  :thumbsup:

The benefits of a punting phone (or sim) have just become apparent for me, at least.

Earlier this year, I saw a young lady at short notice, and because I was changing mobile company for my punting phone, the sim had not activated, so I used my work phone. This is the one and only time I have done this.

In the last 30 mins, just had a text from one of a well known group of pretty young ladies that work from hotels, saying she was leaving AW etc. It's not the content of the message but proves beyond doubt that some girls keep guy's numbers in their phonebook, which for me is unacceptable.

Luckily, my phone is always on silent, so no awkward questions, but it could have been a hell of a WTF moment if I'd been in the car, on bluetooth, with others present and she had called or others said, well who's it from?? ....... :scare:

Why, why, why, do WGs think it acceptable to retain numbers?? Punting phone or not?

Close call avoided, glad it wasn't at an inappropriate time.

I'd block her number in case she decides to come out of retirement in a couple of weeks and starts sending messages to that end.

Oh, she's blocked. No worries there.
