Point to Ponder
Everything looks neat and clean here. But there are some points to ponder before you use this app.
- Fake Call app rings your iPhone only when the device is not unlocked and you have to be on the app interface. In case your iPhone is locked or you are using other apps, the app simply sends a notification either on your phone or paired Apple Watch. Next, you have to tap on the notification to receive fake calls.
- If you fail to tap on notification badge, you won’t receive those bogus phone calls. Sometimes, the app doesn’t play ring as you may have locked the phone screen accidentally.
- The in-app advertisement is one of the dislikes for many users. Since the app is free, everyone has to face this menace of ads.
- From the bottom menu, you can change ringtone, toggle Vibrate and Listening on the phone options.

Point to Ponder
- One of the drawbacks of this app is you cannot lock your phone or cannot touch the home button. If in case your phone is locked or you touch the home button, you won’t receive any fake call you have set up earlier. This means you have to set up auto-lock time at Never from Settings → Display & Brightness → Auto-Lock → Never.
- Moreover, once you set up the fake call, you need to be on the app setting and cannot use other apps.
That’s all friends!
