Creating A Burner

Create new numbers for every situation! To create a new Burner, follow these steps: 

Step 1

Make sure you are in the Inbox for 'All Numbers', Tap the Gear icon from the Main Screen located at the top right, then tap Burner Numbers, then   + Create Number

Step 2

Choose your Burner type! 

You can get unlimited calls, texts, and pics by tapping "Upgrade" under Subscriptions and upgrading to an auto-renewing subscription. Learn more about: Starting & Managing a Subscription.
Alternatively, tap the button next to the Picture Burner to create a temporary pre-paid number that comes pre loaded with a certain number of calls and text, with a life span of 30 days. 
Note: Pre-paid numbers cannot be extended and will expire in 30 days. If you'd like to keep the number, you'll need to attach it to your subscription, or upgrade your subscription package to hold more lines.
Note: Australians will only see the option for a "Text Only Burner," and then only with US or Canadian phone numbers. Sorry, but for right now additional Burner types and numbers are not available in Australia.

Don't have enough credits for a new Prepaid line? The app will prompt you to buy more credits if you don't have enough for the Burner you choose. Learn how to buy more Credits.

Step 3

Enter an area code for the Burner number you want.

Step 4

Choose a number!
Keep in mind:
  • The app will display 5 choices in your area code unless we do not have it available.
  • If we're out of stock for numbers in your area code, numbers from area codes nearby will be displayed instead. New numbers are released daily.
  • If you don't like any of the numbers, you can tap "Pick a different area code".
When you're ready, tap the number you wish to claim as your own. 
Note: If a pop up says "Oops, cannot create phone number," that means someone purchased it before you (this rarely occurs, but it does occasionally happens—our purchases process in real-time). 

Step 5

You're all set!
"Here is your new number!" will briefly be shown, and the app will take you to your new Burner Details screen.
