Well not exactly.
Besides making prank calls, there are some really legitimate and successful uses for caller id spoofing.
Professionals – Say you are a lawyer and you want to make a call from your personal smartphone but want to make it look like you are calling from the office…this is a legitimate use.
Bail Bondsmen – I’m sure that I don’t have to explain this one.
Suspicious spouses or significant others – Using caller id spoofing will free up your mind when use this tool to find out if someone is cheating. If you see a suspicious number on your mate’s phone, you could call it find out the real deal.
Anonymous calls – Sometimes blocking your phone number won’t get the person to pick up your phone call. I actually heard a story of a guy who was divorced and his wife would not let him talk to his kids. He used the kids grandma’s phone number to show up on the caller id and was able to talk to his kids.
