Remember, if you're unsure which one is suitable for your friend, you can always try playing it yourself in the sample studio. (Option 2 Main menu - Sample the Wind Up Calls)

Asking for them by Name.

This bit is completely optional and can be skipped by pressing 2.

Most of the characters have the ability to ask for your victim by their first name, adding to the realism.

Example: When the call is answered, it could say 'Hello is that Susie?' or 'Hello is that John?'

So, when asked, simply say your victims first name ... that's it ...

Give it a try and really make them believe they are talking to a real person!

Calling your 'Victim'.

Finally, How would you like to put the call through to your 'victim'?

Option 1: Calling their phone - This option allows you to listen in secretly !

Option 2: Using the phone your on - This option allows you to pretend you've just had a call from someone, when asked press 2 and hand the victim the phone!

 

When the call is answered.

When they answer the phone & have finished speaking, the wind up will begin automatically.

BUT ... If the call is not answered by your 'victim', press # immediately, this will give you enough time to ask for them.

When you hear them say 'hello', press # again to start the wind up.

 

THEN ... SIT BACK, RELAX & LISTEN TO THEM SQUIRM!

I'm ready for a wind-up !
