Your escape clause for unwanted phone calls. Need a reason to hang up the phone? The Pretender is your way out of difficult situations. The unit offers four different sounds to get you off the hook fast. When a collection agency calls, a baby cries out in the background. If a stranger is on the other end, make a dog bark or the doorbell ring so it does not seem like you are home alone. When you are too busy to talk press a button for a call waiting sound. These effects can be used individually, or in any combination, to make sure that you are not kept on the phone. In addition to these sounds, the Pretender is also a voice changer equipped with six different settings to distort your voice, helping to make it unrecognizable.
