Created in 2001, The Rejection Hotline is a fake phone number you can give out instead of your real number. Callers hear our humorous Rejection Hotline message and are not-so-subtly informed of your non-interest.

Now you can text your 3-digit area code to 95577, and we'll text you back with your local Rejection Hotline number. If we don't have a Rejection Hotline number in your area, we'll text you back with the closest Rejection Hotline instead! The service is free, but normal msg and data rates apply.
Every Rejection Hotline number now has a "Press 2 for Spanish" option. We also have Spanish-only Rejection Hotlines all over the country! Call 781-452-0832 (for women) or 631-960-7174 (for men) or click here for more Spanish Humor Hotlines!
In addition to our 200+ US Humor Hotlines, we've recently launched our first full-fledged international service in the UK with HumourHotlines.co.uk. The UK Rejection Hotline can be found at 020 7979 1034. Also, we've set up test Rejection Hotlines in Guadalajara, Mexico (33-4624-1974) and Rio De Janeiro, Brazil (11 3958-0326). If you want to hear these lines, but live in the United States you can find them at the following numbers:
- English (UK): 202-629-9216
- Spanish (Mexico): 781-452-0832 or 631-960-7174
- Portuguese (Brazil):413-497-0096
We now have over 200 OTHER "Humor Hotlines" (all very different than the original Rejection Hotline); your feedback (and your help in spreading the word!) is appreciated!

It sounds like a regular unpersonalized cell phone greeting. The caller doesn't know they've been rejected. They leave a message. We play those messages here!

Can't find a number for your state?
If you can’t find a number for your city/state, you can request a new area code by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, we suggest picking a Rejection Hotline number above and just saying “It’s where I went to school” or “I haven’t changed my cell phone number since I moved.”
