We’ve all heard the argument that the internet and modern technology makes it easier for wayward partners – spouses, finances, boyfriends and girlfriends – to be unfaithful. With email, Facebook, IM and text messaging, there seems to be a million ways to “hook up” outside of our committed relationships and not get caught.
Many of us have been burned before. Many of us have learned firsthand just how sleazy the internet can be and how easy it is for our partners to carry on little trysts via text message…
Um, Tiger Woods, anyone? Jesse James? Practically every philandering man in the public eye has been busted using his cell phone to contact his mistresses.
If you suspect that your man is cheating, I have a trick that might help you figure it out.
It’s called Slydial.
What is it? It is a voice messaging service that directly connects you to someone’s voicemail…without the phone ever ringing.
Of course it wasn’t created to check up on your husband’s errant phones calls listed on your cell phone bill – it was actually made to save time when you didn’t want to really to talk to anyone, but wanted to leave a message. Think about when you are calling in sick to work – you don’t want to actually speak to your boss, so you Slydial them and get straight into their voicemail. *cough*
Of course, once a few smart women figured out “Hey, I can call that new number that’s been on Hubby’s phone bill every morning at 3 am without them actually seeing the phone ring or catching my number…” Well, the rest, as they say, is history.
Here’s how it works:
- Dial 267-SLYDIAL (267-759-3425) from any landline or mobile phone.
- At the voice prompt, enter the U.S. mobile phone number of the person you want to slydial.
- You will be directly connected to their voicemail. If you hear, “Hi, this is Slutty McSlut Slut” then case closed.
