Topic: DIALED!
Message: Posted by: Billman (Dec 19, 2012 07:30PM)
Hey Café!
I wanted to share with all of you a special project I've been working on.

The effect is called DIALED! and allows you to reveal a spectators phone number at any time.
So imagine you ask a spectator to think of her phone number and digit by digit you begin to reveal it and end your effect by actually calling her with your phone, a spectators phone or even a landline phone.

So a few highlights:
You never once ask for her number
No stooges
No phishing
No spectator help
Just you, her and your phones.

Oh yeah and if all that sounds crazy, I'm offering it for free! Greg Rostami has been kind enough to host the file on his website.

For a great review by Greg, the following was posted in the APPearing soon section of the Café

Anyone with comments or suggestions, please feel free to PM me.

Happy holidays!
Bill Perkins

I really don't understand how to use Google voice to call... Can someone explain?

In the review he has a way to do it on an iPhone and its actually really good. Especially with the popularity of cell phones and the privacy of their personal number.

Yes, Greg has a great use for DIALED! With his new iPredict pro. This allows both android and iPhone users to perform DIALED!

DIALED! Is less of a routine, but more of a tool that you use to obtain the personal phone number of any spectator. If you want to skip the final phone call and just reveal the number you can do that. I've been working on ideas to incorporate this into a card effect where the spectator chooses 7 cards and they end up being the value of her phone number. The sky's the limit. I'd love to hear others ideas using DIALED! as a tool.

Google voice is only necessary if you want to use your phone to call the spectator. If you want to use another spectators phone or a landline then google voice isn't necessary. You only have to memorize her 7 digit number.
For those unaware of google voice it is a free service from google that allows you to create a different phone number that can connect to your phone. So every text or call made to google voice is forwarded to your phone.

I made a Google voice account. I am just really confused about how to use it to call someone.

MagicMaddy,
Is been a little while since I set up my google voice number but I think the following website should help. You need to make sure you set up a google voice number. Just downloading the google voice app will not set up a google number. You will need to use a computer or tablet to set up you google voice number. Once your number is set up you can use your regular dialed and when you call some one it will ask you if you want to use your number or your google voice number. Once set up its very easy to use

If you need more help please feel free to PM me and I will be more than happy to help.

Thanks,
Bill

Here are a few performances of iPredict Pro and Bill Perkins' DIALED!
http://youtu.be/iuDkU_5tJkw

I've been having SO MUCH fun this holiday season freaking people out with this potent mixture.

For my iPredict Pro customers here's a little bonus regarding DIALED!

With iPredict Pro:

You can Perform DIALED! on both an iPhone and Android.
Your phone can be in full view the whole time (you don't have to hide your phone when you receive the text message).
You don't have to do a force at the beginning of the trick (totally free choice of any card or number)!
You don't have to run an Auto-Answer app on your phone.
You get to call your new "girl" friend from your REAL mobile number (not your Google Voice number).
Your phone can be FULLY examined at the end of the trick . . . no one will ever find a caller ID of the girl's number.

If you are one of my iPredict Pro customers, please PM me or email me, and I'll tell you how to do the above.
grostami@gmail.com

Thank you Bill for such an amazing addition to the list of things you can do with iPredict Pro.

Merry Christmas,
Greg Rostami

Hi Greg ... thanks for the reply, and respects to you ... I just love iForce. One of my best buys.

The link
http://rostamimagic.com/Dialed!.pdf
does not work for me at all ...

http://rostamimagic.com works fine
but adding /Dialed!.pdf does not, as if the file is missing from the server ?

Hi Martin.Lester,

You can perform Dialed! in the UK if you use it with iPredict Pro.

AND, it will also work with your iPhone.

As you can see from these performances, I'm using an iPhone.

Both videos were awesome. You could tell everyone was having a blast at the party and loved the magic.
Ipredict pro is amazing! Such a great effect and from the video it seems super streamlined and simple.

I've been getting a few questions regarding Google voice so I thought it would be good to offer up some ideas and solutions that don't use Google voice.
Google voice is only needed if you want to have your phone receive the text message AND call their phone. If Google voice is unavailable in your area or not something you want to use here are other options.

After you have obtained their phone number via the auto reply text you can:

1. Use someone else's phone to make the call. This will require you to remember the phone number
2. Do an outright reading of the spectators phone number and have them confirm it is there number.
3. While away from a group set up a deck of cards where there phone number is set up using the values of the cards. This allows you to reveal their number using any revelation of the cards. Danny Garcia has a great trick that allows the spectators to shuffle and reveal a predefined 10 digit #.
4. While away, write their number on a piece of paper along with any other info you gathered while talking with them and seal it in an envelope. While back with the group you can show the envelope and then force questions on the spectator of the answers that you already have written down. Forcing a card during this also heightens the experience.

These are just a few examples. Once you obtain their phone number ANY reveal can be accomplished.

If anyone has other ideas we can open this forum to gather great ideas for revealing their number!

Thanks,
Bill

Hey Guys,
Since I released DIALED!, I've been developing a very fun and extremely crazy idea that utilizes the DIALED! principal to create an unforgettable moment between two spectators.
The idea is to "Push" one spectators phone call from your phone, to another spectators phone. The First spectator can be completely random and have never met you or the other spectator. The effect begins by Spectator A calling YOUR phone, Everyone sees the call come through, then at your command with a pushing movement your phone stops ringing and Spectator B's Phone immediately begins ringing. Spectator B can Answer the phone and both spectators are 100% connected and talking. You're phone is no longer in the loop.

A few Key points: The two spectators Do NOT need to know each other or have EVER met. You NEVER ask ANYONE for their Phone Number. The Phone number that shows up on the second Spectators phone is 100% Spectator A's phone number. Once you have performed DIALED!, the setup for this effect is less than a 30 seconds.

For those interested Please PM me and I will get back to you with Details on the Workings of what I am calling "PUSH!"
