If you have ever wanted a throw-away number, the new Burner iPhone app is defiantly the one for you, created by a company called Ad Hoc the application gives you a new phone number which can last for a selected period of time, either 20 minutes, 60 texts or seven days, once your time is up or you hit the ‘burn’ key, the number and all details from the number will be deleted permanently from the company’s servers after which you simply buy a new one.

Be warned although the title may suggest it, you really shouldn’t use this service for any illegal activities and their privacy policy does state “may disclose your personal data if required by law.”
