Rejection Hotline Numbers to Reject Potential Dates [2023]

Rejection hotline numbers are phone numbers that people can call to receive a recorded message rejecting them, often in a humorous or sarcastic way. These numbers are typically set up as a joke or prank and are not intended to be used as a serious means of rejecting someone.

Girls found this as an easy way to give a fake number to pushy boyfriends who would not take a hint of no for an answer.

What is Rejection hotline number?

Typically a girl would give a fake number which would be the number of the rejection Hotline. When he would dial the rejection Hotline number, a funny tune would play and it would be revealed that the girl did not want to disclose her real phone number.

Rejection hotlines were very popular years back when mobile phones and other social media tools like Whatsapp were not available so landline numbers were the common way to contact people.

Here is an mp3 embed of the original rejection hotline number, see what happen if you called it!

Rejection Hotline Numbers

Original Rejection Line started in New York with the single official New York Rejection Line Phone number 212-479-7990. When someone asks your telephone number to woo and date you, give them this number, and the Rejection line will give them a recorded rebuff. They had an extensive collection of rejection recordings in mp3. They even provided these premium rejection services completely free of charge!! The press review section shows an interesting portrayal of this service.

On similar lines, several different phone rejection lines and humor hotlines started in different parts of the US.

Rejection Hotline 2022: Call 605–475–6968

Update: Most of these funny rejection hotlines have shut down. I now found a new Rejection Hotline at 605–475–6968 as well. It calls itself to version 2.0 as it handles both calls and text messages. Earlier calls to landline phones only heard the audio messages. Now with mobile phones being popular, rejection text messages will also be sent back.

All in all –  If you need to reject someone or end a relationship, it’s important to do so in a respectful and considerate manner, rather than relying on a joke or prank.
