Teenagers have a brand new smartphone prank so stay on your toes

Carl Anka

What’s a little prank between friends?

It’s April 1 shortly, so right on cue there’s a brand new prank on the scene to hoodwink unsuspecting participants.

The trick is simple enough, all it takes is your smartphone and one simple text.

All you have to do is text your target with a message saying you’ve lost your phone, and then wait for how long it takes your recipient to twig you’re having them on.


Then you finish with a “you’ve been memed on”.


Teenage pranking, simple as it is foolish.

Keep on your toes, for April Fools Day in a few weeks, you don’t want to be caught looking silly.

Stay safe. Don’t get memed on.
