hello!

I want to use whatsapp (talk with a person) without him learning my real number or by using a fake number

is that possible?

there are several guides on the net, but I couldn't find a decent one!

thanks!

If you don't mind spending a little extra money, it's not all bad to set up a whole new separate internet phone for general use that is only used for special case uses. I have Magic Jack paid for five years for that kind of thing and I tell people it's "outbound only" so it should "never ring".

(And in one weird case, here in NY City USA one of the agencies told me "oh, you bought your cell phone in Massachusetts? Sorry, we can't call you" (?!!) )

Plus just general emergencies and weirdness like "I lost my phone, let's dial it ... Oh! It's under the laundry!!"

Get a cheap prepaid number, and connect it to a web client or a low-cost phone. There are several manuals/howto's online to set that web client stuff up.
For whatsapp to work the other party needs to know your number, or they can't reach/connect you.

For anonymous talk(s), you should probably use Skype, not whatsapp.

wraith was talking about getting a number via google voice - apparently you could forward calls to another number (but this may just work in the States).
I never checked it out properly myself...
