I have not tried the service, so unlike some of my other links here, I can not provide any assurance regarding the service.  That being said, I really like the idea of the Numbr service.  The idea is a simple one, you sign up for a temporary phone number.  If you do nothing the number expires one month after you sign up.  You also have the option of expiring the phone number.  They guarantee that numbers will not  be reused (I don’t know how that could be true).  It’s an outgrowth of Craigslist so there’s a real business behind this.  I’m just not sure how they make money.
