1. Change contact names
One of the cell phone pranks that prove to be very naughty to your victim is changing some contact names on their phone to random things. For example, open the contact app on a friend’s phone, replace the victim’s love interest with your contact name, and then flirt with him after saving the changes. Then, when the victims call or text their love interest, they would rather talk to you. You’ll have lots of fun with him. It is one of the harmless cell phone pranks.
2. Set lots of alarms
Another prank you can play on your friend is changing the alarm clock settings on his cell phone at random times. It might be when your victim is likely in a public place or late at night.

3. Change the language
One of the naughty pranks you can play is going into the settings and changing the language of your victim’s mobile.
4. Change the fingerprints

Next, attach the clear tape to the earpiece, then return the phone cover. So the next call will sound very soft. Although this prank is easy to detect, it will surely bring laughter when the victim finds the tape.
6. Add a text replacement
In this cell phone prank, you will do text replacement on your victim’s phone. Choose a word they probably often use in text and replace it with something funny.
