Top 10 Most Famous People You Can Call


Update June 30, 2017: This list was written 2009 and many of these phone numbers probably do not work. Obviously Obama is no longer at the White House, while Trump, our #1 on the list is now residing there.

While your address book or Rolodex might be filled up with plenty of phone numbers of friends and family, you may want to add to your contacts the following world famous individuals who provide their phone number to the public. So, regardless if you want to call the leader of the free world or just your buddy in another state, you can definitely benefit from choosing to call from your computer instead of your home phone.

Now, here’s your VIP call list for your dialing pleasure:

10. Barack Obama
