The Most Popular Phone and Text Game Advice Ranked
|By Angel Donovan|
|(Updated May 26, 2013 7:00 AM PDT)|
Dating coaches jumped on the topic to bring out a lot of advice on helping men to improve their texting and phoning women skills - and ultimately make sure that phone numbers you collect from women turn into dates and meet ups rather than frustration from girls not answering your calls and messages.
From just a couple of advice products at the start of 2010, the range of advice you could choose from shot up to 23 titles just by the end of 2011! And then late comers have continued to bring out their products since then...
That's plenty to choose from. But beware. A lot of the texting women / phoning women guides have rehashed material from other products, and others provide low quality advice that is more likely to cause you more frustration than help you as you'll see from our editor's reviews and rankings. Our editor ratings range all the way from Poor right up to Excellent.

OK product, but a little too 'thrown together' to be great.

Ultimate Texting Guide
"Disappointing. Doesn't Live Up to it's Purpose or Title."
The ultimate texting guide doesn't hit the spot. It is really cheap at under $15, but that isn't going to help you.
It packages a lot of generic, and sometimes dated, dating advice. However it doesn't really offer much pure advice on texting.
So it ends up being not very good at anything. Read full review
Background Introduction into Texting and Phoning WomenIf you are new to the whole texting and phoning women thing, take a moment to read through this introduction before you check out the rankings and reviews. It explains the background behind text and phone game, how the advice aims to help you and the specific skills products in this area focus on helping you build. So, you meet a girl and you fall in love. Or at least feel kind of attracted to her. You want to see her again, so you do what any aspiring lover does - you take her phone number.
And here starts a really huge misconception among men today. That the phone number is a big deal. In this day and age it isn't.
Men, like Paul Janka have demonstrated through empirical field testing that getting HUGE piles of women's phone numbers is really not a big deal. Janka's industrial approach of getting a phone number in a few minutes led him to collect well over 2,000 numbers from gorgeous women at his own estimates. That does not mean that all of the numbers came to anything. In Janka's case his approach leads to meeting around 25% of those women again. And he has a reputation as a competent dating coach.
For less experienced men the situation is much harder. They may have got very few women's numbers and met relatively few. Their number to meet 'conversion rate' is often as bad as 5% or a lot less (that's 20 numbers for every 1 girl you end up meeting again). The difference between meeting a woman again after getting her phone number or not is called "Flaking". Or otherwise known as a woman "Flaking on you".
This basically means she stops returning your messages, phone calls and/ or doesn't turn up to a planned date with you - with the end result that she doesn't end up in some kind of romance with you. Yes, that's right, for romance, you have to meet again :)
So, "Flaking" has been found to be HUGE. It's a sticking point for many men, and so it was unsurprising to see that many of the dating coaches brought out their own guides to help you navigate the subject and prevent the girl 'flaking on you'.
So, get one thing straight. The purpose of getting a girl's phone number is to meet her again and as a consequence create an opportunity for romance and attraction to develop. That's it. If you don't meet the girl again, that phone number is completely worthless to you. You've wasted your time.
With this in mind if you wanted to learn how to not waste your time and make that number of that beautiful girl amount to something whose advice should you follow? Check out the rankings above and delve into the reviews to find out...
