Electrocution Prank!

Do you want to play a prank on your friends?  Here are instructions on how to make people think your iPhone has given them an electric shock!

1. Take a screen shot of a background on your iPhone e.g. Home screen, Lock Screen etc…  Press and hold the Home button, and press the Sleep button. This will add a screen shot to your ‘Photos’ library.  Screen shot tutorial on YouTube

4. Press the Photo button and press “Choose Photo”.

5. The Photo library will be displayed – find and select your screen shot.

    To take a picture of your homescreen just press and hold the home button, then press the sleep button. It will add a photo to the Photos application

    I reported a problem with the phone trick app and then visited this site! My question was quickly answered; your instructions were concise and easy to follow! Thanks for a very cool little app!

    Just press and hold for about a second and at the same time press the sleep button

  13. jackeveritt June 11, 2010 at 8:36 pm

    The sleep button is on the top left of the iPhone and iPod

  14. jackeveritt June 11, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    You only need to press and hold for the time it takes you to also press the sleep button.

    Just purchased your app and I was trying to do the home screen trick. Just one problem, I’ve got an iPad so how do I take a picture of my screen on this device?

  16. jackeveritt September 16, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    You do the same procedure on iPad as you do on iPhone/iPod

    Press and hold the Sleep button then immediately press the Home button.

    The screen shot will be store in your Photos app.
