Can you go to jail if you prank call people ?

Though unlikely, if certain things are said it is possible that Jail-time may be cast upon you.

If the person getting the call wants to claim harassment, you CAN get arrested. You may not do jail time but you would get a record.

ahhh, the term 'trouble' sounded like someone might get a 'talking to' instead of possibly arrested!

If the call threatens anyone, yes. If the call is traced, you could be arrested if the content of your call was harmful too. You may not stay in jail, but you would get a record which could harm your future. Is it worth pranking someone? I don't think so.

It depends on the call and who you call. If you keep calling the same person, that would be harassment and you could get into legal trouble. You could also get into trouble if the calls are threatening.

Yes you can be charged with harassment or worse depending on the specifics related to the calls.

I doubt it. It would be helpful if there was a sentence for bugging people with stupidity but so far there is no such thing.
