Your question is not very clear. From what I am reading, it seems that you want to make a phone call from your computer? – francisswest Oct 25 '12 at 18:18
@francisswest I want to have anonymity my cellphone through something like a proxy, and my computer register the information... – poz2k4444 Oct 25 '12 at 18:21
Just curious...Why? – francisswest Oct 25 '12 at 18:24
@francisswest I'm from Mexico, as you know, insecurity is a real issue here, so I'd like to know if it's possible in order to have anonymity when I call – poz2k4444 Oct 25 '12 at 18:28
Any time you connect to a network, that can be seen. Even if you're on a VPN, with encrypted traffic, it can be seen what you're connecting to, even if the traffic itself is secure. Skype behind Tor is probably a reasonable idea, but your ISP will see that you're connecting to Tor. – user3463 Oct 25 '12 at 21:09

Why don't you just use an app like Skype and use a VPN or set a proxy?

You can run the call on your WiFi and use Wireshark to trace the info of the call. Or set your computer as the cellphone's access point and use a proxy for your PC. To hide yourself online even more, change your UserAgent ID.

I typed this and saw the "no smartphone" part, so ignore if this offers no help. It won't be possible on a normal cell.

well, I saw something like type "*67" before the number, and it apparently works, but here in my country, I cannot make these kind of phone calls, skype could be a good option – poz2k4444 Oct 25 '12 at 18:42
Yes just remember that skype will also only be safe encrypted and using a proxy maybe... And the people you are hiding from cant be on your network else it is VERY easy to catch the packets and listen in on the conversation. – Rudi Oct 25 '12 at 18:53
Why do you think Skype is secure? It is proprietary, owned by a corporation. – AnonymousLurker Oct 25 '12 at 23:29
It is not that skype is so secure , but it rather sounds like he is trying to not be detected by another person or within mexico. I really doubt microsoft is listening in on every skype conversation if you meant that. – Rudi Oct 26 '12 at 8:29
