I was wondering if there was an easy way to do a voice over of a phone call with it actually sounding like someone on the phone instead of just a voice over?

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.
Downsampling it to 8KHz will get you most of the way toward that telephone sound.
Then, to get even closer, use a band pass filter to knock out everything below about 500Hz and above 2000Hz (you can find an example of using Audacity’s equalizer to do this here).
Here’s a demo with the full effect. (Same recording, I didn’t feel like making a second, more-descriptive one. :-) )
(For whatever reason, my copy of Chrome glitches a bit while playing these back. Not sure why. Other programs handle them fine.)
