I was helping a friend out who didn't speak English very well on the phone and I told him I would
pass off as/pass for him in order to solve his problem with his phone company. I'm not sure if what I said is very natural and usable. So I'm here to ask you guys what should I say when telling someone that I will pretend to be them.

pass for your friend would be to successfully impersonate that person; to try to do this would be to pass yourself off as your friend.
