Tracking TXT Messages with AT&T Mobile Phones


Recommended Posts

If your friend has an AT&T phone and she is texting another AT&T number using a text free app, can the person receiving the messages from the the text free app call AT&T and find out who the person is and any previous conversation the person is having pertaining to them with another number?

1 - Can the person receiving the texts call AT&T to track down who is texting them?

Answer - Probably not. If they are using an app to send text messages then the txt messages will show a source of that Free App application vs. the senders mobile number. Does the Free App not forward the Mobile # that is sending the messages?

You might be able to contact the Free App Customer Service and check with them however.

2 - I don't fully understand the second part of your question however I think you are asking if AT&T can help track them down and give you information about who else the Source is texting.

Answer - I highly doubt it. I cannot imagine AT&T giving you any information other than what they might have for your phone only. Anything additional regarding the Source could be a privacy violation.

      Hey, Martin's earlier question inspired one of my own --how do you get screen captures in windows phone 7? Doesn't seem tobe anyway to do this natively, but is there a hack?

      I've been using OurGroceries to keep grocery lists organized with my wife's iphone and my iPhone. But I feel like there has to be something better and for free. Any good free grocery list iOS apps out there?

      I bought the first iPhone 3G eons ago and I've been buying apps for it since day 1. My wife bought an Android and I love it however before I make the plunge I want to see if there is anyway I can get my games installed on a droid from my iphone.
      Any hacks out there?

      I want an Android phone but don't wanna shell out big bucks. I keep seeing commercials for the Boost Android phone, but is it the same thing as like, a Samsung Galaxy S? Should I even bother getting this phone? Will the data plan be expensive? Can I get apps?
