    I'm looking for a tool or the most efficient way to get a list of everyone that texts a number. I just need a phone number provider and all those numbers that text it in a txt file basically. Paid or free doesn't matter, I need this service.

    Many ways to go about this.
    Do you have a real phone that receives messages or is it a virtual number / DID? Do you have prior programming experience?
    You can go look around twilio.com, they offer different Calling/Messaging services, but they are quite expensive.

    Can give you a tip or two, but you need to be more specific.

    I'd rather do it with virtual number. I'm not signed up to one yet.

    I know some php and javascript, mostly tweaking websites.

    is twillo just an API? I dont actually need to send out messages. Just collect the numbers from people who text me, so that would be really cheap right?

    what kind of programming would I need to do with twillo? I'd rather have to do 0 programming if possible but if there's no other way, i'll do it.
