??? like to make it look like a text message is coming from someone else?
Yes. It works particularly well if the person you're texting already has the phone number that you'll be "texting from" in their phonebook in their phone...because then the actual name of that person appears as the texter.
I've only done it on Verizons network, using Verizon's website.
You simply enter your callback number and "from" number as the number of the person you want to make it appear as though is texting.
If it's a different network, simply do this:
Put a fake number in your phone, and label it in your phonebook "test".
Then, use any of the web texting services on the web to text yourself, and enter that fake phone number as the callback number & name of the person texting.
If/when it shows up in your phone as receiving a text from "test" then you know you've got it right.
coool. will try it.
It is disgusting how easy it is to spoof the "sender" of SMS.
I have created so much havoc between friends and family using this method.
Keep in mind, that while you can spoof the "sender" tag, if you get into legal trouble, it is easy to prove the "ACTUAL" sender of the message. Unless you take correct steps.
I have a sms gateway for some of my projects, sometimes i use it for fun aswell. I can customize the "sender" so the whoever is reciving the message is seeing the sender i put in. Sometimes i'm having putting in "Police" "mom" or whatever i feel like doing.
Separate names with a comma.
