If you’re someone who has to make loads of international calls, we understand how expensive that can be. But don’t worry, because we’ve brought the best alternative for you. International calls can be costly, but they don’t have to be. With the Text Me mobile app, you can get a number for the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, and many more countries at an extremely low cost!
All that you have to do is to choose a country, choose a phone number from the three options offered, and pay the subscription fees. Don’t worry; the fee is much more affordable than the average cost of your international calls on an average.
You can text, audio, or video call anyone you want. For all intents and purposes, your Text Me number can be used as a burner phone number for international calls, as it also keeps your identity private.
Moreover, it can turn your phone into a fully-functional device, even if it doesn’t have a phone plan. Isn’t that cool?
How to Find Who Owns Text Me Number
Let’s say you’ve made a new Text Me account to contact your friends and family. However, instead of having the jolly time you thought you would, you’re instead being bothered by a random stranger.
Don’t worry; it happens to almost everyone. The best way to go about this is to block this person and move on with your life. After all, why should you let such a minor inconvenience put a hold on your everyday routine?
Here’s how to block someone on the Text Me app
Step 1: Launch the Text Me app on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see five icons. Tap on the third one, called Inbox.
Step 3: Go to your chats with the person who’s threatening you. You’ll see the three dots icon at the top right corner of the screen. Tap on it.
Step 4: From the drop-down menu that appears, tap on the fourth option that says Block/Report spam.
Step 5: On the confirmation message that appears, you’ll also get the option of reporting them as spam, and the box will already be ticked. Tap the box to unselect the option, then tap the Block button.
There you go. Now you know how to block someone on Text Me.
Even if you’re of the opinion that confrontation is key, how will you confront them, anyway? Text Me is a burner phone equivalent to smartphones; everyone is anonymous unless they wish not to be.
Well, we’re sorry to say there’s no way for you to find out who’s using a Text Me number except for asking them point blank. And if they’re threatening or harassing you, we don’t think there’s a possibility that they’ll reveal their true identity to you.
There is one way you could find out the identity of someone on Text Me, but when you read about it, you’ll realize that it really isn’t a way. The process is a bit lengthy, so please bear with us.
Many people on the internet claim that if you are being bothered by an anonymous person, you should go to court and law enforcement for help. Ah, if only it were that easy.
Let’s say you’re being harassed online by a stranger on the Text Me app. They claim to have your personal and workplace address and threaten to break in. One approach to this is requesting security, which is understandable.
However, hypothetically, you could also go into court and ask the judge for subpoenas for the Text Me headquarters to find out where this person lives.
Let’s say that the judge agrees and grants you the subpoenas, which isn’t likely to happen. You take those subpoenas and travel to the state where the platform’s headquarters are located.
When you go in there with a court-issued subpoena, the employees might just let you in. However, they don’t have any address records of the users. All they’ll have is their IP address, which you’ll have to make do with.
You might’ve heard that IP addresses can be used to track someone, but it’s nothing more than a myth. IP addresses are fickle numbers that can change in seconds. However, let’s just say you decide to press on.
The IP address will take you to the Internet Service Provider Company headquarters of the person you’re trying to track down. And again, to get into those headquarters, you need a court-issued subpoena.
Since we’re talking hypothetically, let’s say you manage to get this subpoena as well. No ISP Company will be willing to hand over any of their clientele’s personal information. Such an act could seal their reputation as an untrustworthy service for life.
But even if they give you the address, it won’t be entirely accurate. As we said, IP addresses are fickle; they change every time you turn your router on or off and connect your smartphone to a different network. So there’s no way for you to ever be sure that you’ll find the person you’re looking for.
In the end, you’ll have wasted more than a year of your life waiting for court dates and arguing with people over something extremely insignificant.
Do you really think that this is the best way to get rid of an anonymous stalker?
Try asking around
Numerous victims and instances say that whenever you have a personal stalker situation like the one we described, it’s almost always someone close. They might be jealous of you, like you, hate you, or try to mess with you.
Check out which one of your close family members and friends happens to use Text Me. We’re sure you won’t have to look much more after that.
In the end
As we end this blog, let us recap all that we’ve talked about today.
A Text Me number is a modern equivalent of a burner phone. You can make international calls for an extremely low cost, along with features like video calls and texting. It isn’t possible to find out who’s behind a Text Me number unless they tell you themselves because Text Me keeps you anonymous.
You could go for the legal way, but it is more time-consuming and hassling than you’d ever think and unnecessary. All you need to do is block the user, try finding the culprits among your friends and family, and even stay with your loved ones for a little while. We’re sure it’ll all go away.
