Does anyone know if there is a way to find out where a Nextel text message is coming from without relying on Nextel? They are not very helpful and
have no sense of urgency.
I have had a unit turned in at work that was a direct connect only (though there is always a phone number attached to the unit for text messaging),
and began receiving messages a few weeks ago. They have become disturbing (it was issued to a young woman).
Of course we could change the phone number attached to the unit, but I want to confirm first that this is some sort of bizarre spam, as oppossed to
coming from someone local who may actually know this woman, since if it is from someone who may actually know her, she may be in danger (being
stalked). I really don't think we can wait 30 days for Nextel to get back to us on this.
I activated two-way messaging on it in the hopes that it would help us see where it was coming from, but it's not showing anything identifiable.
The messages started out with just benign quotes, but now have taken a sexual tone and are coming in more frequently, at any and all hours of the day
& night. I really need some way to confirm they are not coming from someone who may actually know her.
