One more thing. These messages have no number associated with them.

In the UK the mobile phones usually have numbers that are set up "07XXX XXXXXX" (replace the 'x' with a number).

When looking at the details of the messages, the phone simply gives me the date the message was sent (31st December 1962 at 23:59hrs), the date that my phone received the messages and then where a mobile number would normally be listed, the message says one of two things; either "Annonymous" or "Number not listed".

I have been in touch with my provider and they cannot shed any light on it. Their records apparently do not show any text messages being sent to the phone on given dates and times, they are also at a loss to explain the curious dates shown on the messages, and quite frankly, so am I...

An adendum to last post... (and a correction).

The date listed above is incorrect (as in my first post) the date is 31st December 1969... I am sure I will be labelled a 'hoaxer' for this discrepancy.

One more thing, I have tried to rearrange the letters in the messages into a word by writting them all down, and seeing what they make, to no avail. The messages seem to be complete jibberish.

I will post a photograph of the phone displaying one of the messages within the next couple of hours, to see if anyone can make any more sense of this.

Well, I think you'll forgive me if i'm jumping to conclusions here but...

I'm smelling a rat here, and i'll explain why...

It has nothing to do with the actually subject or content of your post, but what i do find unusual, is the fact that your writing style seems very similar to another contraversial poster of late - namely 'BoulderMD'.

Having analyzed your prose and syntax, there appear to be a great many similarities between the two authors.

Couple that together with the fact that BOTH you AND boulderMD registered on ATS on exactly the same day, and opened your post with grammer to the effect of "I'm new here, and i'm not sure how this will be accepted by you, but here goes"...kind of thing.

Couple that with the fact that BOTH posts concern predictions and portens from the future, or of events located in a future time stream.

Suspect, to me at least.

We may be conspiracy theorists, but most of us here DO NOT take the word of anyone, without a critical eye.

Conspiracy theorists does not equal gullible idiot. In most cases, the exact opposite is true- meaning we research what peaks our interest, instead of accepting or believing something, just because someone (especially a 'stranger') says something is so.

If i'm right about you, get a life, and give people on here more credit for a higher IQ. If i'm wrong, well, apologies but that's the breaks with unsubstanciated claims mate.

Spikey.

Spikey,

That does not explain why I am getting messages from the DISTANT PAST (i.e. 1969). I presume that you will do me the courtesy of at least acknowleding that these messages are certainly curious?

100,000 cell number picked for random tracking.

I was watching the news today and I think I know what this may be. I too have received strange phone numbers with no call backs etc.. CNN reported that there has been cell phone tracking going on in Europe by randomly calling 20 subjects picked for the test\ study. Random numbers used were tracked in other countries according to the report. But that it was not going on here in the U.S. The Video report did not disclose the cell carrier that is doing this though. From what I understand it’s tracking from just dialing a number from their data base with an unknown number one you could not call back too, also included text messages. I’m not making this up either . check out CNN Link below From the report it said this was not going on in the U.S A. but they just described what everyone here has been saying on the board. Also I noticed that the website content has changed from the actual video footage on television. IE, That this was not going on in other countries. It also stated in the video report on TV that the numbers used you could not be called back to. It seems to have been omitted from the website footage. Hmm wonder why? also some other content is missing than what was in the footage. the story has changed a little.
Found a link to CNN check it out.
www.cnn.com...

ok now see this is WEIRD, and it quite frankly makes me a bit angry, and makes the suspicious part of me wonder why CNN is even releasing this story, as vague as it is now? grrrrrrrrrrrrr...

oh and thank you.

Me, Spikey?

Omygosh no. Pardon me, but I'm laughing here because I'm following that story too and have made a few comments on BoulderMD's writing style.

I have to admit that his story is fascinating, and that I'm sort of almost wishfully thinking that maybe these two things really are connected and that the great discovery includes communications from the future.

This actually did happen to me Saturday, May 24. I will take a pic of my cell phone tonight or will gladly forward the message to anyone who wants it...PM me your number (but I'm new here and am not sure I know how to even use PM or U2U or whatever it is or if I'm eligible yet).

P.S. I'm not "new" new here...I simply had to make a new name because for some reason, ATS didn't recognize my email when I forgot my password. I got yelled at for my avatar once when it had a middle finger
And even thought I'm not new new, I didn't post much. I mostly read.

and p.p.s. i resent being called a rat.

Ok so thats all good an all, but this phone stuff(not exact) has happened to me...i had a phone samsung d900, and because i was going to play "soccer" i turned my phone off because then if people ring it goes straight to voicemail...anyway i had turned my phone off played the game an was on my way home, an then all of a sudden my phone started to ring, i thought nothing of it due to the fact my phone always rings but when i looked it was still turned off so i was lookin at it for a while an then iit stopped, so i turned it on an there where no missed calls so i turned it off to see if it would happen again and that night about 3 hours later it did an i tried to answer an couldnt because the phone was off, it hasnt happened since but i did phone the company that i pay for the phone to and they said there where no record of any calls made to or from my phone that day besides one at 11.59am (my brother)...an now reading this im begining to think there was something more to it, i thought it was a faulty cell/mobile phone but i got it checked an it cleared so i never thought much of it.

That was a publicity stunt to get people to watch it! I think that maybe the text message could of got lost in a satelite maybe through a black hole...
(Just a thought!)


that was my first thought too. that it was just a communications mixup. then i found all the other calls (not that many but enough and space pretty far apart in date) and saw the pattern and got more curious.

it could still be a glitch in some code somewhere i suppose that only fires under certain circumstances.

i still find that odd article saying next to nothing that someone posted here is...well...odd. why bother as there's no real substance there.

My friend recieved a blank text message last night. The number was 514.901.0841. We decided to call and see who it was, but it said the number was not assigned. The date it was sent is December 5th, 2019... (it ended with a 19). It was sent at 11:59 pm.

Not all text messages have a number associated to them. Some cellphone operators or service providers, for example, can send a special text message that has a name (a string of characters) as the sender. However, some phones (like Apple iPhone) can't receive such messages, but most others can. These messages are sent without using a phone, directly from the operator's computerized system which is a very complex assembly.

If the name to be shown is totally left blank by the system that creates the special message, or if it is replaced by some non-visible characters, the sender field appears to be empty. If, for some reason, the sender's system (or at least some critical computer in the network operator's chain) has an incorrect date set to it, it could appear in the receiving phone as well.

The reason for an incorrect date combined with an empty sender field could be a deliberate prank by someone who's working for the service provider, but most likely it is some weird software bug that occurs only rarely in very certain circumstances, and thus was not detected when the system was designed.

it happened to me the other night.

Hmm it might be a marketing ploy for the movie you mention, or...and I know this seems a stretch...SPAM! The date being wrong seems pretty irrelevant. One of the many glitches in our fuzzy technological world.

I received a message like this but mine was dated like this 02/14/71 and time stamped 11:48 am even though I received it at 10:30 pm. That was weird enough but the next day -- and I'm not joking when I tell you this -- the date and time change on the text to 03/06/71 and was time stamped 1:01 am. I don't know what time it changed because I didn't notice it someone else did who was looking at the text and had seen it the night before dated something else. Also, the number was 435-901-0341 (I think) I don't have the phone right now to confirm it my daughter does but I know it was a 901 number. But, it did go to someone who lived about 400 miles away from me and when I called him he had no idea what I was talking about and I could just tell he was absolutely clueless as to what I was talking about.

So this is really freakin' me out. Can someone please tell me what's going on? My email is traciesullivan@msn.com

Thanks,
Tracie

is it possible that the phone has a glitch? and with the popular-tools theory, i'd have to say that it is illogical considering that A) how in god's name would they orchestrate a time-warping text message? cell phones send information through waves. unless they somehow found a way to move the waves through a time warp or anomaly in the space-time continuum, it would be improbable that such a feat could be possible. i'm not ruling out a paranormal explanation but empty text messages from the future versions of us is a bit absurd. maybe it's a ghostly phenomenon. might i turn you onto the case about a widower receiving messages from his late betrothed?


www.cellular-news.com...

now, the numbers here could hold a vast number of meanings. for example, the date could be the day that you die. it could be a day that will forever change your life. maybe the date of an important historical event. who knows? i honestly do not believe this belongs in General Conspiracies. try looking under Ghosts and stuff. maybe more people will see it and be able to give you a glimpse at the right answer if not the answer in it's entirety.

thank you for the time. (heheh i made a pun ROTFLMFAO)

Hi Lucidity,

I use a Sony Ericsson z750i - I was able to send myself a blank message using the date 17-Jul-2019 - just my going into my phones time & date setting menu and making adjustments.

Perhaps you case of the mystery text from 2019 is just a case of someone being a smartass and masking their proper number & getting a thrill out or knowing they are freaking people out sending blank texts from the future to random people?

I had a friend back in high school that would call a random number from his home phone (both international & local - he would just hit random numbers) and try to strike up conversation with the person who answered.. he had great stories about conversations with scotsmen and annoyed Americans that he woke up...

My best guess? A 14 year old boy who has worked out to do some tricky things with his phone and is having a laugh with his mates.

Certainly sounds interesting...

Is the area code valid? Where is it relative to YOUR geographic location? Is it local or miles away?

Unless you send a text message through a free web service, I don't think you can hide your number when sending a text message from a regular mobile phone (even if you set the option to mask your caller ID).

Looking forward to your photos of the messages.
