  • Tried and Failed to Find Mystery Wine Lady
    I know this was a scam, but I spooked them (or broke the bot?) before I heard their plan. I did a reverse image search, and I found nothing. I looked at the metadata on the image, but I saw nothing useful. I looked up the number and found out it was a virtual number from I didn't know what to do after that, so I just reported the number to bandwidth. Source: 4 months ago
  • Recommendations on SIP providers that also offer hosted Direct Routing
    I wanted to add a secondary provider though with Direct Routing for fail over but was looking for recommendations. I'm in Canada so prefer someone with a Canadian POP but not mandatory. I also prefer self-signup when possible, similar to Telnyx, Flowroute etc. I was checking as I see they do this but it doesn't let you sign up and wants you to contact sales. That's fine and I was planning on... Source: about 1 year ago
  • Troubleshooting Porting Errors
    You can pop your area code and prefix in the link below and see what providers do have a presence. Obviously, Sprint/T-Mobile will be one of them but if you don't see then you're out of luck and there are no workarounds. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Understanding E911 and dispatchable location.
    Your provider should be able to provide a short code (e.g. '933' if using that will read out the e911 information for the number calling. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Idk if im being scammed or im just stupid plz help
    While I think you have your answer, another way to validate a number is to use and check the phone number. From that you can often tell if it is a "web only" number that a scammer outside the US would use. For example, it might belong to or google voice. If it does belong to you can report it to them, and they are really fast at cancelling scammers. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Varying results when testing attestation
    202-539-1419 - says attestation B signed by Source: over 1 year ago
  • Track down scammers using shelf company? probably has a list of companies that resell the service somewhere online. Have you ever tried using google dorks before? Google dorks can really help you when you're looking for information. for example lets say you wanted to search only and you wanted to look for contact info (just as an example) then you would type the following into google intext:contact <----...

  • Could someone else activate the SIM for me while I'm abroad?
    I get what you're saying, but it only works depending on the error you receive. The error I received won't allow it in this way. Your solution would be a good option for someone coming from an (originally) incompatible carrier or from a landline. But my problem is my phone number's 1000s block. The back-end service provider for Google Voice, Numberbarn, Callcentric, and TextNow are all the same: Source: over 1 year ago
  • Possible scam call? My BP is high and my anxiety is horrible now. :(
    Ok so I just used the site the automod provides - and it shows the 386 is from and from Jax Florida. The 888 # doesn't really give much tho. Source: over 1 year ago
  • What scam is this and how do they know MY name (Selena) and are using it?
    I have found that if you use to find out who the number provider is, you can then use the abuse page of the provider to report the spam scam. I have been pleasatnly surprised by how responsive is with such abuse reports. In one instance they reported back to me in about 4 hours: "The account reported has been disabled for a one-time violation.". Source: over 1 year ago
  • How is Visible possibly owned and backed by VZW with this poor level of Customer Service
    GV numbers are And are are VOIP. Not mobile numbers. Confirmed via as carrier on every one I try, 35 in total. All various area codes. Various account ages. (business account and usage). Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is virtual SIP Trunk not a thing?
    Yes, you need twilio or or something along those lines. Source: over 1 year ago
  • How to do a Pro Se Subpoena for violating a Stalking Protection Order?
    I have an Ex-Parte Civil Stalking Protection Order against a person and they continue to call and text me under different telephone numbers. I have tracked down that the numbers are from hosts some of their own numbers, but is also a behind-the-scenes provider for a number of "burner" apps, where you can sign up for a number and then dump it shortly thereafter and get a new one. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Is Google Voice expiring numbers fast or what?
    If you dont feel comfy with the roll-your-own approach, I rec. as a way to get a low-cost voip number ($3/mo). They have a full voice/sms implementation which works really well/reliably from my experience and your phone number is, as I understand it, hosted by Just like any other provider its associated with the address/name they have on file and you can set a port-out pin.

  • Verizon vs T-Mobile for Voice Quality
    Yes,; I'm very familiar with the company, which is also one of the largest Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) in the country. They also supply phone number hosting and some of the telephone call handling for Google Voice. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • dropping calls
    Just an FYI, is currently having incoming call issues. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Any (cheap) US cell phone companies that allow you to recieve texts while out of the us?
    I think it may depend on what carrier Google sourced your number from. Mine have come from who is typically a business carrier so BoA can't risk blocking businesses. Source: about 2 years ago
  • How to vet POT SDs?
    I (21F) have been on SA for years as a SB, off and on, and have talked to a few men but haven't met up with anyone. I've now decided that I'm ready to bite the bullet and start an actual SR, especially after finding lots of helpful information on this sub. I've been talking to a guy from the site, and we're trying to plan a M&G. Before the date of our M&G, though, I want to see if I can find out more, and I'm... Source: over 2 years ago
  • HELP I want custom number
    If the number belongs to, then it doesn't belong to Verizon, and Verizon simply released their control of the number when the line of service was canceled. That returns it to They then put it into a "cooling off pool" for some unknown number of months, before they then return it to their pool of available numbers. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Moving abroad for good - Google Fi/Voice question
    You lose the data portion of Fi since Voice is a telephony only service and it's with a different carrier ( vs TMobile). Source: over 2 years ago
