In this article we will talk about SMS spoofing. SMS means "Short messaging service" and is the protocol cell phones use to send text messages to eachother. In other words SMS is your technical name for text messaging. To spoof means to appear from somewhere or someone else than the original and true number so basically by spoofing a SMS message the receiver of it will not know it is from you and basically you can make it appear to come from any number you want. Use your imagination with this one because it is quite fun. The real problem is that they usually cannot respond to your message as most of the SMS spoofing services are offered online. If you want them to be able to respond I would suggest using a fake email to send them a SMS message and then they can respond and you can talk back and forth with the cell phone you are sending messages to.
So in order to spoof a SMS message we need some providers that can spoof the message for us. Remember not to use this illegaly as I am sure your IP address is logged in their records for use should you do something illegal. If you wish to remain completely anonymous you can use a CGI Proxy to spoof your IP address or use a separate program so they will not have your real IP address. For information on CGI Proxies and spoofing your IP address look to that section on this page.
Here are some SMS spoofing services that you can use for free:
There are others if you do a google search and look around for a bit.
Now the other way to do this is with a temporary of separate email than yours. You will send the message to their cell phone and they will see the email but not know who's it is. How do you send a SMS to a phone number you are asking. Well it is pretty simple actually. It all depends on their provider. This requires you to know their cell phone provider. If it is verizon for example you would send the message to firstname.lastname@example.org and the first part is their number followed by the providers texting service address. By doing this they can respond to the message sent and you can have a conversation. Below are listed the different providers services you would send the message to.
Virgin mobile: email@example.com
And this is the simple way to spoof SMS.
