If you’ve had the same phone number for a while, you may have gotten different messages, especially from numbers you don’t know. When you try to call back an unknown number, however, you might get a voicemail that says “the text mail subscriber is not available.” You won’t get any answers sometimes.
Some users have asked what a “text mail subscriber” is and what it has to do with scams. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about people who sign up to get text messages. Learn more by reading this guide.
What is a subscriber to Text Mail?
Text mail subscribers are people who have signed up to receive only text mail. Most of the time, these messages and calls are made and sent using internet phone services instead of a regular phone number or phone.
When you reply to these messages, the person who sent them will get an email about it. As we’ve already said, you’ll only get a voicemail response if you call a number that belongs to someone who gets text mail.
How do services for text mail work?
Text mail services work by calling apps like Google Voice or TextNow that let you use your phone number to make calls. Since these calls are made using your IP address, you can’t answer them. Text mail subscribers are used by companies or marketing firms to make calls or send offers without asking for a callback.
Can You Find Out Who Signed Up for Text Mail?
You can find them, but it depends on what kind of internet phone service they are using. It’s also hard to find a specific number because these apps give numbers to subscribers at random.
But if you want to know if a text mail subscriber is a scam or not, here are some things you can do:
Method 1: Use Google or another search engine to find them.
Searching for a text mail subscriber’s number on Google and other search engines is a quick way to find out who they are. You can easily search to see if their number is linked to websites, forums, communities, or social media platforms.
Method 2: Use apps that track phone numbers
Mobile number-tracking apps are another way to keep track of people who sign up for text mail. The directories of these apps hold thousands of phone numbers, which is how they work. If someone else looked up the same number in their database, it’s likely that you can find it too, along with their name.
These apps are not free, though. You may have to pay for a subscription or licence to use them.
Method 3: Text or call the number.
If none of these work, your last option is to text or call the number of the person who signed up for text mail. So, you’ll get the information you want straight from the sender. But this can be risky because you can’t check if their answers are right, especially if you can’t see them on Google or other search engines.
Also, if you talk to a number you don’t know, don’t give out private information like your current location, billing information, etc. Use a different phone number to call them so you don’t get doxxed or tracked.
One Last Thing
Every day, when you use your phone, you’ll get different text messages. You may also get text messages from people who have signed up for text mail. These numbers use internet phone services to send news, calls, and voicemails. This guide should help you learn more about people who sign up for text mail and how to keep track of them.
