Question: Are there services on the internet that offer a cell phone number to receive text?

I need a cell phone number to receive only one text.

Are there services on the internet that offer a cell phone number to receive text for free?

Country of the cell phone number does not matter.

PS: If you don't know and don't think it's possible I don't care about your reasons why it's not possible.

Preferred Solution: Are there services on the internet that offer a cell phone number to receive text?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey,

Is there any free website or program or anything which can generate a cellphone number for me so I can give it out and receive text messages on my computer, without having to give out my real cell number? Giving out an email address wont work for this, it needs to be a cell number. Thanks for the help

I do all my work calls through my cell phone. Is it possible to highlight a phone number and then right click it and have it dialed through my cell phone? My cell phone and laptop are recognized via bluetooth, seems like this would've been a feature well before now.
It would be nice if it would be functional from Outlook emails or even webpages for businesses or candidates.
Thanks!

I have a cricket wireless A300 cell phone and I want to sell it. I posted it up on ebay and someone bought it, but when I got it ready for packaging I realized I could still send and receive text. Cricket will not let me turn the phone off because my account is already suspended and they said there is nothing they can do unless I pay my bill. I'm not paying a bill and buying a new phone. If there is anything someone can help me do I would surely appreciate it. I just want the phone to not be able to get any service so I can ship it to my buyer.

Answer:can I use my cell phone number to send fax

I'd be willing to say no. There are companies that can allow one to send a fax to that company and then you can retrieve it over the internet. Also places like kinko's may be able to provide that service locally.Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Answer:Change number on cell phone using photoshop

I'm not quite sure what you're getting at with your question. Are you referring to spoofing, whereby someone can hide their true telephone number, or are you referring to a screenshot of someone's cell phone that's been manipulated? Bear in mind: PhotoShop deals solely with graphics editing.

I have windows 8 phone dual sim, when I receive a call the number is displayed but the name of the caller is not displayed on my phone screen

Answer:I have windows 8 phone, when I receive call only number is displayed and name does not show

Welcome to Windows Central.
Is that caller in your contacts? The way that caller ID works is that only the number is displayed for a caller not in your contacts. If the caller is in your contacts, then you should see his/her name, unless he/she chooses to not display his/her caller ID information on his/her end.

Hi,

I'm not sure where else to post this but I figured that here would be the best place.

I need to trace a number that is listed as "restricted" on my caller ID of my cell phone.

Is this at all possible to do? Would the carrier I go through (Verizon) be able to do this for me?

The situation is that I'm being harassed by this person. At first he only called at night. Now he's calling me in the morning and at work. I have a hunch that this person works where I do but in another department. However since I have no proof of this I don't think I can mention this to the proper authorities here just yet. He did leave a very inappropriate voice mail the first time he called but since then he hasn't left a voice mail. I deleted the voice mail figuring it might have been some prank call but the calls have since kept on coming. I do not answer them and have hoped that they would give up. But the calls have been getting more and more frequent and as of today are now coming in while I'm at work.

Even if you don't know the answers if you know of any resources I can consult that would be very helpful too.

Thank you all for your help,

JFresh

Recently my Brother tried sending 8 pictures to me and my other two Brothers, yes there are four of us.

Brother sending pic's is using; A 4S iphone w/ ATT but says, "that's never mattered before".

My wife and I have Verizon and I never received the text message to my LG_VN150 phone I can receive and send, but it costs me.

He then sent the text to my wife's' cell phone a Galaxy S3 and she never received them. And, finally to our gmail account, four of the pic's for a total of 443KB made it, the other four were replaced with:

The total of all eight (about 1MB) should not have exceeded attachment limits for our email. I have asked him to download the pic's to his desk or laptop and send them to see if we can isolate the problem to his 4S.

Of the other two Brothers one did not receive any, I'm not sure of his equipment or plan; and one had no problem and received all eight, I believe he also has ATT.
I'm thinking some protocol with the Brothers 4S ATT text messaging is overriding the pic's but I haven't found anything on it yet and would like to know if any other members have any thoughts on this matter?

Hello. I have a question.

How does one send a text message or e-mail *FROM* a Verizon cell phone or smartphone *TO* a PC's e-mail server (such as G-Mail or Hotmail)? I have seen many online articles and forums indicate the reverse; that is, FROM a PC e-mail client or online webmail TO a Verizon cell phone. (...and the Verizon cell phone or smartphone user *REPLIES BACK* TO the PC user; but the Verizon cell phone or smartphone can NOT initiate a text message or e-mail ON THEIR OWN TO the PC.)

Please reply with solutions or even if possible a stepped answer (1., 2., 3., etc.). A weblink that demonstrates the steps is okay too, but please be careful not to include the inverse or reverse I just mentioned -- that is all I could find.

Also in your response please let me know if some sort of cell phone or smartphone Internet service is required for text messages or e-mails to send and receive too beyond the normal voice service cell phones or smartphones provide.

Thank you!

I am using nokia 730 dual , i have done my address book with the phone numbers with out country code but some times I got massages / phone calls with the country code, for those who are in my contact list with out the country code , those cases phone is not showing the contact name it shows only the number with the country code.
Same thing happen when massage or phone call coming with out the leading zeros also not display the name

Answer:Why are my contacts showing up as only the phone number when I get a text message?

Best way to add a contact is always with the country code, but use the + prefix.
E.g. +44 1212 123123 for UK or +1 123 123 123 for the USA.
The phone will then always make a contact work and display. Unless your local carrier has weird network configuration issues.

I personally use a cable modem with a wireless router to connect my computers and gaming systems to the internet. For some of my games that I play online with my Nintendo Wii I have had problems connecting with my friends online. I read online forums and found that the fix to this problem is for me and my friends have to locate the IP address of our wii, and then go into my router settings and temporarily put the Wii outside of the DMZ while playing the game. I have done this and it works fine.

However I have one friend that uses his cell phone to connect his Nintendo Wii to the internet.

Does anyone know how he can put his Wii console outside of the DMZ using his cell phone. Sorry I don't know what the make and model of his phone is. Does DMZ settings only apply to wireless internet connections? Would using your cell phone to connect to the internet be considered Wired or Wireless internet. Technically there is a cable that runs from the cell phone to the Wii, but i would assume since it is a cell phone it would be considered a Wireless Internet Connection (or Satelitte Internet Connection). I appreciate any advice or suggestions you might have.

Just found out that the phone is a LG Venus and his carrier is Verizon.

If that Helps.

Answer:Internet thru Cell Phone

Well using a Cell Phone would be considered wireless. But i dont think that you can set it outside the DMZ due to the fact that you are not connecting it via a router. It is using the providers service. So i really dont think there is a way to set it up to work like that.

Your best option with that would be to contact the provider and see if there is a way.

Hi DC3,

I tried that last year with lots of problems. You have to have a "data" type connection. Very expensive here vrs standard dial up or even cable modem. They wanted $10/500K downloaded. That would be one night for me. I tried it for a month, but it never connected correctly. That was a year ago so things maybe better now... hopefully cheaper. It was a cool thought, but I opted out.

I'm not much into cell phone tech and am happy with my 300i but it's starting to show it's age. My contract is up too so it's time to replace it. I'm on at&t in Colorado and would change networks but I need to keep the same number (business use). With that in mind I'd like a phone that can access the internet so I can check my gmail and web calendar and also access things that are handy on the road like news, weather and maps etc. I don't text much either. Any additional functionality would be handy like reading ebooks, camera, video etc. I don't particularly care about media like mp3 or video. I never use my current phone for playing mp3s and can't see that changing. I also see my internet usage being quite low so what plan would suit me?

I like the flip phone I have now as it's protected and very small but would like a decent sized screen for browsing. I use an online calendar with my wife so just being able to sync isn't as useful as real time checking of dates (we share a studio and need to check the availability before booking it).

As for cost, lowest possible. I'm not into flashy phones so the latest greatest isn't what I'm after. Tech from a while back would probably suit me fine.

What model/plan in your opinion is the best buy for me?

Answer:How can I get my laptop on the Internet like my cell phone

With mobile phones, you more than likely use a data plan. If you do have a mobile phone that supports using a hotspot, as well your service provider allows it, you could set up the hotspot and connect your laptop to that. I believe it uses your own data though. Many providers as far as I know sell dedicated hotspots that you can purchase plans for.

Basically, should I get a data SIM (more expensive) or a normal (voice) one? Or is it the same from a computer point of view? Obviously I'll check the rates.

Answer:Pre-emptive help with cell phone internet access

The way I understand what you want to do is that you want to have the phone get internet access from your computer? The phone has WiFi.... if the computer is going to connect to the internet with WiFi, then why can't the phone just connect to the same WiFi? Or is your internet connection to the computer going to be by ethernet (wired) only?

If you want the computer to access internet through the phone, then to make the connection between the phone and the computer, I would recommend the EasyTether app. It will connect the computer to the phone either through a USB cable or through bluetooth. EasyTether has worked great for me and does work on Windows 10. Again, if the phone is connected to the internet by WiFi, then the computer should be able to as well. If not, then you will need a data SIM card for the phone.

For about 3 months now my Sanyo SCP-4700 cell phone has been involved with an intermittent problem. When trying to connect to the Internet via Dialer201, a message (Port disconnected due to hardware failure) pops up. After changing ports, port settings, Input/output range settings, and modem settings also memory cards, software (Dialer3), data cables, the problem still persists

When I agreed to a contract with Spinet, in that all calls I make would include data calls, I set up my computer with a clean windows Me image. I then installed Dialer201, then saved this operating system image to two hard drives a CD ROM disk and another storage type disk. At this time I was using a Sprint Quallcomm Kyocera phone.
The Sprint Quallcomm Kyocera phone worked well with this set up and I never had any persistent problem connecting to the Internet. Unfortunately this phone failed after a year and had to be replaced. Like the Kyocera, the Sanyo phone has shown no persistent problem with the operating system I have been using, until three months ago.

In order to remove the possibility that this is a software or an operating system problem, I have restored the original operating system image a number of times and still the problem persists.

When the message; Port disconnected due to hardware failure pops up, the port becomes non active and at this point when trying to connect, Dialer returns message (Could not open Sprint PCS Phone port (COM1)). And from there, the only way to be able to... Read more

I have an LG Alltel AX 490 cell I'm trying to send a Java game to, but I don't have mobile web, which is what all the mobile media uploading websites seem to need. They say to open up your browser and enter a url address. Is there any other way to do this?
 

Answer:Can you upload files to a cell phone without mobile internet?

Offhand, I'd say yes, by using either a USB cable or Bluetooth transfer. But I do not know the specifics of your phone. Look into the phone's documentation.

If your phone uses additional memory, like SD or microSD memory, then you may also be able to use alternate memory reading devices to place the needed files on the memory chip.

Many times the apps and other various files may need to be specifically designated folders to be used. Again, that is something that the documentation should be able to tell you.

Hi Guys,

I have once again run into a problem that seems to plague me and I am at the point where if I can't solve it this time I am going to take a baseball bat and smash my laptop and cell phone into tiny pieces, scatter them around the neighborhood and go out and buy new stuff that actually works and start all over again. Here's the drill:

Laptop: Dell E6501 Latitude
Built in WiFi antennae
running Win 7 Pro with all updates installed

Cell Phone: Samsung Galaxy S3
Has WiFi Mobile HotSpot capability as well as Tethering capability.

I did a search of the archives on this site and per the suggestions just updated the drivers for the WiFi card.

I can activate the Mobile HotSpot function on my cell phone. My laptop sees the SSID for my cell phone but refuses to connect. I get an exclamation point in the system tray over the signal strength that says "no internet access".

This problem has been plaguing me for 5 years. Sometimes I can access the internet from my cell phone via mobile hotspot or tethering and more often than not I can't and I am way beyond fed up. This should not be this hard. If the manufacturers can't make a feature work reliably then they don't need to be putting into a device period!!!!!

Very limited experience with Excel...have a multi page workbook but can't figure out how to auto format existing text to fit in cells so there is no space either on top or bottom of the cell.

Only way I can get this so far is to manually move the bottom line of the text box up to the bottom of the actual text in box. But this causes the print out to overlap sometimes of the text lines in print view.

Is there a way to 'auto-format' individual cells to fit the text in the cell without leaving alot of space above or below the lines, or top/bottom lines, of the cell.

Answer:Having problem setting cell height to fit text in cell

When you are in the cell that you want to align with the top, Right Click & select Format Cells & when that opens Click on the Alignment Tab & then you will see Horizontal & Vertical, click on the Vertical drop down arrow & select Top. That will align the text to the top of the cell & eliminate that space.

When you move to the next cell to insert the Dollar amount it will be lined up with the bottom of the text in the previous cell, which is what you want.

I would think this is easy but I can't figure it out. In a spread sheet I have column A with a number and columns B and C auto populate with text determined by what number was entered in A. What I am wanting to do is format the cells in B to bold only if the number in A is odd. Likewise column C would bold if the number is even.Again this should be easy I would think.

Answer:Bold a cell if another cell is an odd number

I am making a database that imports data from excel files. However, those files are not originally from excel. So, I have to pull data about once a week from a system that saves the files to a format that excel can read, but Access doesn't want to read because it is not in the xml format. I have to convert the data to excel (easy as opening the file in excel and saving it as an xml). I then go into the worksheet and have to change the first row, because it contains repeating data and they need to be unique fields of course. The first row is used as the header information. The first 10 columns A1 -J1 are fine as the data is unique in each. K1 is where the issue begins. K1 contains a year and other text. The following 13 columns L1:X1 contain other text without the year from K1. This repeats at Y1 having a year and the following 13 columns not having a year but having the same text as L1:X1. I need to take the year from K1 (the year will be the first four characters) and insert that year as text into the next 13 columns (as the beginning text of the cell) so they become unique. This needs to happen about 20 times, 2015 - 2035. This is tedious at best doing it by hand, but I have to do it for every piece of data I pull. I could do it by hand once and then copy and paste it into all of the new worksheets, however I'd prefer to have a macro I could run to do this.Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:Excel 2010: Cell contains specific text, insert that text...

Try this. The code is written for the K1, L1:X1 situation. Expand/modify it to extend across all of your other ranges. As written, it inserts the first 4 characters from K1 and a space at the beginning of L1:K1.

For Each myCell In Range("L1:X1")

Answer:Specified text in one cell to other cells(All text related)

Sorry still don't understand what your trying to do.Please understand that I can not see your worksheet from where I'm sitting,so you have to explain everything in detail, using Column Letters and Row Numbers.and describe what it looks like before and what you want it do look like after.It would be helpful if you would post a short example of your spread sheet.I've taken to using find a replace but I'm sure there's an easier way.There are formulas that can do a search, and there are formula that can do a replacebut they each require another cell to work with.In other words in Cell A1 you have the text string:
A
1) Name_ is going to the _____
and you want to replace the string Name, in cell A1 you can't do it.You would need to place a formula in cell B1 such as:=REPLACE(A1,1,4,"Rohl")Then cell B1 would look like:
A B
1) Name_ is going to the _____ Rohl_ is going to the _____
Changing the contents of cell A1, in place, requires the Search/Replace function on the task bar, or a short macro.MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/

How do I search a cell for a specific word and then output that word in another cell. Or I can output another cells contents after a part of text. For example the "-" belowEx A1 contains "Complete Draft - Batch", I want the output to be "Batch"I have many scenarios so I need to nest these statements

Answer:finding text in a cell and returning that text

You may have asked 2 different questions, but I'm not sure.1 - How do I search a cell for a specific word and then output that word in another cell.2 - Or I can output another cells contents after a part of text. For example the "-" belowSearching for a specific word and extracting that word is very different than returning all of the text after a specific character.If all you want to do is return the text after the hyphen, then this should work:=MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)+2,LEN(A1))The MID function has three arguments:=MID (text, start_num, num_chars)The FIND function is used as the start_num argument. FIND returns the position of the hyphen in A1. We then add 2 to that to get past the space to the first letter of any text that follows the hyphen and space.The LEN function is used as the num_chars argument since we don't know many characters to extract. We know the number of characters can't be higher than the total number of characters in the cell, so LEN(A1) covers all situations. If you know the maximum number of characters that the extracted text will ever be, you can just use that number. e.g.=MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)+2,15)On the other hand, if the original string will always start with "Complete Draft - " then we don't have to FIND the hyphen, since it will always be in the same place:=MID(A1,18,LEN(A1))or=MID(A1,18,15)Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I have a brand new lenovo R61i 7650-E8G. I have uninstalled some of the preistalled free-trial software (including antivirus software).  When I try to establish a vpn connection via Windows vpn I get a bluescreen with the following message: stop: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x00000000, *0xA74CC5D8*, 0x00000000). Also, when I try to connect to the internet through my cell phone I get a bluescreen with the following message (both with bluetooth and usb cable):stop: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x00000000, *0xA62DC5D8*, 0x00000000). I receive the bluescreen every time, the number *0x________* is different from time to time.  With my previous laptop (DELL Inspiron 6400) I did not experience these problems and windows vpn connection and internet connection through cell phone worked without any problems. I am confused what to do? Please help..   

Answer:bluescreen 0x0000008E when try to establish vpn connection or internet connection using cell phone

Hi, unfortunately I can't give you any advice, because I'm stuck with exactly the same problem. I've tested it with different VPN Types (PPTP, L2TP) and different VPN-Servers without any success. The VPN is established successfully, but when Windows recieves it's network configuration it stops with a BlueScreen and 0x0000008e. According to your cell phone issue, it seems that it is only related to the mechanism that assigns network settings provided by ppp, and not by the network drivers. It can be reproduced by using WLAN and LAN with chipsets and device drivers from different vendor. I hope that someone from Lenovo Support Team reads this posting.Message Edited by flaiti on 10-23-2008 03:59 AM

I would like to display the phone number on the live tile in the start menu. I couldn't find the info anywhere. My phone has two SIM cards and I would like the two tiles to display the respective numbers or at least say "Personal" and "Work". Thanks!!

Answer:How do I rename a phone tile to display a phone number?

It is my impression that they do display as Phone 1 and Phone 2, Messaging 1 and Messaging 2.
Are your tiles smallest? Maybe expand them.
If you have Live Folders you can tuck Phone 1, Messaging 1 and your fave email into a folder and label it Personal. Ditto the 2 versions and label the Live Folder as Work.Lumia Denim: using Live Folders on your Lumia - Conversations: The Microsoft Devices blog

My phone number when I make a call shows up as unknown on the other persons phone - how do I turn off this feature? Thanks

Answer:My phone number shows up as unknown on the other persons phone

Welcome to Windows Central. Do you have your caller ID set to hide your number? If so, nobody will see your number when you call them.

For some reason when I tap a phone number link in Edge or Cortana (as in, I search for a local business then tap the phone number to call them) it takes me to the people app where I have to tap the number again to call rather than it taking me to the phone app to call. It's an extra step and annoying. Is this new expected behavior?

Answer:Phone number link takes me people app, not phone app

I don't know if it's expected or not, but mine does that too. But once I go to People, I don't have to reenter the number. There's an option to call on the screen with the number below it.

Once upon a time, you pick up the phone and dial a number, BT then billed you for making the call. There are 2 persons in my household, one hates phones and won't touch them ,he won't call anyone and does not want anyone to call him. If he is in the bath or sleeping and the phone rings and he hears it, he will ignore it (cursing the caller).. who is he (that's me the sad person. The other person the happy person love's the phone, exact opposite of the sad person, nothing is to much trouble, loves to hear from the whole world.. who is she (that's my wife).Our phone bill was approx £30 a month, I could live with it. The bill was paid by Direct Debit from our Joint account which was managed by wife. Postman arrives when wife is about to go to work and she knows I hate big phone bills, she hid the last 2 bills which were mega hugh. I did not see the bill but noticed large sum of money being taken by BT, when I confronted the wife, she went into a strop and did not explain much.Last phone bill arrived and I happend to see it. Saw calls being made to certain numbers for a long long time and the numbers didn't register as being familiar.As usual asked wife to explain who has she been calling, almight row, no clear explanation. If there was anyone guilty, it had to be her as she loves the phone and is glued to her mobile and house phone.Thought shud investigate further, sign up for BT online bill and here could see each call listed..

Hi Team,
I have installed the wp 8.1 and facing this issue. I want to report this bug to windows team but cannot find a source to do it, so posting it here if someone can look into this and remove this bug.
When we want to find the mobile number of a contact in our phone book to give it to someone we usually go to phone book and search with name. When i do this on my windows phone 8.1 it just gives the name of the contact iam searching for and no number information under it. I have to tap it and make a call and then cancel the call and find the number in the call history. This is not the case in my previous OS version of WP 8.0.
Regards,
Nag

Answer:Cannot view the phone number under the contact name in Phone book in WP 8.1

What you need to do next time is open people hub instead of opening the phone book in phone. Its weird how i never actually thought of this, to new users this is definitely a flaw that should be addressed immediately, people should be able to obtain their contact information on phone. I think the WP team may have prioritized calling people fast instead.

Hi, everyone. This may be an unusual question, but many have thought about it, I'm sure.

I am not a prejudiced person, but the amount of time wasted when talking to the Phillipines or India from my current Internet Service Provider just drives me up the wall.

Does anyone know of an internet service provider company that still offers U.S.-based tech support? I honestly think I'd be willing to pay the extra. Certainly it can't ALL have gone overseas. Any ideas?

Thank You, EducatedGuess.

Answer:Do any ISP's still offer U.S.-based phone support?

They do at Optimum cable, if your in their area

Many years ago, I was a subscriber to GPO then BT, leaving to join Lineone/BT Surftime.
Over the years BT have made various offers so that I would return to their services. Over the past month BT have tried to entice me to one of their latest offers, Free Call for a year with BT Total Broadband for £13 per month.
I am seriously considering this latest offer, but I am wondering if its to good to be true, because I seem to recall that it was perhaps mentioned on somewhere like the BBC Watchdog program, that the small print need close observation.
Question: Have you transferred to this new deal, or one of BT's new deals,or perhaps have information that might be interesting to know first, before taking the plunge?.
Wasn't sure whether that should have gone in Consumer Watch, but Help is required!.

Answer:Latest BT Special offer on Broadband and Phone?.

I should have also mentioned, that at present, if any problems occur with my present ISP (TalkTalk), getting help from overseas can be a real nightmare. Is BT any better?.
