    There is no way that I am aware of to find the IP address of an incoming SMS message on any iPhone.

    Welcome to iMore! You can't on an iPhone. You would need a computer. But understand an IP address can show any location. It's not absolute to a person's location. There may be a proxy in place. My IP address often shows I'm in Albuquerque, New Mexico, when in fact I'm in Northwest Alabama. Go figure. Sometimes it shows I'm in New Jersey. There's not much info you can get from an IP address. You will see the ISP and an approximate location. In other words, you may see they have Comcast and live in Atlanta, Georgia. But that's it. Instructions can be found with a quick Google search. But it seems to me to be more trouble than it's worth.
