    Ok this is confusing...so I was texting this guy and for some reason he knew who I am. We've never spoke on the phone only text message each other back and forth. So my question is: How does he know my full name? I left the show my caller ID on so are u saying that someone can tell it's me by just a text? I gave him an alias name but he somehow knew who I am...

    that is decidedly creepy... maybe this guy works for the government (conspiracy >.>) or maybe he just googled the number? if you have it listed anywhere (like on facebook) it might be visible

    It is coming from your caller ID, I believe, the text IS coming from you phone number. It is not a creepy conspiracy. If you don't want that Info out there turn off your caller ID.

    Sorry, Chobbs I don't think that's it. When u text someone even if u have "show your caller ID on or off" u will only get their phone number not full name unless u gave it to them and they saved it in their contact. I think this guy works for AT&T or got some app. I feel violated!

    So I asked him flat out how he got my full name and he said that he ran my number through some database. He said he got friends everywhere. That's creepy. I'm not talking to this guy anymore.

    I know. The OP was kinda rude. Oh well, it really isn't our business but it definitely was not a stupid question.

    Prolly has to do with a dating app that they were banned from. I know this from another thread they posted on about it.
