Why am I getting text messages from my own number iPhone?
Select “Messages“. Choose “Send & Receive“. Ensure that only your phone number is listed in the “You can be reached by iMessage at” area. If you have an email address or anything else listed, it could cause duplicate text messages.
Can spoof text messages be traced?
Is it possible to backtrack an SMS spoof? Yes, it is possible to backtrack a SMS spoof (i.e. trace the message to determine who the actual sender of the message was). As a consequence every single SMS message sent can be traced back to the company that has been permitted to send a message by a regulator.
Can someone text using my phone number?
Yes. Any response they send though, would be received by you. Any SMS message can be spoofed “meaning, sent using caller ID identification other than from the device it is actually sent from”. Can you text your own phone from your phone but make it show up as someone else’s number texting you?
