Anonymity is something very much valued by a lot of people who are aware of its price on the internet. They value the price of their privacy because they do not want to be ridiculed by ?asking semi-retarded questions without the risk of being made fun of, or they just don?t want to share their real identity.

It is easy to retain your anonymous status on the internet, but it?s ?different when you want to hide your phone number. Blocked calls are easy to make. You?ll just have to add *67 in front of the number you are dialing and it won?t show your number anymore, but this can be easily traced by calling the carrier you use and asking them to trace the call origin.

Text messages are even harder to deal with. You can?t even use the *67 prefix. Fortunately, though, there are a couple of solutions that you can try in order to contact somebody, without revealing your identity or any information that may lead to you.

Sending Text Messages via Email

You can send text messages to any number, as long as you know what carrier, and the number you are going to contact, uses. Just make sure that you aren?t making the mistake of using the same email you use for your personal and ?social media site accounts like Facebook, Twitter or Google+.

AT&T

SMS: 10digitphonenumber@txt.att.net

MMS: 10digitphonenumber@mms.att.net

Verizon Wireless

SMS: 10digitphonenumber@@vtext.com

MMS: 10digitphonenumber@@vzwpix.com

Sprint

SMS: 10digitphonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com

MMS: 10digitphonenumber@pm.sprint.com

T-Mobile

SMS/MMS: 10digitphonenumber@tmomail.net

Metro PCS

SMS/MMS: 10digitphonenumber@mymetropcs.com

You can also use anonymous texting websites like the following:

www.textem.net

www.txtemnow.com

www.textport.com

The only downside with these services are, those who will receive your text message won?t be able to reply back. You need to provide them an email or any contact in order for them to respond.

You can also try Android apps like Anonymous Texting and Anonytext. These apps allow you to send and receive text messages while remaining anonymous. Unfortunately, there are no apps on iOS that does this, but you can try out Pinger. It won’t hide your phone number, but it will allow you to create a new number to send messages with instead.
