Track Internet Text Message Sent to Mobil Numbers

So at some point in your life im sure everyone has gotten a threatoning call, text message, email, or voicemail of some sort. I guess my turn has arrived, which brings me to my main quesiton. Does anyone know if text messaging through Verizon Wireless, sent from their website (online) can be tracked to a specific computer. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

It can be

tracked to a geographic location and internet provider. If the Internet Provider assigns ip addresses, then it can be traced. I'm sure there are programs out there that can alter these. Some interesting reading on this can be found here.

As for the information you provided, if it is a serious threat, contact you local police department and bring it to their attention. They then contact Verizon and possibly get the goods on this person.

Do NOT take matters into your own hands.

Call Verizon and report it.

They have the capability to track a text message.

How easy??

Something like that happened to my boyfriend. It was not a treating tm but it ment that I cheating on him and we would like to know who send it. Can we still go to the police? Or can Verizone easily identify the IP it was sent from?

Where are you

Seriously I have been trying to figure out where you are for over 2 hours.

Why?

Why would you want to figure out where the OP is? That has nothing to do with the OP's question.

But, even more confusing, why post into a discussion that was started EIGHT AND A HALF YEARS AGO?

No need to respond. I am locking this thread anyway.
