Anybody know anything about phone lines..ETC?
My friends asked me for help to look up a number that has been sending them creepy messages, so I'm attempting to do that now.
Now I know that I can do a reverse look up on the number and get basic results, unless of course I pay to get the full report, which I'm not going to do.
Can somebody help me with some of the results I'm getting?
Original Service Provider: VERIZON ACCESS TRANSMISSION SERVICES
Original Service Type: Landline
Zipcode Coverage: 79120, 79189, 79107
Carrier Type: Competitive Access Provider
So I'm a little bit confused. It says that the service provider is Verizon, and the service type is a Landline. Does that mean that its a home phone hooked with the Verizon service? Also this number is texting my friends, I never seen a home phone that can text.
Also, I looked up what a Competitive Access Provider is, but I'm still confused at the definition. Also it gave me 3 different zip codes that have coverage instead of just one. I had the Idea that they are texting them from a Verizon store, but that would make no sense considering it's a landline, I'm also probably way off.
Can anybody help me out? I know I'm not going to find the exact name of the person unless I pay, but can anybody at least tell me what you know about the information I listed? Thanks!

How clear is the word ORIGINAL? It was a landline, it's not now. That's the Competitive word as in CLEC.
This number has been ported to someone else, probably a cell phone, that's why it can text.

Verizon also does landline service, and the area codes are showing you the coverage that Verizon has in that city/area. Its not specific to the number texting. And yes, you can text from landlines.Source(s): Worked for VW for a year
