Occasionally when I send a text message the recipient asks why my message is coming from a phone number they don’t recognize and I don’t recognize it either. It’s totally different than the phone number associated with my RW account. I seem to remember hearing something about there being two phone numbers associated with an MVNO (I believe RW is an MVNO): one is the RW given number and one is the number known by the actual cell service provider (in this case T-Mobile). My questions:
- Am I right in assuming the unrecognizable phone number is one assigned to my phone by T-Mobile?
- Why does that unrecognizable number occasionally display on phones I’m sending texts to?
Thanks for any help with this issue.
