Tracing back to me

I recently texted a friends boyfriend to see if he was cheating and he took a picture of the text and sent it to me asking why I sent it.  Can he trace it to me

Hi Nicholas, 

If you had messages the person previously they might have known it was you, or it is possible that the person has caller ID and was able to see the name on your TextNow account when you texted them.

Erin..  what services with caller ID show the name on the TextNow account..

I had Verizon Land Line with Caller ID..  My name never showed up on my Caller ID when I phoned home using my textnow phone, and my wife's name never showed up on the Caller ID when she called home with her text now phone.  And on top of it usually my textnow number didn't show either.. If I remember it was either the Sprint number on the sim card or the local network number that showed up on the caller ID.

Hey Elmer, we're simply trying to speculate what may have occurred there. In general, your TextNow number is the only piece of information that would show up on the other contact's end, and it cannot be traced back to you, as our numbers are so frequently recycled and not kept on an official public record as belonging to individual users.

Hi there! I'm sorry to hear of your ordeal, however, we can't take any legal action ourselves. I would recommend to contact your local authorities, and have them contact us with the proper legal request
