I have multiple services that communicate w/ me via sms messaging, twitter, voxtxt, MY BANK! So what security is implemented to prevent people from potentially ruining my reputation or even my finances? I decided to find out.

DO NOT DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL AND IF YOU DO AND HAPPEN TO GET CAUGHT I LOL @ YOU!

So usually these service ask for a carrier, why? I dont know, im no scientist but i do know that your cell number is paired with the provider, but i doubt that it helps any.

But as i started reading i found that it it super easy to do.. With an abundance of services available to spoof caller id number and what not you can easily post on others twitter or depending on the services they use order ring tones from their number.

Why order ring tones or sign up for services if you are not going to get any benefit? Well because it charges the person and if they do not catch it then you begin to have a monthly bill that you never agreed to..

Since most of these services charge i never got to try out any of my theories but i did find a blog that pointed out the vulnerability in twitter, i still would like to test out how my bank handles it but i guess i will have to wait.

Hope this helps :)

the reason they ask for your carrier is so they can send text to your phone without being charged for the msg, most carriers have email address the phones can recieve msg from

phone number @ carriers email address

(exp. 1111111111@message.alltel.com)

also alot of carriers have a system inplace to send text from their web sites and some let you enter the from number, thou most of these only work with phones on their network

edit: also as far as regersting for most services they should have two step reg process

step 1 - you send text from phone to them or register on there web site

*they send the phone a text with word or phrase to text back to confirm*

(normally a generic target word not one genrated just for that phone line :( )

step 2 - send the key word back

so theoretically, you could do half the registration from your phone see the keyword and send two msg from that phone number with a suggested 30 second pause between the request and keyword msg

*here is a few of the email addressed to get you started* :P
