Default cell number look up

any way of looking up cell numbers without leaving a credit card # or paying monthly fee? my youngest son graduated basic training last week and is off to tech school. he finally has full access to his phone. they are a lot of late night texts from 2 numbers we dont recognize. 14 last night alone after 2 am that he didnt respond to .not sure if they are from crazy stalker girlfriend using a different phone. we let her know before that we would be watching the late night phone usage as he doesnt need to be distracted. i dont want to block the number until i see who it is. i know hes not a kid and some will say just let him handle it but its just me being a dad and looking out for him and making sure he has the best opportunity in tech school without the distraction. thanks

He graduated basic training and you re monitoring his phone. sorry, but I think you need to let him handle his business. Hell be ok.

knew she was nuts before he left but wont get into details here. worried about her distracting him so he doesnt pass. she would be happy if he got sent home and would do anything to make it happen

He didn't answer the texts because he's probably already got a private phone. Another vote for leaving the man alone.

There’s a way to trace and identify who it is but not cheap, I’d suggest ignoring and blocking or get a new number.

It is his issue to deal with. If I were him I would be mad at you for even monitoring the phone usage.

What you are doing is plain old weird. Give the young man his privacy and mind your own business. And it doesnt matter if you are paying the cell bill or not. BTW I have 4 children (22, 21, 21, 17).

He's an adult, if he can't tell who it is by the texts themselves then it's not someone he wants to know. Let him get a burner phone from Wal Mart and go from there.

You'd think a guy with the handle of Total Mayhem would be better at handling this.

WTF? I haven't looked at my kids cell phone usage since they were about 14. Kids need to learn how to deal with life at some point, make mistakes, confront bullies, deal with the opposite sex at some point. I'd rather have that happen when I'm around, not once they finally get out from under parental helicoptering...

Are you going to be alive when it's time for him to choose when to take Social Security?

Did he ask you for help, or did you just assume he still needs your help solving all of his life's little problems.?

Just to parrot others let him deal. Hes not your little boy anymore, heck hes gone through basic already. Time to cut the cord and intervene when he asks for your advice.

If he doesn't want to answer them, he can block them...…………..HIMSELF. Let him be a man and deal with his own issues.

It sounds like he knows, but if Jr doesn't fully know, calling 14 times at 2 a.m. is nuts and he better run away as fast as he can. If your son happens to knock up some crazy B like that, his life will never be the same. Do your thing dad, the stakes can be high and hopefully he will listen. When he meets a keeper then you can leave him alone.

1) the short answer is no. The texts can be from a computer, IP phone anyplace
2) what you're doing is strange
3) you know it's the EX so just block. Or have him get new number

He loves his son. The military has a very low tolerance fir F Ups. Hes doing what he needs to do as a Dad. None of us no the sons back story.
So answer his question or stfu.
