    Question Determining mobile number from an SMS alert

    I've subscribed to an SMS alert service "Early Warning Network" here in Australia some years ago, before I got the current Bold 9700. The texts I receive show up as "Alerts" even though I don't have a contact called "Alerts". Can I determine the phone number this is coming from so I can add to contacts and hence add a personalised ring tone for these texts?

    You're assuming that the number is constant. Often times these alerts are generated via computer, and the number is random.I am not 100% sure how they do the alerts. If you can back up the text, you should be able to identify what the number is.
