    sorry serviciio's right, there's no way to do that without voiding your warranty and TOS with your carrier.

    Maybe I've misunderstood and sorry for adding my two cents, but you can hide your telephone number when calling someone (only calling however). Go to "call log" ->menu ->options->General Options->"Restrict My Identity"->pearl button-> choose off or "always".

    The only way I know do to that is to know the person's carrier and go on the carrier's site and send a text.

    Oh yeah I forgot about that! I've done that one before.. but it's no fun b/c they can't write you back with a "WHO IS THIS?"

    You could always send an email to their mobile # from a play account you make. Like, imwatchingyou@gmail.com or something.

    There's a bunch of sites where you can send a text message to any phone from a webform and they won't know who sent it. Or you can spoof a number or name. But then your message might make it to http://smspeeping.com
    I think there's an option on each carriers' site to do so as well.
