When you SMS a non existent number, why don't you get some kind of response?

It’s annoying, I suppose because it might cost the sender to receive the response…

I get a response when I text a nonexistent number. What provider do you have?

What? You text someone who doesn’t exist and they text you back to tell you they don’t exist? How weird is that?

@lightly: I get an auto response saying it was invalid. :)

@asmonet I kinda figured that but I thought my way was better.

In hindsight that seems obvious, I took your comment entirely too seriously. I am shamed.

@asmonet don’t worry about it. You’re not the first person I’ve had to explain my jokes to.
