So a weird thing happened and has me confused. Several months back my dad switched service providers. He got a new phone, number, and sim card. The old number will not deactivate (tracfone thing) til March of next year. Today he texted me, and it arrived from the old tracfone number. I texted back and it was actually him on his new phone. Does anyone know how this is possible. The old contact was removed and a new contact added. There are 2 separate text chains. So we have texted under the new number, but today all of a sudden the texts arrived under the old number.
