He might have got a recycled number....those can occur with these tracfones due to popularity...

I dont think eb or pp sells these numbers - yahoo might be crackable...

I would think it is tied to whomever had the number before you. I get all kids of calls on new tracfones - mostly from collection agencies and banks where the previous user bounced checks. But there are the occasional racy texts and honest people just looking for the person who had the number. I love it when they ask me if I know how to reach the person...
