Can PAYG be traced?

My friend has been receiving threatening texts and thinks they're from a PAYG number (not sure how she knows that though!). Can PAYG numbers be traced by a network or are they anonymous?

Your friend should be contacting the Police, not asking us via you.

Yes, so stop sending them was first somewhat unkind thought.

As most p&g are registered they might not need to do such work though.

Your network won't take it seriously unless you report it to the police first.

But yes, even if the sim is unregistered, by figuring out where the phone spends most time, the networks can infer the owner's address...
