I read before that some people, when their phone was stolen, knew that the stolen phone was still receiving i-messages intended for them. I am in a different situation, is this possible? Here is what happened 1) Phone was stolen 2) Locked phone remotely, thief turned it off before I wiped it 3) Purchased new i-phone, de-activated old SIM and activated new one in my phone 4) Changed all of my passwords (including apple ID) 5) Probably a week later, got an i-message (on my NEW phone) from random number in my same area code, it directed at a person saying thanks for the new phone and they needed the password for it. --> (SO, I am guessing a thief is using my phone, gave/sold theirs to somebody else...but IS that possible?) 6) I thought it was just some crazy coincidence to a wrong number, did not reply. 7) A week ago I got another text from the same person about something random to the same person. This person would know they had the wrong number if no reply, there was a few months gap between the two texts. IS THIS POSSIBLE?? The other threads were saying the stolen phone was receiving the i-messages meant for the owners "new" phone. My situation is me, the owner on a "new" phone, am receiving text messages meant for somebody else on my "stolen" phone (so I think). PS - To why I did not reply back to the texts: I assumed it was not possible, and just in case, did not want to tip off the thief.
