    I've got perhaps a strange question. My girlfriend had recently been
    getting harrassing calls on her cell phone from on "unknown number".
    Sprint wouldn't give her the number without police help, so we hoped it
    would stop. Anyway, today, a text message arrived. It was very
    disturbing and made a threatening remark. One would have to assume this
    would be the same person calling previously. Only he forgot to conceal
    his number when he sent the text message. So we had a number to call
    finally. Called it back, and low and behold, it's someone we know.

    This person is in another state and is apparently more off his rocker
    than we thought. What steps should be taken to report this to the
    authorities? It was very disturbing and I believe charges might be
    filed. Since it was across state lines, I wasn't sure where to go.

    Keep a log of everything, and time and date it.
    Changing numbers sucks but, in a life-safety situation, I wouldn't hesitate
    to do so.

    Other legal stuff, which is not phone related, would be to get a restraining
    order, if things get out of hand.
    It gives you cause to get with the phone company and they can log all
    incoming and outgoing calls for a pre-determined time as ordered by the
    court.
    There are some options but, the easiest would be to just change the number,
    in the long run anyway.

    You may get better advice from the police or a lawyer rather than a cellular
    newsgroup.

    Along with the other replies, there are a couple of more. First off, I don't
    believe SPCS has the capability to pull off the TM's off your phone, like
    they can do with your phone book. Don't delete the TM in your phone's memory
    that you received. You might try using a video camera to tape the TM that's
    on the phone now.

    Depending on how long this joker has been calling your G/F, copy all those
    monthly bills and try to identify those calls listed on the phone bill,
    including the one you will receive during the next billing cycle.

    Following these two steps, then it's time to contact the local authorities
    to get some additional advice or follow up.
