Our text log shows  5 texts sent from my wife's phone as an SMS to the number 999-999-9999. How do I determine what nu,ber it actually was?

It could be an Email address.

I just texted an email address and it shows up to 999-999-9999 on the text log. So id assume if it was a mms, it was texted to an email address.

Hi, there! That is a great question. Any 999-999-9999 will appear when a text or call cannot be captured. In your case, as these are text messages, this number could have been a shortcode, or a number that is longer than 10-digits (such as an automated text). I hope this helps.

It just means the number was blocked or unavailable.
