Mailinator's disposable SMS (see news announcement archive) seems to be a bit of a hidden feature. First you have to search for an e-mail address and only then click the Public SMS option. But it always seems to default to a fixed number.

Which country does this number belong to?

And what if you change it in the right side and click "GO!"? Does it switch to an e-mail address or to a different number?

Public SMS Change number

1 Answer 1


Well, it seems to be an US number: https://www.whitepages.com/phone/1-201-381-4330.
More specifically, 1 is the US' international country calling code and 201 is New Jersey's area code.

It also seems to be the only number available there, so this service is only good if the sender can send to a US number.
