Try it, and then you will see it will say failed or the equivalent.

yes but before you attempt anything quite so elaborate, first learn how to
type something simple like "anonymous sms" into Google.

No.

If you have an Orange account you can send 30 free SMS messages a month
from the website, these show the number 1003 not your phone number so you
could use this if you want to stay anonymous.

It's not anonymous- at least not any longer. The number is 1003, but at
the end of the text message it will have your number. Useful, because
then people can reply to you more easily.

Yep, but doesn't it give the number of the a/c holder too?
