Are multiple IP addresses from iPhone related somehow?

I send out trackers included with all my emails.  Recently I compiled all the IPs that I found in those trackers and found that there were a bunch that were really close in number (see list below).  I sent these to different email addresses, yahoo, gmail, private domains, etc. For some reason I suspect that these are all somehow related to each other.  Perhaps, several IPHONES on the same account and all of the emails I sent out maybe got forwarded to perhaps 1 to 4 different iphones.  I"m just guessing. Perhaps it's one entity working from their own micro-allocation or sub-block of IP addresses. It's very strange.  They are all IPHONES on the mymmode network by ATT.  I thought the mymmode network no longer existed, or rather was not taking in any new business except for already-existing ATT customers. I am going crazy trying to figure out if these are all the same person or several people on IPHONES. 166.205.130.134

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try an online tool like <a href=”http://www.myiptest.com/staticpages/index.php/IP-Lookup”>MyIPTest</a> or <a href=”http://nwtools.com”>nwtools</a> to lookup the addresses and see the whois information.

It is possible the addresses belong to the same device or multiple devices. Since the devices may be mobile, they could get assigned a new address several times during the course of an hour, day, etc.

    Saw this same list of IP addresses on an AT&T forum, If that is not your post then my guess is not individual phones.

    I dont think I am phrasing the question properly. How about this........ I know (or rather I suspect with a high level of confidence) that these supposedly unrelated IPs taken from IPHONES which had answered an email i sent out are in fact related. I suspect they are part of a huge fraud ring and that has dozens of email addresses that they use to perpetrate ID fraud and much more. They pose as many different people in order to deceive and get what they want. I sent out those emails to suspect email addresses and I was fully expecting to see a return IP address in the 166.205.13X.XXX range. I need to prove this somehow or at least raise a great deal of suspicion that would warrant further investigation. How would a handful of IPHONES be assigned IP addresses that were all close in number? Is it a server thing? Help please.

    Using MyIPTest site will show you the geographical location of the IP addresses. As I mentioned previously, a single device could have multiple IP addresses in the course of a day.

    Troy, I appreciate you responses to my queries. I still dont think I am properly explaining myself. Of the list of IPs that I posted there about 10 email addresses that I had sent to that generated those IPs. Some of the email addresses were sent to multiple times over a several month period and always returned an IP in that close range above (166.205.13X.XXX). I know that those IPs have to be going to several IPHONES. Here is what I'm think thus far. These individuals are on the mymmode network and I think that might still utilize some PUSH technology. At the time it was first launched I think it was somewhat exclusive to have that service. However, those original customers who are still on it may still be using that old PUSH technology (then again maybe not). I feel like that is how those IPs are being assigned and these individuals are still having all of their email accounts pushed to the IPHONES and it's the mymmode server that is directly assigning those IPs. Yes, each IPHONE probably gets a new IP each time it retrieves its email. Can you see if this theory holds water? Much appreciated. Tim

    Seems to me like you have answered your own question. Not sure what other information/support I can provide.

    I'm only guessing. I need confirmation about the mymmode push thing and details on how it works and/or assigns IP addresses
