If I am receiving text messages from a US area code(323) can the phone actually be in a different country? Is there a way to tell where the text originated from.

They can be roaming in any country. it would be a spoofed number. There is no easy way to determine this

No, there's no way to tell. The sender may not even be using a phone at all! Example: http://www.afreesms.com/intl/canada
