I setup a website a while back, but the user that wanted SMS Texts, had to enter their carrier as well as their cell-phone number.

However, it must be possible now (somehow) because DoorDash Texts me, and I never gave them my carrier (only my phone number).

They use a text service - you only need the carrier and phone if you are sending email or using some 3rd party text services, which may connect directly with the service.
