    who sent me a text?

    tracfone lg440g, tmobile sim.

    does not display the sender of an incoming text until i pay to receive it, instead shows first few characters of the message itself. is this a phone issue or a carrier issue? and perhaps more importantly, can i change it?

    That's the way Tracfone dumbphones work. Nothing you can do about it except be grateful that you have the option not to pay for it.

    On smartphones the text comes through and you pay for it. Spammer/scammers text me and waste my text units - fortunately not many.

    must be a fone thing, then. my old moto w260g/att showed me the sender's number, or name from my contacts list.

    Sounds like a carrier issue, You can ask in the official forums of the smartphone.
