However, I believe you can say "Can you text your number to me?". I would say this for example when a person is texting his/her number to someone else in front of me, and I need to stress that I want it too. I imagine myself in that situation, and that's what I would say... "Can you text it to me too?" Can any native speaker confirm this?

Hi Can you text me your number? This is the correct sentence Niwantha

You don't put "to" there because "text" is a transitive verb.
