What Is a Reverse Phone Number Look up

Jun 8, 2008
Almost everybody has a cellphone these days, and a reverse phone number look up is a very useful service. An example where you will need the service would be, you have written down a person's number but cannot remember their name. If the phone number you have written down is a landline number it is simple to use a reverse lookup service to get all the information you need about the owner. It can be slightly more difficult to carry out this sort of service on a cellphone number. This is because the free directories don't have access to mobile phone numbers as they are held by the individual carrier company.

There is a way to get this information on cellphone numbers, although not for free. There are a few sites that hold databases on both landline and cellphone numbers. The cellphone companies that own the records and information, sell it to third-party vendors who can access this information for you, for a fee.

These databases hold much more than just names and addresses of the numbers owners, you can also access civil and criminal records, and carry out various background checks. Normally for a one off fee you can search as many numbers as you like, and can even find information on unlisted numbers.

The information that you can obtain from a good paid service, is equal to that you would pay top dollar to a private investigator for. This information can be used to carry out background checks on new employees, babysitters, your daughters new boyfriend, the uses are virtually endless.

You need to be wary of any sites that offer you a free reverse phone number look up, as in my experience they are used as a cover for paid companies. I haven't found a free service that will let you access both cellphone and residential phone information. Most of these sites will let you run a phone number search free of charge, but then ask you to pay to either see or download your results.

You will then be funnelled off to their sister site where you will be paying for the service. What you need to remember here is that the paid reverse phone lookup services charge a fee for a reason, that is to legally access extensive databases. Most of these services will offer a money back guarantee so you can be sure they are not trying to scam you.

There are many different reasons for wanting to run a reverse phone number lookup, from checking up on her cheating husband, to carrying out a background check on a new babysitter. Whatever you need it for they are a very useful tool that will become even more important in the future.
