The Many Ways to Track a Cell Phone Number Owner

Jul 7, 2008
If you want to track a cell phone number owner, there are really just three things you can do: (A) answer the phone when the number calls you, (B) hire a private detective to pose as a telemarketer for glow-in-the-dark condoms, or (C) use a reverse lookup company for mobile, telephone, or cellular numbers.

Of course, all solutions are based on the scenario that you're being stalked by a loose-screwed psycho with a cell phone number that's not on your contact list. Using solution A can tricky, as the caller might just hang up on you the moment you answer your call or worse, do a Hollywood-esque spiel like "I know WHO you did last summer..."

On the other hand, tracking by hiring a private detector is going to cost you a lot of money. And really now, detective agencies rarely have the knack for effective telesales calls.

A reverse lookup thus far is the most effective strategy you can take on. There are many reverse lookup companies on the Internet. Many of them are very good companies - the main downside to them is the price. Some charge as high as $25 per search. Other websites, meanwhile, charge a one-time fee - some as high as $59.

You can try looking for a free reverse lookup company tracker. Chances are, you'll be like most Internet users - you don't where to find them or you refuse to believe that they exist. In most cases, you might yourself hopping from one free reverse lookup service to another - hoping to find something that is perfectly legit and with an extensive database of numbers.

The common belief is that you won't be able to find a very good free service on the Internet - for a very good reason. Cell phone service providers privately keep the database of their subscribers. It's like they're holding their database of cell phone subscribers in the palm of their hands. In order to tickle their hands open, the companies offering reverse lookup companies have to pay for access to the database. It can cost up to tens of thousands of dollars just to acquire and keep these databases updated.

The Balance In Favor

If you're using a reverse lookup company, it is easy to track down a cell phone number owner. You will only need to enter the cell phone number and the results will be generated for you.

A typical lookup would have this kind of information:

The owner's name
Address
Cell phone company

In some cases, the information could be expanded to include the owner's legal records, like if he or she has done time in jail, how times married and divorced, among other records. In choosing a reverse lookup company, what you should think about is the money-back guarantee. You should also think about how excellent customer support is. You certainly don't want to waste your money on something that doesn't work for you. And you really won't like it if the company you booked doesn't even reply to your emails.
