Cell Phone Number Lookup, Heres How

Aug 25, 2008
There are a number of reasons why you would want to run a cell phone number lookup. You might be receiving prank calls or malicious calls from someone you know. You might even suspect that your spouse is cheating. The problem is you do not know where the phone call came from. So how do you find out?

There are a few quick and easy strategies that both I and others have tried with great success. Here are a few quick suggestions:

1. Google- One of the easiest ways to run a cell phone number lookup is to search it on Google. This is a particularly effective strategy in identifying telemarketers, businesses, or sales people that use mass phone calls.

2. Free Phone Book Directory- This is basically the web version of your typical phone book. The benefit of the online version is that the search is national instead of local. I have to warn you though, that it will not help you find cell phone users. Websites like Anywho and Whitepages only identify landlines and home phones just like your normal phone book.

3. Paid Directories- If you are absolutely certain that the phone call came from a cell phone, then you can opt to use a paid directory. How it works is, you pay for membership and you can type in a phone number. The service searches their databases and will show you information regarding that person. Good strategy if you know it comes from a cell phone. There have been complaints that these services are poorly updated and problems in finding phone numbers. Not your best choice in my opinion.

4. Reverse Cell Phone Number Lookup- Your best option in my opinion. It searches both cell phone numbers and landline. You type in your phone number and you get an instant report showing the name, address, carrier, and other specific information regarding the person.

I suggest you go through the first two options if you have the time. If you just want to quickly find the identity of the person, the go for the reverse cell phone number lookup. If you exhaust all those options, you could always have someone else call the phone number for you to find out who it is. With telemarketers, it usually only takes one phone call to stop them from ever calling you again. If you know it is a prank caller or someone you know, be discreet. You do not want to give away your identity.
Again, Google it and use the whitepages. If you are lazy use the reverse cell phone number lookup.
