Enter a Cell Phone Number in the
Reverse Cell Phone Lookup
If you've tried to find out who belongs to a particular cell phone number by doing
a reverse cell phone lookup, you probably discovered, fairly quickly, that the information available online and
elsewhere was a little sparse. In fact, compared to some of the usual information that is readily available for
land line numbers, the information you receive when doing a cell phone lookup is, for the most part, useless. The
best you'll do using a normal phone number lookup service is finding out the originating city, the cell carrier -
and that is it.
Finding reverse cell phone lookup information
If you are determined to find detailed information on the web and you are
convinced that it is just a matter of time until you hit the right site, you can waste a lot of effort looking for
services that provide free cell phone lookups. In fact, you may find that the so-called “no charge” sites that are
offering this service are not what they claim at all. Though you may be used to finding a lot of valuable
information for free online, on practically any subject, finding out who belongs to that mystery cell phone number
is still going to require a specialty service.
The bottom line is that cell phone carriers do not make this information public as
with land lines. It is not available on the public domain, in phone books or on any of the normal phone lookup
sites, such as the White Pages. The carriers do this to protect their customers from telemarketers and others who
would run your cell phone bill up. How would you feel about paying to have a telemarketer call you? Absurd, isn't
Now, there is a chance that the number you are searching for is available on the
world wide web – not a great chance, but you never know. It is possible that one of the big search engines has this
information in its database if the person disclosed it on a public site at some point. It only takes a second to do
a search, so plug in the number – you never know what you'll find. However, I wouldn't hold your breath.
When you do a search for a reverse cell phone lookup, it is inevitable that you
are going to run into sites that offer free searches. Unfortunately, however, you'll find that they are actually
paid sites once you dig into them a little - and if you want any real information about the number in question, you
are going to have to pay for it. Some sites claim to have their own database, but they ask you for your cellphone
number and personal information before they give you any info about the cell phone owner. After you have agreed to
their terms, you may or may not get any info about the cell number. Unless this listing is in their database, you
are out of luck. And now they have just added one more number to their site.
The truth is that they still only have a very small percentage of the available
cell numbers out there. Even if they do have the information you are looking for, it could very well be out of date
and obsolete. And if you think that these sites look professional and above board, you would be right. They usually
spend a lot of money to look good in order to gain people's trust.
However, just because a site seems legit doesn't mean that it is. There is a
chance that you could pay for information and not get it. Though the FTC and others are clamping down on sites that
do not follow through on their promises, you still have to be diligent.
Fortunately, there are services out there that specialize in getting you the most
up to date reverse cell phone lookup information available. These sites have a proven track record of providing
real information, not second hand, dated records. They get their data right from the carriers - and for a small
fee, you can have access to this private info as well.
Most of them have a free page that you can use to enter your number. It will come
back with the city the phone number resides in and the carrier the phone uses. They are also going to tell you
right there whether there is a full report available. The full report contains things like the subscribers name and
