It’s really not hard to search a name from phone number with the use of the internet. These reverse phone look up databases have become quite popular over the last few years.
If you have ever received prank or harassing phone calls you can understand the desperate need people have to find out who is making these calls. Or, possibly you have suspicions about calls your spouse is receiving on their cell phone and want to check out who it is.
Another use of reverse directories is to help protect yourself from identity theft. I was once called by a woman claiming to be from my bank. She was adamant to get my social security number to verify a transaction from my account. By searching for a name from the phone number that was showing up on my caller ID, I was able to quickly realize that this woman was only after my identity, and was not anyone calling from my bank.
Whatever your reason for needing to do a reverse lookup search, it can be done easily at little to no cost.
If the number you have is a listed landline number you can get the name of the owner for free. If the number is a cell phone or unlisted number then it will not be available in any of the free directories. This is because these numbers are not public records. The specialized directories that charge a small fee pay the cellular companies to have access to their records.
The small fee is well worth it for the ease of accessing information quickly. If only take a couple minutes to conduct your search. Just input the phone number you are searching, and within seconds you will have a report that includes the owner’s name, address and cellular carrier.
Almost all phone numbers are available from these reverse phone directories, including private and cell phone numbers. You will be allowed to conduct your search to find out if the number you are looking for is included in the database before paying a fee. You will then be able to choose to pay a small fee for a one time access, or for slightly more have access to unlimited searches for the next 12 months.
Finding a name from phone number is quick and easy and can put an end to the mystery of unknown callers.
