We're here today to teach you about a way to find out information about almost anyone, with only a phone number to start from! With only this one piece of information to work from, you can find name, address and even more. Amazing, yes? It's easier than you may think. As you probably already know, unlisted and cell phone numbers are not in any phonebook.
This means they aren't in any "public domain" so information on these types of phones is not easy to get a hold of. There are companies out there who put together databases of phone numbers, along with information about the number holders. They then put searchable directories together from this information which are available for people to query. These companies pay for access to unlisted numbers and cell phone records, which is how they are able to make this information available. These are referred to as "reverse phone directories" and they allow you to get full details on any number.
It's all done online - you just type in the phone number, hit search, and the person's details will be displayed on your computer screen. Immediately following this article is a link which will allow you to do a sample search for free; try it for yourself. These companies will charge a fee for using this type of service but it isn't expensive. You can find some that will only charge a flat one-time fee that then lets you use unlimited searches - this is your best option so that you don't have to pay again each time you want to run a search on a number. Several different reasons lead people to use these sort of services.
Checking up on a spouse who is exhibiting suspicious behavior to see who has been calling them, or putting a stop to frequent prank calls are two common uses for these services. Any time you want to find out about someone, but have only a number to work from, these directories come in handy. Before you do use a paid service, you can try out a quick way to see if you can find the same information without paying a dime. It will sometimes work, so even though a paid search isn't expensive, you may as well give it a shot to see what you get.
Even though a paid search isn't prohibitively expensive, sometimes this will find you the information you are seeking, so give it a try. One tip: make sure to put quotation marks around the number you're searching, as in "555-555-5555". If this phone number is online on some webpage, then Google will bring it up for you. Phone numbers will make their way on the internet for a few different reasons (classified ads, profile pages etc) so there's a chance the number you are "investigating" might just be on the web. If your number can't be found this way, then on to the directories.
Don't pass up a web search though, you never know where phone numbers will turn up. Working from only a number, you can learn a lot about someone; thanks to reverse phone directories, this is easier than ever.
