If you have recently been harassed with prank calls or have missed repeated calls from an unknown number, you may want to perform a cell phone number trace to get to the bottom of things. But how is this done?
If the number you are searching happens to originate from a landline number that is also listed, then just got on the White Pages website or any other free online telephone directory and perform a reverse lookup there. Just enter the number you are searching into the site and you’ll soon find out the owner’s name and address. The best thing about this is that it can all be done free of charge.
But if the number you are seeking information about happens to be an unlisted or mobile number, your options are a bit more limited. Wireless numbers are private and, as a result, not a matter of public record. So, free directories won’t carry the identifying information these numbers and you’ll have to find another directory to conduct your cell phone number trace.
The good news is that there are now reverse telephone directories that provide information behind the numbers that are left out of the free directories. These directories carry the data behind not just wireless numbers, but VoIP, fax, and unlisted numbers as well.
The bad news is there will be a small fee attached. The data the directories provide for the results of mobile phone searches had to be first purchased from the major wireless carriers. So, they have to charge a small fee back to anyone who wants access to the results of their searches.
In return for this small exchange of money, you will quickly be able to learn from a long list of information about the number you are searching. Included on this list are the caller’s name, address, list of past addresses, the name of the caller’s wireless carrier, other phone numbers connected to the caller, age, marital status, occupation, names of relatives, and, sometimes, ever more personal information. This will depend on the wireless carrier that actually owns the number you are searching.
Fortunately, the fee is within almost anyone’s budget and the best directories offer two ways to purchase the results of searches. For the price of a couple of foot long submarine sandwiches you can pay for the results of one particular cell phone number trace. Or for a little more, you can choose to run an unlimited amount of searches.
