Tips & Warnings:

  • Cell phone numbers are generally not shown in the public record unless someone really wants to disclose it for certain reasons. If you're wondering about some strange numbers that keep on appearing on your cell phone bill or probably you can no longer stand of the prank calls that you receive everyday then look it up through a paid reverse cell phone directory. 

    These are the web sites that could give you the right information that you might need because they could provide you added information compared to the free ones. The websites with free services may only give you a limited type of information.

    Websites that requires a fee look for additional records for a particular phone number, but you also need to pay them. Their service fee usually ranges from $20-$40, depending on the kind of information that you may want to know. Research for websites that provide a 100% money back guarantee if ever they can't find the person you are looking for.

  • A reverse cell phone directory website have certain records for cell phone numbers and its users but they require a certain fee. Some of these sites will offer a money back guarantee if you're not satisfied with their service. The information that these sites could provide for your search includes the person who owns the phone number, physical address, mailing address, and additional details that he or she had given to the cell phone provider.

  • You may call the unknown number and listen if the person will tell his or her name. This would probably not a good option for others since you'll be able to talk to somebody whom you don't know. 

    There are also business people who just keep calling because they want to sell something for you, one way of marketing their products through a sales call. You can also block these annoying calls too.

  • Teens who participate in social networking sites or other websites should not reveal their personal information like street address and phone number since these data can be disclosed to unknown and dangerous people like stalkers via the world wide web.

  • Block your cell phone number as soon as you can if you want total privacy since tracing a cell phone number online could be easier for some people whom you don't know at all.

  • Bear in mind that cell phone numbers change constantly. Some people will discontinue their service for certain reasons and their phone numbers may be activated by someone else of the same phone company service. 

    One reason could be payment delinquency. Another reason is closing their present account with their cell phone carrier. In this way, you could be getting the wrong information if the phone providers were not able to immediately update their databases.
