With the number of cell phones approaching the number people in the country this newer form of telecommunication has become a major way of communicating. They also provide a level of anonymity to people as phone numbers of cell phone numbers are quite different to home phones in that it is much harder to track cell phone calls.
Home phones are a different kettle of fish however and are much easier to track as a home phone number is considered in the public domain in America and this means it can be stored in directories all over the internet and of course phone books and so forth. In fact you often have to pay to keep your number out of directories.
Tracking home phone calls therefore is very easy and the internet provides many easy and quick services to look up a number that was dialed and give you a glut of information on the caller. However as has been mentioned cell phones are becoming the way of the future of telecommunication and many people are forgoing even having a home phone in favor of internet access and a cell phone; even those with home phones tend to use their mobiles more frequently than their home phones.
So to track cell phone calls you will have to access private databases that have been collected through many service providers, marketing companies and other organizations. This is not free however but if you are desperate to find and track cell phone calls there are services available on the internet that can give you access very quickly.
