Is There Any Free Reverse Cell Phone Directories?


Visitors: 264

Many people have asked me this question. So instead of repeating myself over and over again, I decided to write this article to address the issue of “Is there any free reverse cell phone directories"?

To answer that question: one has to understand how reverse phone search works and the different types of numbers that can be searched.

Reverse phone search is a service where you supply a telephone number and the system or individual gives you detailed information on the owner of the number in return. The service may or may not be free depending on the type of number being searched. For landline and toll-free numbers, free searches can be easily done on online white pages as they are public domain property. Unlisted and mobile numbers on the other hand, are handled differently. Due to the fact that these numbers are supplied and managed by phone operators and they typically will not release these data freely, reverse phone search operators have to obtain their search data from data collection companies. This is not free.

Websites claiming to offer free searches on unlisted and cellphone numbers are nothing but scams. Some of them are even hacker sites luring unsuspecting visitors to the site. In some cases, users computers’ are instantly infected with viruses and Trojan horses the moment they visit these sites, compromising their important data such as credit card number and passwords.

So is there any free reverse cell phone directories? Not really but paid services are very affordable and risk free if you are serious about wanting to know the identity of the caller.

You can do unlimited search on cellphone and unlisted numbers for a one-time fee with paid services. Next time if someone asks you “Is there any free reverse cell phone directories?", just direct them to this article.

Conduct a reverse phone number lookup and get comprehensive phone report for a one time fee.
