Reverse Phone Number Lookup Service - 5 Common Mistakes People Make When Choosing One

 


Visitors: 244

In this article we will look at five common mistakes that people make when choosing a reverse phone number lookup service and how to avoid them:

1) They choose a service without a “search box"

Choosing a reverse phone number lookup service without a search box is a mistake. Why? Because you want to be able to type in the telephone number you are researching to see if it's in the their database. For example, you don't want to pay for a search only to find out the service does not have a record for that phone number in their database.

Once you find a service with a search box enter the telephone number you are researching to see if they have information on it in their database. If they do then you can make the decision if you want to proceed with a paid search. But either way, at least you will know they have a record for that phone number.

2) They choose a service that does not have an extensive database

Choosing a reverse phone number lookup service that doesn't have an extensive database can mean ending up with a “No Results" message when you input a telephone number. It may also mean that when results do come back there may be limited information. In addition, if the service doesn't have cell phone numbers in it's database then you won't get any results if you are inputting a cell phone number.

Look for a service that has information on hundreds of millions of telephone numbers in its database - both landlines and cell phones. In addition, the better services will have information (when available) such as the telephone owner's name, address, satellite map, possible neighbors and relatives, family members, and more.

3) They choose a service that doesn't offer a guarantee

If the reverse phone number lookup service doesn't have a guarantee you risk losing the money you paid for a phone number search if it comes back with no results; or at the very least it may take time to get your money back.

Bottom line: Find a service that offers a money-back guarantee. Of course, you will want to make sure to read the terms of the guarantee before purchasing from them.

4) They choose a service that doesn't offer customer support

Sometimes finding information on a particular telephone number can be difficult. If you use a service that doesn't provide customer assistance you will end up where you started - with no information.

Make sure that you use service that will to try to find additional information on the phone number you are researching, at no additional charge, if you can't find it in their database.

I know of one reverse phone number lookup service that asks its customers to contact them if the customer cannot find information on a telephone number in their database. The customer support staff will then try to locate it for the customer.

5) They choose a service based on price alone

Sometimes people make the mistake of looking for the lowest price instead of the best value. How do you find the best value? Avoiding the mistakes mentioned in this article is a good start.

Now you know five most common mistakes that people use when choosing a reverse phone number lookup service - and how to avoid them.

Here are more helpful tips when it comes to choosing a reverse phone number lookup service.
