How Do I Find the Phone Carrier of a Number?


Visitors: 612

Sometimes people use a reverse phone lookup to find out more than just a person's name and residential location. There are other phone-related details you can learn about an individual, including who their phone carrier is. A Telephone carrier, or provider, is the name of the telecommunications company that the number is registered with. This company also provides service to the phone. Best of all, this piece of information is obtainable free of charge for both public and private numbers. Therefore, regardless if you would like to lookup the provider for a landline or cell phone, all you need is a free reverse number trace to assist you.

Where can you find this searching service? Access the internet, call up your favourite search engine, and type into the query box “free reverse cell phone lookup". It is important that you include cellphone in the phrase, because many backwards phone searches only include listed land line numbers in their directories, and will return zero results for wireless phones or other private numbers. Thus, if you want to find the phone carrier of a mobile number, using the right lookup site is mandatory.

Once you find a website you like, enter the ten-digit phone number into the designated query box, which is usually located on the main page. You should be provided with three results at no cost to you:

1 - Type of phone - I. E. cell phone
2 - General location - I. E. Name of state and sometimes city associated with the number
3 - Telephone carrier

If no results are found, try another site that offers the same service. This is a good idea because it is not uncommon for some free cell phone lookup sites to withhold phone carrier information, in an attempt to get the consumer to become a member and pay for the details.

That said, you should be advised that on occasion the name of the telecommunication company that is given as the phone provider of a number, is not always accurate for unpublished numbers. The reason is since these databases are free they are not frequently updated, so it is possible that the phone owner could have changed carriers.

Hence, if knowing who the current provider of the cellular phone is important, or you need to know more details such as the person's identity, address, other phone numbers, etc. , you will need to pay for a reverse cell phone lookup service.
