There are many things you can do when you are looking for a cell number for an old friend or an old classmate that you have not seen or spoken to in a long time. You can try many things, but you can also come up blank. One of the ways you can further your search is to go online. When you do that, you have to know where to go first so that you do not waste a lot of time on sources that are not going to help. Give Wink a try when you start and it may be the only stop you need to make.
You are going to find that if someone has never been online, Wink is not going to be of much help, but that can be said of any search source. There are times when someone else may add things about them, but their cell number will not be part of that information most of the time. However, if they are around, Wink may find them. Names are great starting points with any search, so be sure of spelling and remember that some women change names when they marry.
Though other searches can give you thousands of results when searching for a very common name, you will find that Wink is a bit better at giving you things that may be more relevant. Wink has options that are very good at allowing you to narrow down what the site search will bring up for you. Add what you know, but if you are not sure where someone lives any longer, leave that out of your entries. Go with what you know for sure and skip the rest.
Remember that no search is perfect. Wink may find nothing if there is nothing to find, or if you have your information wrong. At times, all Wink can give you is a link or a clue that can lead you in another direction. That may not seem like a lot, but new information, even if it is not the cell number you are looking for, can help you decide what you want to do next.
If you do find a number through Wink, but you can not tell if it is the one that you should be calling to reach your old friend, you may need more help. In that case, go to a site that shows you who owns a phone number . This may tell you if you have a match or not.
