Comparison of Top Reverse Cell Phone Lookup Sites


Visitors: 236

If you have ever received a call from an unknown number on your cell phone and wondered who was calling you, then you know how frustrating it can be to try to lookup the name of the caller. Sometimes, you want to know just out of curiosity. Other times, it can be more important to find out. For example, you may need to know who the caller is because:

  • You are receiving prank or harassing calls
  • You see suspicious calls on your husband, friend, spouse's phone
  • You want to research a number that appears on your cell phone bill
  • You need to find someone's address
  • Finding a good source for reverse phone lookups can be difficult. That is because cell phone companies do not publish a directory of cell phone numbers like they do with landline phones. Fortunately, there are several resources online that have compiled databases of cell phone numbers so that you can get the information you need.

    To help you select the right service, here is a comparison of 3 of the best reverse cell phone lookup sites:

    1. Reverse Phone Detective

    This site offers a very simple site interface, making it easy to input the cell number. It will do a preliminary search for you and give you limited information showing whether they have the number in their database.

    The site will then find the owner of that phone from its massive database of cell phones, landlines, unlisted numbers and government records. This site has two options for their service. You can either get a one-time lookup or you can get unlimited lookups for one year. You will like the fact that they offer a very solid money back guarantee on their service. First, someone will help you find the number and if it still can't be found, you will get an immediate refund.

    The information they provide from their reverse lookups includes:

  • Name and address of the owner of the cell phone
  • Location of the cell phone
  • Who the carrier for the cell phone is
  • What type of line it is, since they also have landline phones in their database
  • 2. Reverse Mobile

    This site pulls cell phone data from several different sources in order to provide you with the lookup information you need. The site uses data from thousands of public and private sources with more than 70% of cell numbers in the U. S. and almost all of the unlisted phone numbers.

    They also offer a guarantee on their reverse cell phone lookups. If there information on a cell number that is in their coverage but it is not provided, you will get a credit for that search.

    Their search results will include most of the following information:

  • Cell phone name and address for that cell number
  • Information on the carrier for that cell phone
  • Other information available on the owner, like location, gender, age, etc.
  • This site offers different levels of membership depending on length of time and the data you are searching for.

    3. Phone Number Scan

    This site has a simple, Google-like home page that is very easy to use. Just put in the cell phone number you want to look up and the system will retrieve information on it, as well as landline phones, unlisted numbers, pagers and business phones.

    This site has 3 service levels depending on how long you want to use the service.
