How Much Free Information Can I Find Out About Someone With a Reverse Phone Lookup?


Visitors: 205

If you have ever wanted to find out more about an unknown phone number, you may have heard of one major resource - reverse phone lookups. Reverse phone lookups search directories for entries matching the ten-digit phone number you entered, and they can return a lot of different kinds of information. There is a catch, however: not all services are free. In fact, the amount of information you can find varies not only with the type of search you perform, but also what kind of phone was used to make the call.

A reverse phone search can always tell you one thing, which is often key to proceeding with your quest for knowledge. If the unknown number in question originated from business or residential landline, you should have no trouble finding out some basic information for free. Landlines are listed in national public directories like the white and yellow pages. Unless a phone customer has requested that number remain unpublished, you will be able to find out the name and address registered to the phone number in question for free and by going no further. Reverse phone lookups automatically search public directories, and so very often you can find out all the information you need without a charge.

If a reverse phone search reveals that the number in question came from a cell phone, however, it will probably be a little harder, and a little more costly, to find the data you are looking for. Cell phone users are concerned about their privacy, and as result, cell phone companies maintain sole ownership of their consumer directories. These directories are private, and reverse cell phone lookup sites must pay to access the information. As a result, they pass on the cost to those using these services. While reverse phone searches are limited to public directories, a reverse cell phone lookup searches private directories to help you find what you are looking for.

A cell phone lookup will charge a small fee, but for those who really need to reliable and fast data about a phone number, they are a great resource. Of course, traditional reverse phone searches can tell you a lot of equally reliable information for free, so based on your needs and the importance of the situation, you can now decide what to do next.
