If you have ever needed to reverse lookup a cell phone number, you probably didn't really know where to start. The problem with cell phone numbers is that they're not publicly listed like landline numbers. You won't have any success in trying to look them up using one of the many free phone directories on the internet.
However, and this is the good news, there are free methods to lookup cell phone numbers.
First of all, use a search engine like Google or Yahoo. Many cell phone numbers are being published by their owner without even realizing they can be found using a search engine. You can use this to your advantage. Just enter the number you want to look up into a search engine of your choice. Remember to use quotes to improve the quality of the results you will get. You might have to browse through the first ten or twenty pages of search results to see if any of them are relevant to your search.
If the search engine didn't find the number, you could try using voluntary cell phone directories. Unfortunately though, these directories only have a very limited number of cell phone numbers listed. People have to voluntarily enter their own number to be listed, and as you can imagine, this doesn't happen very often. Would you enter your private number into a directory accessible by millions of people world-wide? I don't think so.
These limited possibilities to lookup a cell phone number is the reason professional reverse lookup directories have become more common. These websites buy hundreds of millions cell phone numbers from cell phone carriers each year and therefore the chance for you to find the number you're looking for is quite high if you use one of these services.
