It's bad enough when you have to deal with mystery phone numbers you encounter on your monthly bill or on your telephone, but finding a strange number or two on your child's cell bill may leave you feeling a little more concerned. Therefore, it's a very good idea to keep a close eye on your kids’ telephone activity, and teach them safety rules to ensure they have the best protection from predators, and also to make certain that they don't take advantage of the fact that you pay for their cell phone usage.
Here's how you can look into those mystery phone numbers on your child's bill:
- Find out if your kid knows who owns the foreign number.
- Run a free cellphone lookup on the ten digits if your child is not forthcoming with information, or they claim not to know.
- You might need to take your search to a commercial cellular directory if you wish to learn the identity of a wireless caller. This will not be found with any backwards search for free.
Once you have completed your investigation, your next goal is to make it very clear to your children that you don't want them giving out their number to anyone they don't know, or you haven't approved of. Your teen may not be impressed with your rules, but if you are paying the bill, it is your right to know what goes on. Furthermore, let them know that you will be checking the bill every month, so if you ever come across telephone numbers you don't recognize, you will confront them about it, and conduct an investigation if necessary.
Due to the fact that you may need to run more than one cell phone lookup search in a short span of time, it may be in your best interest to use a commercial trace site that not only has an impressive directory, but also offers memberships. This is when you pay a one-time fee for a limited time (I. E. one year) for unlimited searches.
Remember, your child's safety and phone privacy is too important to allow number mysteries to go unsolved.
