If there is anyone you'd want to have help you with a mystery, it would be Sherlock Holmes and his deductive reasoning. But just because he's a fictional character, it doesn't mean that you can't be just as successful in finding out information that you need to know by using your own logic and available tools, as well as a good internet connection.
If you want to follow Holmsian deduction, then you'll need to make sure that you know all of your clues and all of your resources and then apply them to allow you to discover the solution. If you lay everything out in a logical pattern, and apply proper deduction, then you will have the answer revealed to you.
In the case of a mysterious number that you cannot identify, such as one from your Caller ID, or that you've found somewhere else, the process works the same way. You simply need to gather up the digits and head to the resources you have to reveal the owner of the number. In this case, you simply need to go online and find a good quality reverse lookup site to work with the “evidence" that you have.
Enter your mystery number into the site and then see what research it can do on your behalf into the country's telephone directories. Whether wireless or landlines, you'll be able to effectively perform a query and discover who's behind those unknown calls.
If Sherlock Holmes was around today instead of over a hundred years ago, the internet and this kind of investigation site would certainly be among his most used tools. Move over magnifying glass, detectives have a new symbol for finding the right information. It's a phone number search , and it's becoming one of the most widely used resources on the net for protecting privacy, finding out who has called, looking into numbers, and other queries.
Dr. Watson would certainly be including this instrument in his descriptions if Holmes was ever to travel through time to experience the searching abilities available today. In fact, Sherlock may not want to return to his time when he saw what was possible with the world wide web.
