Here you go.
You just climb into bed, spend some time giving your wife some of some badly need attention, and are finally drifting to sleep when the phone rings. And on the 6th ring you finally wake up to point where can answer the phone – only to have the person hang up.
And that’s the 4th time this week.
Something has to give, you think.
Now you’re finally going to get serious about ending these calls for good.
You grab the number off your caller ID and call the number back. But this presents a new problem. Not only can you not reach this person on the phone, but there also is no voicemail set up to take your message.
Now, the only recourse you have left to stop these prank phone calls is to get on the website of a reverse phone directory to gather the caller’s name and whatever other personal information you can find out. Then you can simply forward what you learn to your local authorities and let things play out from there. The cops usually have a good way of making sure these types of calls stop.
But you need to first know what kind of reverse phone directory to choose because not all of them are the same. Some reverse phone directories focus squarely on landline numbers (which are free), while others focus mainly on mobile numbers (but are fee based), but also cover the full gambit of telephone numbers.
If you discover the number making these bothersome phone calls has been coming from a cell phone, the paid reverse phone directory is going to be your only option. Cell phone numbers are still considered private information in this country; so identifying these numbers will cost you a small sum of money.
But this fee will enable to you effectively learn anything you need to know in order to set things in motion to stop the prank phone calls for good.
Where Is a Reverse Wireless Number Lookup Performed?
There are many phone directories online that are able to offer identifying information behind mobile numbers. But, just like everything else in this world, there are good and bad phone directories.
The good directories will not promise free answers in response to reverse mobile phone lookups. They will maintain an ever-expanding database of phone numbers that includes not just cell phone numbers, but also landline numbers, unlisted landline numbers, fax numbers, pager numbers, and even VoIP numbers.
They will offer users a way to perform searches that are entirely confidential.
They will not charge for an initial search.
They will maintain a very generous refund policy.
Much of the information collected by these directories is a matter of public information, but information behind telephone numbers like cellular numbers is collected a little differently. The directories have to gain access to private databases. A fee is required to access these databases.
So this cost is passed on to searchers who want to gain access to a particular mobile number’s owner.
How to Perform A Cell Phone Lookup
This is the easiest part to understand because all you need to do is take the number you have and input it into a page on the directory’s website. The site will then offer you results that include a number of different payment plans.
From there, you just decide whether a membership is best suited to your needs, or whether you would simply prefer to pay for one report.
