What is it about about calls from unknown wireless telephone numbers that can be so bothersome?
Sometimes calls such as these come from numbers that look vaguely familiar, but not familiar enough to make the decision to actually answer the call. Nobody wants to find themselves talking with a person they would have avoided had they known the identity of the cell phone number prior to picking up the call - or even after the call showed up on the “missed calls” list of a mobile phone.
But there is a way to identify calls such as these.
You know that, right?
If not, what's left of this article will give you enough information to be able to find a good resource from which to identify any kind of telephone call.
When searching mobile numbers, it's important to understand the distinction between “free” phone directories like White Pages and “paid” phone directories like what are commonly referred to as “reverse cell phone directories”.
Free phone directories are useful for one thing – and one thing only. If the telephone number you are searching is a listed landline or business number, you can easily learn the owner's name and address without an expenditure of money. This is because landline and business numbers (and the personal information connected to these numbers) are considered publicly available information in the United States.
The only caveat to this is that the owner of the telephone number must have also chosen to have the number listed in the phone company's publicly available directory.
But when it comes to identifying the owner of a wireless number, your search will not be able to be performed with a free phone directory. And there's a simple reason for this.
Wireless numbers are NOT publicly available information. The personal information behind numbers such as these is privately owned by the particular cellular carrier which actually owns the number in question. So this fact alone rules out finding the information you are looking for without spending some of your hard earned money.
This means a “free” phone directory will be of no use to you.
But a reverse mobile phone directory will answer every question you have. What a directory such as this does is purchase the sensitive personal information behind every mobile number from every cellular company that does business in America.
This data is then assembled into one central database where anyone can search the owner of any mobile number, regardless of which mobile carrier owns the number. So, you don't have to worry about whether the number is owned by Verizon, Nextel, or any other cellular carrier.
All you need to do is enter the full telephone number into a “search bar” the reverse phone directory provides, hit the “enter” or “return” key on your keyboard, and wait for your report.
It's that easy.
And the report you will have available to purchase will disclose much more than just just the caller's name and most recent address.
