A service that provides personal information connected to unknown cell phone numbers is going to be in high demand as long people maintain their natural level of curiosity about the identity of such calls.
And there is both good and bad in that.
The good news is that you can discover a great deal of personal information pertaining to just about any cell phone number in the United States. All you need is a full cell phone number (area code included) and a reputable and reliable web site from which to perform your search, and within seconds you can have your curiosity satisfied regarding the identity of virtually any unknown wireless phone number.
The bad news (if you can call it that) is that you won't be able to obtain this information without being relieved of some money for the ability to get your hands on this information. The reason I qualify the word “bad” is because, if you are anything like me, you do NOT want anyone to have the ability to find out a name and address (among other personal information readily available in connection to mobile phone numbers) WITHOUT paying a fee.
The reason is simple. Most people still value the relative privacy associated with their mobile number. And to keep things that way as much as possible, it remains a fact the only way to discover an unknown wireless caller's name, address and other pertinent personal information is to purchase this data - at least in the United States, that is.
Now for those of you who may never have used a fee-based reverse phone directory, you may wonder what reasons actually compel so many people to purchase so many of these identity reports each and everyday.
Well, as I mentioned at the beginning - it mostly boils down to natural curiosity.
But for the sake of those who need a bit more of an explanation than that, I'll lay out the most common reasons - which represent the most typical explanations for people getting on fee-based reverse phone directories every single day and then actually paying hard-earned money to discover who is behind an unknown mobile number that just recently showed up on their phone (or one that keeps showing up - even more intriguing!).
Peace of Mind
The most common reason people perform reverse cell phone searches is to gain peace of mind or to get rid of the stress and anxiety associated with not knowing the identity of a person behind a certain mobile phone number.
Who knows - maybe the person behind the calls is some kind of nut.
If this is the case, then finding out who the caller is as quickly as possible is the best way of handling the matter. I can't speak for you, but if I start getting phone calls repeatedly from numbers I am not familiar with - and if the callers behind these unknown number also either (a) don't leave an identifying message, or (b) leave some kind of obnoxious, annoying or threatening message, I'm going to do all I can to put a stop to such calls as quickly as possible.
Allay Suspicions, Fears, Anxieties, etc.
For those of you who are wondering whether your significant other has a back-door lover, you can start rooting through phone numbers you don't recognize on his or her phone to start getting down to the real lowdown of the whole matter. Cheaters are notoriously sloppy and can never hide their tracks forever. This means that performing a reverse phone lookup on numbers you are not familiar with in the phone of your wife/husband/boyfriend/girlfriend is a great way to get to the bottom of things in a hurry.
Or, if you concerned about the people one of your kids has been speaking or texting with on the phone, you can just as easily perform a cell phone lookup on unknown numbers found in your kid's phone to deal with that issue too!
Okay, let's suppose you just met a fabulous girl or guy (or at least seems that way!) at a sporting event, barbecue, wedding or some other type of social setting - and that person gives you his/her phone number.
What can you do?
Well, for starters, you can conduct a mobile phone search to check and see if the phone number connected to the name given to you actually checks out!
Please don't underestimate just how many goofballs and crazies there are in this world! If you have any suspicions about this person at all, a great way to start getting to the heart of the matter is by confirming whether the person connected with the phone number given to you is, in fact, the person who actually owns the phone number.
Locate Lost Friends/Relatives/Cell-Mates, etc.
Here's a scenario: a phone call comes in from an unknown number. And maybe (just maybe) the person behind this number also doesn't have the presence of mind to leave an identifying message, or is unable to leave an identifying message because your voice-mail message box is full, or, for some other reason or the next, the only thing you have to possibly identify this person is the phone number captured on your caller id.
Now, if you are like me, you can just choose to disregard the call entirely and wait to see if the number calls again. If and when that happens, you can simply choose to answer the call or wait to see if the person leaves a message this time. If, again, no message is left, you may want to consider identifying the number with a cell phone directory just to have the matter dealt with once and for all.
Who knows, maybe the person calling you is a long-lost relative or friend from high school, college, armed services, or possibly even drug-rehab, jail or prison!
Whatever the case may be, I can tell you that performing a reverse phone search will reveal the answers in short order.
So there you have it, some of the most popular reasons for a doing a cell phone lookup !
