Reverse cell phone lookups can stop annoying calls in their tracks

Reverse cell phone lookups can stop annoying calls in their tracks
One of the great things about technology is that advances are often made in response to problems we all face. Before caller ID was invented, there was no real way to tell who was on the other end of a phone call, short of calling the operator and asking. Now, with cell phones, a degree of that anonymity is now back since most phone books don’t bother listing cell phone numbers along side land line numbers. Thankfully, reverse cell phone lookups allow you to pinpoint the owner of a phone number, even if it belongs to a cell phone, and it only takes a few seconds to perform.
A reverse cell phone lookup uses all of the public record information currently on the Internet to “figure out” who is on the other end of any phone number. It doesn’t matter if it is a telemarketer bothering you during your dinner or a prank phone call trying to get a rise out of you. The power of a reverse call phone lookup can help to locate the true owner of any phone number. The most powerful reverse phone lookups are only a simple google search away.

What sort of information can you expect from a reverse cell phone lookup? In most cases, you’ll be able to get the name that the phone number is registered to, in addition to several other pieces of information, including an address, a company name and sometimes even an email address. Since cell phone numbers aren’t registered with the local phone book, you really have no other way to protect yourself from annoying phone calls, other than through a reverse cell phone lookup. You can protect yourself, your family and your phone bill by catching and ending annoying phone calls before they become a huge problem with a reverse cell phone lookup. A reverse cell phone lookup can not only save you from dozens of annoying phone calls, it can help you sleep through the night knowing that you won’t be awoken by prank callers or by unsolicited sales calls.

Here are a few available options:

yes verizon blocks there subscribers information as they feel that it is their duty to not give it out. It will never say the actually callers name just the state they are calling from.

Note - anything much past the city information (like WHOSE NUMBER) is NOT free. Ultimate Phone Directory gives out carrier information, but it got my carrier wrong - I switched a few years back & it gave my old one.

It’s always better to use a website that provides paid reverse cell phone lookup services; since it needs a lot of money to maintain a proper cell phone number database. And, so those who claim to conduct cell phone lookup at free of cost are all bogus; they charges money afterward. There are several sites that provide the most reliable fast and accurate result for minimum charges. You may use AAfter to get a comprehensive list of such sites. Just put the number in the search box and get it done.

But look at this one, it´s not paid at all and works as a database entered by users: http:/www.tellows.com

This is a great article. I had a telemarketer that would not stop calling. They would call during dinner, late at night, while I was at work. It was ruining my life. I found this site:http://www.numberinvestigator.com and decided to look up their info. After that, I threatened to report them and they stopped instantly. Telemarketers can really take their toll on you if you let them!

If its a cell number calling you, there is little chance of tracing the owner. You can try different free reverse phone lookups but the chances I would say 50/50 to get the correct name of the caller. Source:http://www.prweb.com/releases/2011/6/prweb8591834.htm
