Reverse phone number look up

by Big Steve / May 11, 2009 9:20 PM PDT

Are there any free reverse phone number look up websites that will let you know if the number you entered on their site is either a cell number or a landline number and will also let you know the name of the company providing the phone service?

I'd give this yellow pages site a try, they have reverse lookup tools that have been helpful to me in the past. Cheers!

Cell Phone Number Search

If you are looking for information from a cell phone number, then you most likely will not find it for free. I have conducted reverse phone lookups using reverse cell phone search in the past and have been satisfied with the results.

You can try google. Search in this format: "(777) 777-7777". Use the quotes. You may get lucky and someone posted their cell on a social networking site like MySpace or LinkedIn. If the number is on an indexed web page, google should find it.

Reverse cell phone number lookup site

Yes, you can check out this reverse cell phone number lookup site.

It provides free information such as carrier, location(city and state) and phone type(cell phone or home phone).

But if you want to know the name and address of the owner, you need to pay.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
