Finding owners of phone numbers used to be almost impossible due to lack of technology and restricted databases. But thanks to the recent boom in social media and telecom innovative technology, it is now easy to do a reverse phone lookup. You will need a computer, Internet access and a few minutes of your time.
There are many types of phone numbers you can search - from land line to mobile or unlisted numbers. While not all of them can be traced or traced for free, some information about any number is readily available.
Since most people have switched to a mobile lifestyle, using cell phones to make everyday calls almost 100% of the time, there is a growing need for a reverse mobile search directory that could identify the person behind a cell phone number.
But tracking cell phone calls may be not easy. Taking into account the fact that there is no universal mobile 411 directory and mobile carriers like Sprint and Verizon do not publish a cell phone directory either, cell phone numbers may be almost impossible to trace.
Yet, there are countless websites that promise instant and information packed cell phone searches. Moreover, many of them claim to provide this info for free. Once you go through any of such services, you will quickly discover that the search is not only NOT free, but also it might return NO info about the number after you have paid.
Intec developers have published a new online phone number lookup widget that uses real time data feeds from top rated directories and can provide anyone with the type of the number line, service company and tentative registered location shown on a map. Clearly, if you need more info than that, it depends on the phone line whether you will be able to procure it and how you should proceed your search.
Land line business numbers or individual numbers are free to look up. Mobile numbers may be restricted and you will need to use a premium directory. If that directory can provide you with the name but not address, for example, a background check with another directory may be necessary if you want to know more details.
