When we receive a phone call from the number which we don’t know, we usually can’t figure out if the number is a cell phone a land line or maybe something else. It may appear to you that it doesn’t matter, but actually it can make a big difference when it comes to reversing such a phone number. But don’t worry, in this article I’ll show you an easy method of searching all types of phone numbers which you can think of, just like cellular, toll-free, business and residential lines.
The first place to visit when you need to find more details about some phone number will be a website called WhitePages.com. The name may seem familiar to you, since you surely know Yellow Pages. A phone directory containing solely business listings. However, WhitePages.com offer you possibility to search for residential listings as well as business. The searches are free and usually retrieve a lot of records, and thus you always have to narrow your criteria in order to find the person you need to find. The website is easy to use and there is no point in describing it in this brief article.
If you don’t manage to find the phone number using WhitePages.com this will surely mean that the phone number you look for is a cell phone or an unlisted phone number. These types of numbers cannot appear in a public phone directory such as WhitePages and thus you will have to use a cell phone directory. Unfortunately, most of them will charge you, but these which claim to be free will never give you any accurate results. Usually they just show you the carrier of the cellphone, but in most cases it’s not accurate either. That’s the reason why you should stick to paid cell phone lookups and be satisfied with the results that the service yields.
A good cell phone directory will cover unlisted phone numbers as well as toll free, so you will be able to check the number even if it’s not a cellular line. The prices can range between a few dollars for a single search up to even hundreds if you need to perform bulk queries on daily basis. This option is of course meant for companies, but I thought it’s worth mention that if you order the lookups in bulk, you will save a lot of money, since the cost of single search will plummet.
