Find Out Who That Number Belongs To

Technology has come a long way. I remember going over our phone bill, this was years ago. There was an unfamiliar number on there, and I was trying to figure out why a fairly lengthy long distance call had been placed, from our phone to that number. I ended up calling the number to try and figure out who it belonged to, but I'm really bad at that. I mean, it is kind of weird calling a number and asking who it belongs to. The person on the other end doesn't want to tell you who they are, because you're the one calling and you should know. And I didn't want to give out my name to a supposed stranger! Come to find out, the number belonged to a friend. We really had placed that call, but I just didn't recognize the number.

Nowadays I could have saved myself the trouble and embarrassment by using this Reverse Phone Lookup service, bestreversephone.org. I would just have needed the area code and phone number, which I had from my phone bill, and I could have immediately found out who the number belonged to. This service is different than others I've seen in the past though, because it can find out who any phone number belongs to, not just landlines, but cell phones and even unlisted numbers. I've tried other reverse phone lookups only to get no information because it was a cell phone. Each report also gives you the phone owner's name and address, line type, phone company, other household members, and more.

Another thing that sounds really useful about bestreversephone.org is that, if you have an old number for someone, you can get their updated information, too. If your old friend isn't on Facebook, this might be just the way for you to get back in touch.

  1. I would have thought that was an invasion of someones privacy especially if they have chosen to remain unlisted!
