How to Look Up Unlisted Phone Numbers

By: Kim Roach

Unlike landline numbers, cell phones numbers and unlisted numbers don't come with a phone book. To find the owner of an unlisted number, you'll need a reverse cell phone directory. These are third-party services that provide thousands of public, private, and proprietary databases.

There are a number of reasons you might want to perform a reverse cell phone lookup.

1. Track down a prank caller.
2. Find an old classmate.
3. Find out who owns an unlisted number.
4. Track down a family member you've lost touch with.
5. Uncover a "suspicious" number on your spouse's phone.
6. Track down a prank caller.
7. Identify unknown numbers that you find on your caller ID.
8. Investigate an unknown number on your phone bill.

You can do all of this and more with a reverse phone directory. All you need is a person's phone number, which can be obtained from your caller ID or your local telephone company.

The key to uncovering this information is to find a good reverse phone directory. But you have to be careful, there are plenty of scams out there. That's why I have done an exhaustive amount of research to find out exactly which ones are the real deal.

I'll tell you about which company I like best in a moment. But first, I'd like to tell you more about what kind of information you can find with this kind of service.

An official phone report will give you the phone owner's full name and address, address history for the past 20 years, date of birth and phone carrier information.

Once you have become a member, you will also gain neighborhood info, information on relatives and associates, background checks, reverse email lookup, criminal history, court records, marriage and divorce records, and more.

You can find records for people on almost anything except for very sensitive personal information such as financial data, credit card data, passwords, social security numbers and account numbers.

Now for which reverse cell phone directory I recommend. It's a company known as Reverse Mobile. While researching different companies online, this was one of the few that consistently got great reviews.

What impresses me most about this company is their commitment to customer service. In minutes, you can start searching for your desired information and print out the results directly from your computer.

They provide one of the largest databases of unlisted phone numbers and cell phone records, allowing you to uncover in-depth information on almost anyone.
