Cell phone reverse lookup how to match a number to a caller

  1. 1. Cell Phone Reverse Lookup - How to Match a Number to a CallerTrying to find an easy way to identify a wireless number?If so, there are more than a few options available for obtaining fast and accurate answers.With just a wireless number, you can quickly discover more than a few personal details thatshould cast a revealing light on the mysterious number. All you need to do is locate a phonedirectory capable of distributing this kind of information.The way to do this is to simply get on Google, Yahoo or whichever search engine you preferto use to gather information about a subject. If it were me, Id type the words “cell phonereverse lookup” into the search bar and see what turns up.Whats a reverse lookup?The traditional way to search telephone numbers is to search by name. But you can alsoperform a search by telephone number, or a reverse search. This kind of technology is notsomething new. It has always been available to perform a reverse number lookup on alandline and/or business number.This kind of search if also free.Whether you want to search by name or search by telephone number, business and landlinenumbers (and their associated personal details) are considered public information. In order toperform a quick search of either a landline or business number, its no more complicated thanpunching the number into the search bar of your preferred search engine (e.g. Yahoo, Bing orGoogle).The biggest players in this market are companies like Anywho and White Pages. Theyoperate websites that are modern versions of the traditional phone book. These companiesare great for passing out personal information such as a callers name and address.However, if you want to learn more about a person (or if you want to learn more about anunlisted or mobile number) you will need to take your search to another kind of telephonedirectory.The kind of directory I am referring to is one that is not only capable of identifying the sametelephone numbers as free phone directories like White Pages, but also has the ability tomanufacture an extensively detailed report in connection with every other sort of telephonenumber - numbers not found in a free directory.So, here you have two choices: you can either choose to pay a small amount of money for areport or you can elect to go without knowing. Because you are not going to discover thisinformation for free. The wireless companies who collectively control personal informationassociated with mobile numbers are in the business of selling this information.And they like it this way!But its not like they dont have expenses to maintain. Somebody is making sure the satellitesare in working condition and so forth. So when you purchase a report from a reverse phone
  2. 2. directory involving a wireless number, you are paying (at least in part) to offset a wirelesscompanys operating expenses.The fee associated with a cell phone number search report also goes towards the operatingexpenses of the phone directory that actually distributes the report. These reports are notpurchased from the specific wireless company that owns the mobile number you may besearching. This would make things far too complicated for mobile phone searchers. So themajor cell phone companies sell the personal information contained in their databases tocompanies who operate phone directories on the Internet.These companies run fee-based phone directories and are the only legitimate source for theidentification of mobile phone users. And just like everything else in life, there are good andbad reverse telephone directories.So, how should you choose a reverse cell phone directory?In my view, the best way to choose a good directory is to first focus on what you are trying toaccomplish. If you have never used this kind of service before, your best bet is to simplypurchase a single report. These reports generally cost in the $14 - $20 range.But if you think may want to use this kind of service on a regular basis, most directories offerusers the option of purchasing a yearly subscription to their service. Essentially what a“yearly subscription” offers is the ability to perform unlimited people searches andlandline/business number searches for an entire year. On top of this, some directories offerdiscounts on other personal information reports that cover civil and criminal histories.Whether a subscription is something suitable for you will depend on your objectives and athorough reading of the phone directories guidelines and/or terms of service. I personallydont have need for such a yearly subscription, and have only purchased reports individually.And I purchase reports from a company where I know full well how the transaction is going tobe handled.The way I do this is by purchasing reports from a company that has its payments processedthrough Clickbank. If you have not heard of Clickbank, they are the leading retailer of digitalproducts on the Internet. And a mobile callers name, address and other personal informationare considered a form of digital product.Companies who wish to sell products through Clickbank first must be approved. Onceapproved, the company must comply with Clickbanks transaction guidelines. And one ofthose guidelines happens to be that a transaction can be refunded for up to 60 days after thedate of purchase. This is the single best way for a consumer to protect himself and feelconfident he or she is purchasing from a reputable company.Resource BoxThe best suggestion I can give in regard to obtaining a cell phone number lookup is topurchase reports individually if you feel this kind of service is something you will need onlysporadically. Only look into yearly subscription if you believe you may have need to identifytelephone numbers on a regular basis. Companies love the up-sell. And sometimes they
