Re: reverse cell phone lookup

i think the US Govt made all cell providers promise not to reveal such private matters publicly.  so those services are doing the devil's work.

Most, if not all of the valid look up services will give you basic information about the number, provider, location, etc If you want any more detailed information like name, address, etc that is when they start charging.

Intelius.com is a good one. But you have to pay for it. I used it before.

That article is just a click-farm email trying to direct you to some stupid website that wants to charge $39.95 to look up a number. Don't waste your time.

ciddb.com works for some cell phones. It is a caller id database.

The majority of reverse id looks ups will give basic informaiton for free, but charge for more detailed information such as name, address, etc. Add to the fact the number may come back as unlisted and you are still charged by some providers

Re: reverse cell phone lookup

If someone calls us we should be able to get a digital portfolio (quick request and response) on that number. It's only fair considering corps are, pretty much freely, using and selling our info. A name, for example, should be the (intellectual) property of the parents. I don't know why they are allowed to use our information. It's really a form of theft IMHO.

the carrier does not provide reverse number lookup for personal numbers, it is a 3rd party that provides the information, and that is from public data bases that have usage charges.
