This article was originally written in 2010, but a lot has changed since then. We’ve since updated the post with the most current information.


Have you ever wondered whom a phone number belongs to? Maybe some spammer keeps calling you How to Stop Annoying Telemarketers & Robocalls From Calling You Are you tired of being called by prerecorded messages and robots? Here's why that happens and what you can do to stop them. Read More , or you’re doing research on a person. Whatever the reason, a pair of phonebook-style websites can provide some helpful information for your quest.

The first is Cell Revealer. Enter a U.S.-based phone number and you can find some basic information about it: whether the number you entered is a landline or mobile phone and the city/state of origin. Cell Revealer also tells you what carrier/company (Sprint, Verizon, etc.) powers the line.

Cell Revealer provides this info for free, but offers a “full report” too. These allegedly include relatives, date of birth, and aliases. Of course, the reports aren’t free, and redirect you to another site called PeopleFinders. You can buy a single report for $10.

Frankly, these sites are a dime a dozen and there’s no guarantee that the information you’re looking for will be available on these pages. We recommend sticking to the free information How to Find Information on Someone Online: 7 Simple Steps Want to track a person down? The web has several powerful search tools and networks to help you find someone online. Read More for the basics and foregoing the reports.


A similar site is Phone Lookup. After entering a number, you’ll see the general location of its owner and whether it’s a cell or landline phone. This one doesn’t offer much else, aside from letting you add a comment/complaint for political calls, telemarketers, and the like.

However, the lack of “reporting” options asking you to pay for more information is refreshing. This one is worth a try if Cell Revealer doesn’t find anything.

    A bit alarming. I don't think there is "THE caller id name database", caller id name & number is transmitted along with the call. Wouldn't any database have to be created by some disreputable company routing the call along it's way, and then here violating the public trust for profit...

    These are all costly services, Cell Phone Tracker (North America) even get WOT warnings. I'd check those links with WOT before you post them. Probably not a sound editorial idea to endorse a site with WOT warnings.

    I tested both and neither worked. I'm sure they just want you to buy their free service.

    Neither of these services were able to retrieve anything on the number I used to test them and furthermore both gave inaccurate location and phone type information. I would say both of these services are as useless for cell phones as all the rest.

      Yeah works much better than those two. But it's true you can look up numbers in Facebook.
