How to Find a Person by Their Phone Number

Since the beginning of the age of caller ID, we have been able to know who is calling before answering the phone. Unfortunately, knowing a phone number does not always tell us who or where they are. Thankfully, there are ways to find out using something called a reverse number search. There are free searches that will allow you to find a person or business if their landline phone is registered in any phone book. However, if you wish to find someone using a cell phone number, you will probably have to pay to do so.
