There may be various reasons why someone would want to find the origins of a particular number. You may need information on a nuisance caller, for example, or find out who is associated with a phone number that you don't recognize on your phone bill. Whatever your reason, finding a Verizon Wireless number and its corresponding owner information can be simpler to do than many people may think.
Go to the Verizon Reverse Lookup website (see Resources section) to enter the number that you are trying to find or verify as a Verizon wireless number. The reverse lookup is a free service that will verify for you whether or not your inquiry number belongs to Verizon's service, as well as additional owner information.
Enter the number, with area code, into the display window. Double-check the number to make sure that you are entering it accurately. A misplaced digit will result in incorrect information rendered or no information rendered at all. Otherwise, the service will display the number's information for you.
Some Verizon numbers are protected, so reverse lookup information will not display. In these cases, use a paid service like Reverse Phone Detective (see Resources section) to find the Verizon phone number and information.
