Checking out the face behind a phone number has gotten easier. Use a phone number to reveal the name and address of its owner. Instead of wondering who is calling you, find out for sure.
If you have a phone number on your phone that keeps on calling you, but you don't know to whom the number belongs, look it on the Internet. Go to the AnyWho website; select "reverse lookup" at the top of the page and type in the phone number with the area code. Click Find. If this does not bring up the name of the person with an address, proceed Step 2.
If the number did not show up on the AnyWho website, it is most likely a mobile or unlisted number. Go to the Phone Registry website. On this website, type in a mobile phone number or landline. You will receive geographic information, but the site requests registration and a credit card number before revealing the name of the individual associated with the phone number.
If you have a mobile phone, download the free "Whitepages" app available for most of the smartphones currently on the market including Android, BlackBerry and iPhone. With the Lookup Option, unlimited reverse lookups cost less than $3.00 a month.
