How to Get an Address From a Cell Number

By Stephanie Ellen

There is no national cell phone directory, so it may seem impossible to look up a cell phone number and get an address. However, if someone has called you and you know their phone number, you may be able look up their address with a reverse phone directory search. Reverse phone directories pull information from sources on the Internet, marketing databases and online forms to compile searchable directories that may contain the information you seek.
