How to Get Names From Cell Phone Numbers

By Dan Taylor

You can have many reasons for wanting to look up the owner of a particular cell phone number. You may want to know the name of a person who has been harassing you with threatening or unsolicited phone calls, you may wish to find out more about a person's background or you may simply want to get access to details like an address that you aren't able to ask for at the present time. Cell phone numbers are more difficult to look up than listed residential phone numbers, but a few companies can get the information for you for a price.
