How to Do a Reverse-Lookup of Cellphone Numbers in the US
There’s so much data out there these days. So much that we sometimes pay extra for so-called privacy. Many people get and use their cell phones so that records are not tied back to their personal home addresses.
Yet little do people know that up to 70% of all cell phone numbers can be tied to specific people and other personal records. 95% of all “unlisted” numbers with Verizon and other local carriers are actually able to be looked-up with ease through various databases.
Verizon itself offers reverse look-up of phone numbers (if they are listed) at their superpages.com. A little know search feature at Google is the reverse phone number look-up for residential listings. You can simply enter the phone number as a search query (212-555-1212) or use “phonebook: 212-555-1212”
ESSISTME TIP: By chance, if you want to OPT-OUT of making your telephone number available through Google’s Reverse Lookup feature, you can submit a request online.
Reversemobile.com is one such service that lets you do a reverse look-up of cell phone numbers specifically. You can find out to whom a cell phone number belongs. And then if you’re interested, you can purchase even more detailed reports such as property reports, criminal history, civil and court records, etc.
Is too much data NOT a good thing? Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
