When we get those phone calls that hang up when the answering machine says "please leave a message " I would like to see just who the caller was. Seems like they display most landlines, but they require payment to lookup cell phone numbers.

Is there REALLY a free reverse lookup service, or is that 'just the way it is'??

411.com is free but I don't think it does cell numbers. I use it all the time. It also had a reverse address too.

if you are looking to do reverse lookups to find the CSA, I would use reversephonelookup.com or whitepages.com . I work at a cell phone store and I tend to use the first of the two regularly, but it doesnt pinpoint exactly where cell devices are

I don't know that http://411.com is likely to be any better than http://whitepages.com
I've had sites like this inaccurately tell me that my cell phone is a landline!

http://stuff4you.biz/backgroundchecks/reverse-phone-lookups/ gives good steps into finding out who called you. To be honest, there is no guaranteed way that I know of (well, if you were in law enforcement or a private investigator you could probably find out with 99% certainty)

http://www2.onlinereverselookup.com has pretty good information on reverse phone lookup websites. They also have some free and paid recommendations. Good luck.

I've had some luck using the Number Guru app on my phone. Might want to give it a shot.

I hope this will help you, one time I used phoneinfosearch.com in searching annoying phone callers. It is free to search, make a background check of company or people you are dealing with.

What are their sources for getting cell phone numbers, I wonder (whichever company it is.) People don't want their cell numbers published, so its a bit unethical.
