You may receive a telephone call from a phone number you don’t recognise, and will probably ask yourself, whose phone number is this – especially if you get several anonymous calls from the same phone number. Or perhaps you found a phone number on your spouse or partner’s cell phone, or written down on a scrap of paper in their wallet or purse, and you’re suspicious of who they might have been talking to. There are several reasons why you might want to find out whose phone number it is.
So, now you’ve got the phone number, how do you go about putting your mind to rest, or confirming your suspicions one way or another? Well, there are a few things you can do which don’t cost anything.
The simplest one, if you’re feeling brave enough, is to simply call the number and ask who it is. If you don’t want to do this, and a lot of people wouldn’t want to, then get a friend to call for you. If you’re a girl, get a guy friend to call for you, and if you’re a guy, yes, you guessed it, ask a female friend to call the phone number. It’s much easier for someone of the same sex as the caller to make that sort of call without attracting the suspicions of the person at the other end. Of course, this method won’t always work, especially if the person whose phone number it is doesn’t want to be identified.
So, what next? Well, you could try Googling the number – you never know, you might get lucky, although it’s a long shot. While you’re on Google, it’s probably a good idea to look for some free Reverse Phone Number lookup websites, and give those a try. There are a few of them around, and you might be lucky, but to be honest, the databases they use aren’t that comprehensive, and if you think about it, would you give that sort of information away for free if people are prepared to pay for it? Probably not.
This brings us to the most effective way to find out who the number calling you belongs to. You’ll need to use a paid Reverse Phone Number Lookup service. They only cost a few dollars, and they are much more reliable and comprehensive than the free services. Look at it this way. If you don’t spend just a few bucks now, you could be worrying about the mystery phone number for quite a while, and causing yourself unnecessary stress, just for the sake of the price of a couple of movie tickets. Think about it – it’s not that much to pay for peace of mind.
If you are wondering whose phone number is this, there are several sites which can help you, but which one do you choose?
