Search For A Name By Phone Number Using A Lookup Service

Thanks to the power of the internet and specialized services that have managed to gather mobile numbers as well as home ones, it's now possible to search for a name by phone number. Anyone who has ever found themselves with a number, but no name, knows how difficult it can be to figure out whether or not the number is worth dialing back. And with many telemarketers using mobile numbers to call from, it's more important than ever to figure out exactly who it is that's dialing your home.

For home phone numbers, also called 'land lines', the process is fairly straightforward and most online telephone directories offer users the chance to run a simple search for the information they need, usually for free. But when it comes to mobile phone numbers, the process is a bit different. The main reason is that any reverse phone lookup service has to access the database of the telephone provider. Since they're accessing these provider databases, they have to pay a fee to the provider. That fee is then passed on to the user of the service.

In other words, you'll usually have to pay for a simple search when you need to search for a name by using a phone number. In some cases those telemarketer numbers and even collection agencies will often be listed for free, but it's not always the case.

With that in mind, the question really comes down to which online search tool offers the best results at the best price. The process is usually pretty simple – you'll enter the phone number into a search field and then be presented with the owner's name. Full searches also give you addresses, Google map locations, and much more. The key is to figure out how you're paying for the search and what you get for the price.

There are three main ways that you'll be charged for a reverse lookup. You'll either pay a per-search fee, pay a small fee and then get unlimited searches, or run a free search and then pay based on the amount of information that you want. Each one is worth thinking about, but if you're unsure of which is the right one just spend a few minutes comparing the prices to one another. You should be able to quickly and easily figure out which phone number lookup service is the best for you to use and be on your way to getting a name to go with that number.
