Reverse Telephone Lookup: A Fast Technique To Get Information
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Most people think that the only way to use people search sites is with the correct name, a current address and/or a telephone number. This is not always the case. There are times when you may use reverse telephone lookup to find the information that you need.

An example of when you may need to do this is when you have a phone number showing up on your phone bill, your telephone’s history or when you have found a slip of paper in your spouse’s pocket with only a telephone number printed on it. During these times, you want to know who is calling your phone or who your spouse is intending to call.

The process for the reverse telephone lookup is simple: you log on to a people search site and then enter the phone number that you have. Most of them will have several options to choose from, including the reverse telephone lookup. Once you enter the phone number into the proper place, the site will generate the results which may be instant or may take up to twenty four hours.

The person who is listed as the “owner” of that particular telephone number should come up, but the amount of information that you will be given will depend on the site and its policy. For some pay sites, the reverse telephone lookup results will be limited to a name but no other information unless you actually pay for the full report.

The reverse telephone lookup process can be used on either the pay sites, in addition to other searches so that the information can be cross checked and verified or can be done on the free sites, however the information may not be as in depth on these sites and there may not be as many databases searched this way.

A pay site can generate a full report, but the amount of information that is generated can take longer to be fully realized. Some sites advertise faster results, but always read the fine print, because they may take as long as twenty four hours to complete even this simple search.

The reverse telephone lookup is beneficial because it can allow you to find information even if you only have this one statistic. You can also use the reverse telephone lookup to cross check the information that you have from other searches to confirm and verify it. This is especially beneficial in the case of people with very similar sounding names or very common last names.

There may be hundreds of John J. Smiths, after all, with several of them listed in the same city. Because they may be related to one another, you may find them listed for the same address so using the reverse telephone lookup can be the easiest way to determine which is the right John J. Smith.

A word of warning for the reverse telephone lookup however: be careful of using the smaller or lesser known sites especially those that are advertised with pop up or banner ads- they may only want the personal information for less than positive reasons.
