To find an address from a phone number is not really all that difficult these days. Thanks to the internet it has become a fairly simple task. There are different ways to find an address from a phone number. Some are kind of long winded and we will try and avoid those but some are instant. In this article I want to uncover the fastest methods for identifying where someone lives when all you have is their phone number.

Full Number

First of all, if you want fast results you will need the persons complete number if you want to find the address that is linked to it. To find an address from a phone number that is incomplete will be a nightmare. Thousands of people use my advice everyday but some of them have numbers that have digits missing or they fail to find out the area code.

Without a complete phone number you will be seriously damaging your chances of locating that all important address. Check the number first and ensure it contains the correct amount of digits. Just one number short can mean the difference between a successful search and an unsuccessful search.

Landline Numbers

When you need to find an address from a phone number you should first understand what sort of phone number it is. Is it a landline number or is it a cell phone number? Depending on what kind of phone number will determine what method you use to try and find out the address that belongs to the number.

If it's a landline number then you can usually look up the white pages online and carry out a search for the landline number you have. The great thing about landline numbers is that they're in the public domain so any search you carry out for a landline number should be free. Unless the individual has opted to register their number as ex directory, then you should have no problem to find an address from a phone number of this type.

Cell Phone Numbers

Cell phone numbers are the tricky ones. A cell phone number is classed as private to an individual and so is not in the public domain. Carrying out a free search using the white pages just won't work as the white pages only contains landline numbers. So how can you quickly find an address from a phone number if the number is for a cell phone?

The first method I wish to share with you is not instant but is definitely worth a try. The reason I say this is that that this method is free whereas the next method will cost you a small fee. If you're on a budget then a quick Google search is worth a go. It is really important for this method to be successful that you have the full number as I mentioned earlier.

Simply enter the number into the search bar and click search. You may have to scroll through quite a few pages but there is a chance you may find an address from a phone number if the owner of the phone is a member of some sort of social network. They may have added their number to their personal profile. If so then there is a chance you may locate them. However, it's very rare that people add their number to their social profile so success is limited.

The second produces instant results and you have a 98% chance to find an address from a phone number. This method tends to work on both landline and cell phone numbers. It is known as a reverse phone lookup online. There are plenty of sites that offer this service but they vary in price and accuracy.
