Locating A Person By Their Cell Phone Number - Is It Possible?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Locating a person by their cell phone number was once almost impossible but the internet has transformed the way we search for most things these days and that includes the way we try to trace people. What I aim to cover here is whether you can successfully find anyone who owns a cell phone and the best ways to search.

So is locating a person by their cell phone number even possible? The answer to this question is yes. You can locate someone when all you have is their phone number. However, some methods are more difficult and more time consuming than others and some methods are free and some will cost you money.

1. Google Searching

The first method I want to cover is the Google search. This method is free but is very time consuming. This method also only has a small chance of working. It will only work if the person you're looking for has an online presence and have their phone number posted on some sort of social network like Facebook, My Space, Twitter etc.

Locating a person by their cell phone number using this method is not advisable if you need results fast but definitely worth a shot if your on a tight budget and have time to kill. All you simply do is open up Google in your browser and type in the persons phone number into the search bar. You then click search and wait for the search results to populate.

It's very doubtful that the person you're looking for will appear on the first page of the results. You may be required to scroll through hundreds of pages to locate the individual in question. Even by going through this time consuming process, you're not guaranteed to find who your looking for. Unfortunately, if the person has no online presence or no phone number posted online then Google will have nothing in its data banks to reveal.

This being said, you could strike it lucky and locating a person by their cell phone number using this method just might work. So, as I said before, if you're on a tight budget and you have time to spare then this option is definitely worth a try.

2. White Pages

White Pages is not really an option for you when it comes to locating a person by their cell phone number. White Pages is great for finding landline phone numbers but cell phone numbers are classed as unlisted. They are considered to be private so as such, you will not find cell phone numbers listed in White Pages.

3. Reverse Phone Search

The most popular way of locating a person by their cell phone number is to carry out a reverse phone search. There are plenty of reverse phone search companies available online so when you have found one that is affordable you can simply enter in the phone number of the person your looking for into the search bar and click search.

Generally, you will get immediate results from such a search as these online services buy the cell phone information and manage it all in their database. This then makes it accessable to the general public but this is a service that you will have to pay for.

The reason for this service not being free is due to the online reverse phone search companies having to pay for the information in the first place. Not to mention that they have to maintain the database which contains thousands of numbers.

My Recommendation!!!

For me, locating a person by their cell phone number was very easy indeed. I tried the Google search intitially and spent a good hour and a half searching but found nothing at all. I tried the White Pages too but quickly learned that this contains landline numbers only. It was only when I subscibed to an online reverse phone search service that I found the person I was looking for.

The service was very cheap and also allowed me to carry out unlimited free searches for a year once I was subscribed. You can use my chosen service or you can find one of your own but I can highly recommend this service because it offered a user friendly interface that was as easy as Google to use, I got immediate results and it was very cheap. Not to mention a whole host of other benefits but you can find out about all those for yourself. Locating a person by their cell phone number just couldn't be any easier!
