Does such a thing as a free reverse cell phone lookup exist? That is a question I used to ask myself until I accidentally found the answer. Yes, you can look up a number free of charge! That question is almost as significant as, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” I found the answer to that one, too. The chicken came first. Look in the dictionary. Yes, you can do a reverse cell phone lookup absolutely free.
Have you ever received a phone call on your cellphone displaying an unfamiliar number? If the number is one you know, you generally answer the call. But if the number is not, you may want to know who is calling before you answer.
I have discovered that you can do a reverse cell phone lookup absolutely free. Like you, I have read articles that stated a free cell phone search is possible, and the authors indicated that a free reverse lookup is an invaluable service. By the time you finish reading the entire article you learn you can do a reverse lookup for one low price. It is definitely not free. True, a number of websites are listed where you find out free that information is available and sometimes even the city where the caller resides. But to get the name of the caller, you have to pay a one-time fee that is generally $14.95 or purchase a membership where you can look up unlimited numbers for one year.for $39.95. Not exactly free, right?
Are you wondering why you can’t just get the cell phone number free? Simple. Landline phone numbers are in the public domain so you can find them on almost any free online search website. But cellular numbers are private. They are owned by telephone carriers and telecommunication companies. Information for these numbers is collected manually from many sources so reverse phone lookup companies charge a fee.
But you can do a free reverse cellphone lookup if you know how. Here’s how:
1 – Caller ID. You probably have Caller ID on your landline. You can also add it to your cell. It gives you the name of missed callers and phone numbers.
2 – Star 69. Press * (star), then 6, then 9. Your phone will automatically call back your last caller.
3 – Search Engines. Google.com; YahooSearch.com; Bing.com, dogpile.com, Jux2.com.
Search engines! That is how I accidentally found out how to do a reverse cell phone lookup absolutely free. No charge. Nada. I entered my cell phone number in one of the search engines and found out all about me -at no charge. How could this be? I never published my cell phone number on any site. Then I realized that when I sent out publicity releases for my latest book about job search, I included my cell phone number as a contact. That is how you can learn free information about many cell phone numbers. Look up the number on all the search engines.
Keep in mind this strategy will only work if the number has been published at some time – on a website, in an online resume, in a post or article, in a publicity release, or on a social networking site like Facebook or Myspace. I’m often surprised that so many people post their cell phone numbers online
For best results, be sure to enter the phone number in two different ways: 555-111-5555 or without hyphens or spaces: 5551115555. Good luck.
