How to Find Someone’s Name by a Cell Phone Number

Have you been threatened on the phone lately? Or have you been suspecting something fishy? It is either your spouse is cheating or your kids are dealing with some unknown caller. You have two options to handling this kind of situation, either you keep silent while the fire burns on your roof or you stand up to find a solution to such situations.

You can find the name of the caller; all you need is the cell phone number. If it is a prank caller you intend to nail, I believe you can get the telephone number from the phone log on your phone. If it is that you are suspecting your spouse, you can sneak in and pick a couple of suspected numbers on his or her mobile phone. Once you have a cell phone number, it would not be hard to find a name. Here are a couple of options to finding a name by cell phone number.

You can call up the number and ask for who you are talking to. If the person is not smart enough, he or she may just let the cat out of the bag. Once you have the name, you have got all you need. But if you need more information, this could get harder as the person may start suspecting. This method therefore hardly yields results.

Another method is using search engines to pull up the information you need. Google and Yahoo are good search engines and you can do a search with the cell phone numbers there. Type the number in the format 999-9999-9999. If there is any information on that number, you will find it here. However, this hardly delivers too as so many people are not cautious of leaving their phone numbers and some other details on the Internet.

You can try public listings like, and to see if you could get information. You may be lucky but most people do not find stuff here.

My pick and your last option is doing a reverse phone lookup. This however requires that you pay a token which is no more than $20. With that, you have access to the database of a reverse phone number lookup website from where you can make a search. Every search done with a reverse phone look up returns a name, address, the city where the number is issued and the name of the phone number carrier. Other information can also be generated if you are interested.

From the look of things, it appears that the only reliable way of finding a name by cell phone number is through reverse phone lookup. It only takes a few minutes and there is a guarantee of getting the information you need.
