What is a phone number lookup service? Its pretty simple really. Instead of having a name that you would look up to try to get a phone number and address for, you only have the phone number and try to get the name and address to match the phone number. While it may seem kind of stupid, trying to look up a name from a phone number, but realistically it is actually smarter than you think, and this service can be invaluable.
First of all, why would you need a phone number lookup service? Well, there are a number of reasons. Let’s look at a couple of examples. We are pretty busy these days, working, dealing with out kids and families, and sometimes we don’t have time to write all the information down when it comes to contacting someone. Maybe you come home and find a message on your answering machine. The person or company usually just leaves their number, assuming you know who they are and what they’re about. You are busy too, so as frantically as you can you write this number down and may just toss it aside for later. It is often possible that you assume that since you have the number written down you’re going to remember who called, and end up deleting the message entirely. Hours or even a day or two later you are going through these notes, find the number, then can’t for the life of you remember who’s number it is.
Another situation, one of many, is that you’re hanging out at a bar or pub, and meet someone. You and they start up a conversation, find you have some commonalities, and at the end of the night they may give you their phone number on a napkin, written with a pen or pencil that’s not that great. You of course put it in your pocket, forget about it, and when you try to retrieve it, half the name is gone, or worse, you ran it through the washer without realizing it. They only thing left that is legible is the phone number. You want to call them, but since their name isn’t readable, you don’t want to guess it. They may think you didn’t really care to remember their name and get angry.
Now you sort of get the picture of why a phone number lookup service can be invaluable. You can find these services online, and it is pretty easy to use them. You have several different options. You can simply type in the phone number if you have an included area code. You can look up the number by state, or even city if it’s a local number. If you have an area code but don’t know which state it is then you can type in the area code and find out what state and town it is linked to. For an example if the area code is 208, then you are looking up a number for Idaho. Then there is the prefix. Prefixes are usually connected with the town the number is for. There are may be several prefixes attached to a town, especially if it’s a city with a large population. The last four digits are assigned to the individual person or company. A prefix that has a zero in is may also refer to a cell phone.
So are you trying to find the name of a person or company by looking up their phone number? As mentioned earlier the best way to do this is by going online. Instead of trying to search the net looking for a good phone number lookup website, just go to; http://phonesearchr.com/. You can lookup by number, using the whole number or any part of it. It is of course best is you have the full phone number, but if you don’t you can narrow down who the number is connected with through its parts.
