For whatever reason you require this service – whether it be to touch base with a relative or old friend, skip trace a debtor, search for a missing person or just simply to identify a missed call on your phone – a reverse lookup is quite easy to do yourself using the sites and search engines available on the internet.
CAN I CONDUCT A REVERSE PHONE NUMBER LOOK UP FOR FREE?

Amongst the most popular free sites are;
However – a word of caution – there are numerous reverse lookup sites and search engines offering this service but may charge a nominal fee for the basic details and a further charge for more in depth information – so take the time to research and select your chosen site carefully!
CAN I ACCESS ANY TYPE OF TELEPHONE NUMBER USING A REVERSE LOOKUP SITE?
A reverse lookup search will identify a listed land line ,business line or toll free number. A cell phone number is more difficult to trace and will incur a cost, the same applies to an unlisted number.
HOW DO I USE A REVERSE NUMBER LOOKUP SITE?
Once you have selected the site or search engine of your choice, if you want to identify the person or the business registered to the telephone number that you have, simply enter the correct ten digit area code and number where requested and then view the results.
If you are trying to locate someone using reverse lookup make sure that you have their full name, any middle names, initials or any informal version of their name for example; Chuck for Charles or Jim for James etc. A date of birth is also very useful for verification purposes as there may be more than one person with the same name listed!
Please be aware that although a reverse phone number search is legal, you must comply with any privacy laws concerning personal information data.
