Girl With a CellphoneWhen we meet a nice girl at a pub or in a club, we usually ask for her cell phone number so that we can call her the very next day and make an appointment or just text her. It’s needless to say that on many occasions the girl which we ask will give as a wrong number so to make sure she will never see or hear from us. However, it can often be difficult to determine whether the girl gave us her actual number or some fake one. Obviously it would be very stupid to ask her directly whether the number is her or not. And even if we call it the next day and nobody responds we still can’t be sure if it’s a good number or not.

I have found a very simple method which helps me in such situations. When I get back home after a party where got a girl’s cell phone number, I just look it up in a cell phone directory and check whether it belongs to the girl I met. Of course I assume that you ask her not only about her cell phone but about name as well, since it would be impossible to verify if it’s her number without knowing her name. On the other hand, when you type her phone number and find out that it belongs to some guy, you can be sure that she gave you a wrong cell number.

The single lookup is quite expensive, especially if you plan to check a few numbers a month. I personally pay for a monthly subscription which lets me execute as many searches as I want for a flat fee. Everything depends on your needs and you should always calculate which options suits you best. If you don’t get new phone numbers very often then maybe a single lookup will be ok for you, but if have more number, then you seriously ought to consider a subscription. If you worry that it’s too expensive to just verify if the girl gave the right number, you can always ask your friends and collect money for a subscription which you will share. If you manage to find 4 friends who are interested in such verification, you will divide the costs by four which will significantly lower them.

Remember to always look for a service which offers cell phone numbers and not only residential records, since such service will be useless in this case. And what is more important you can reverse land lines for free, so there is no point in paying for it.

If I had to count all my friends who don’t possess at least one cell phone, I think I would have to say there is no such person. And this is not only about my friends but about all people living in these times, it’s just impossible to conduct normal life without a cell. Just imagine that you have arranged a meeting with somebody but you have forgotten where exactly were you supposed to meet. How would you ask the other person about the place of your meeting? People who lived twenty years ago surely used to cope with such situation without using phones but for modern people it’s almost unimaginable.

Sometime’s it can happen that we need to call a friend whose phone number is not saved in our cell’s memory. Majority of people think that it’s quite difficult to obtain somebody’s cell phone number by his name. They think that it’s only possible for residential phone numbers, since they are aggregated into White Pages and published for example in the Internet. These people are partly right, since it’s a little bit easier to reverse a land line than a cell phone number. Cell number cannot be collected in any publicly available database without consent of the holder.

However, there are companies which specialise in gathering cell phone numbers data. Such companies buy information from big online stores as well as from other vendors who operate big customers’ databases. Then the information is processed and assembled into cell phone directories. Such directories can be searched by a the holder’s name as well as phone number. Thanks to this, you will be able to execute a cell phone search and find your mate’s number in just a few minutes. If you don’t find the record in the first website which you try, you shouldn’t give up and check other provider, because he may have to information which you need.

And you shouldn’t be worried that your friend will learn that you have been searching for his phone number in such a directory. All the searches are confidential and nobody will be able to find out about your investigation as long as everything what you do is legal and the law enforcement is not involved. It’s needless to say that in such case, they will request the information about any illegal action that you have performed and you have to suffer. On the other hand, while performing a reverse phone lookup is 100% legal it’s hard to imagine a situation when you break the law by using the information retrieved by such a lookup.
