Reverse Phone SearchPhone Number
Public records companies have been selling access to cell phone information for years, but they have always charged for it. Phonebooks.com had attempted to try something new and, like everything else on this site, give the information away for free. We encouraged users that liked this service to help expand it by adding information. Of course, anyone who wished to be removed from this directory would be, and we would never charge them to do so (for instructions on how to do this, click here). Alas, we realized some visitors, al beit the minority, expressed concerns over the privacy implications of making this information available, so until we can find away to ease those concerns we have begun restricting the information we display connected with a wireless phone number.
Searching For Cell Phones
Cell phones are more a part of daily life in the US than anyone could have predicted. Since its bulky introduction by Martin Cooper of Motorola in 1973, we have seen the phone technology excel just as fast as the rate of subscribers. The census estimates cell phone penetration at nearly 91% of people in the US. Many residents are replacing their landline telephones with a cellular phone. Some businesses are now requiring that job applicants supply them with a cell phone number. Cell phones are indeed everywhere. However, this has created a problem. Finding a cellular number can be very different than locating a traditional land line number. That is why in August 2010, Phonebooks.com began offering information on cell phones.
There are two different ways of searching for information on mobile phones. The first, allows you to search for the owner/owners of information using just a phone number, this is known as a reverse search. The second allows you to search using an owner's name, this search is sometimes more difficult in terms of pinpointing of the person you are searching, as you must know the correct spelling of a person’s name and often the location in which they live.
Unlike with landline phones which are commonly made public, cell phone numbers are preferred by some to be listed as "private". We understand this. We also understand that without access to a mobile phonebook it can be potentially difficult to find old friends and loved ones. Until a solution can be found which is satisfactory to both trains of thought, Phonebooks.com will restrict the information displayed on numbers originally issued to a wireless provider.
Again, anyone who finds their number or other information on this site and prefers that it be kept private can request so and we will try to remove it as quickly as possible. Click here, for instructions on how to do this.
