Matching Phone Numbers with Addresses

If you want to know how you can match a phone number with a name and address chances are you want to find someone and the only info you have is their digits.

You may want to find that person for many reasons some of them being:

  • you suspect your partner of cheating and found the number in their phone.
  • someone is harassing you or your family by calling your phone
  • you're not sure about the unfamiliar numbers on your phone bill
  • you need to know who a particular phone is registered to because you suspect fraud.
  • you are trying to skip trace someone when all you have is their phone number.
  • and many other reasons.

If any of the above is the case then there are several ways you can go about finding that information.

There are upsides and downsides to matching a phone number with a name and address on the internet. On the upside it is particularly easy to find this kind of info within minutes and you could find additional information such as email addresses for the person and even directions to the location. It is possible to get that information for free.

On the downside, information like this isn't that readily available on the internet for free because of privacy issues so it may cost you a small fee. However, you may want the information so badly that a fee would not be that much of a problem with you but it is important to know where to get this information.

FREE Phone Number Search To Find Name and Address.

There are no databases that will give you this information for free but with a little brain power and a search engine like Google you could have the information you are looking for at no cost.

First, go to a search engine - Google is recommended - and type in the phone number and look at the results. The most relevant results will usually be returned first. Most of the times you may get a 'no results for this search' but if you are lucky there may be one or two pages.


The reason why this works is that people sometimes post their phone numbers and other information online and search engines would index the pages. Email forms are usually safe but posting on Myspace or Facebook for example would usually get your information out in the public.

Make sure to search several ways - ie with the area code or without, with dashes to break up each segment of the phone number or the whole number in one go.

If you know the area code you could just search the number and add the area to the search eg - 123 4567 + Miami. Be creative.


Best Resources For A Cell Phone Lookup

There are several sites online where you can get the information you are looking for at the cost of a small one time fee. You can do unlimited searches and match a phone number to a name and address in minutes.

These services are used by private investigators and everyday people who are looking for this type of info. Not all the services work well so beware.

From experience I only recommend one service - - to do your searches for the following reasons:

  • Has the largest database of all the phone record sites.
  • you can find 800, 900 and 888 numbers
  • Do unlimited searches for a small, affordable one time fee.
  • find records using name, email, address or phone number
  • reliable and trustworthy.
