You can search for just about any cellphone number on the Internet using a variety of services. Most numbers can be searched successfully using a free Internet-based service such as whitepages.com or Freephonetracer.com. If you are unable to search for a number using a free site, you can submit it to a website that charge a moderate fee for the service. Telephone numbers from a well-known mobile provider like Verizon Wireless are generally easier to search for than lesser-known brands.
Searching on Verizon's Website
Open a Web browser and navigate to the Verizon Reverse Lookup Web page (see Resources).
Type the cellphone number you want to search for in the open field labeled "Reverse Number Lookup."
Click the button marked with a picture of an arrow. A new page will open up with your search information. The page will display basic geographical information. If you need more in-depth information, you will need to search an additional website.
For In-Depth Results
Open a Web browser and navigate to freerevcell.com.
Type the Verizon cellphone number you want to search for into the field marked "US Cell Phone Number Carrier Info --- Area Code and Phone Number."
Click the "Search for Carrier" button. A new page will open up with all of the information related to that number, including the owner's information and the cellphone carrier.
- If you are searching an unlisted Verizon number you will need to use a fee-based service such as Intelius.com, Spokeo.com, Peoplefinder.com or USSearch.com.
