How to Find the Cell Provider for a Mobile Number By Blaze Johnson, eHow Contributor

Found This Helpful

Finding a cell phone provider for a mobile phone number can be an important part of tracking down unknown callers. Doing a reverse phone number look-up can reveal details of a person's mobile carrier as well as the area the call came from. Free Internet services are available for use when doing reverse look-ups with regard to cell phone numbers; however, free Internet reverse look-up services may not always prove successful.

Things You'll Need
  • Internet access

Instructions

  • 1. Navigate to a free reverse phone number look-up website (see Resources). Cell phone users have the ability to transfer, or port, older landline phone numbers or numbers utilized from a previous mobile carrier for use with a new carrier; prank callers who utilize previously used phone numbers ported over to their new cell phone carrier will provide inaccurate results when using a free reverse look-up search service.

  • 2. Utilize paid reverse look-up services if you believe the prank caller may be using a phone number that has been ported over to a new carrier. Paid reverse look-up services online will be able to search private databases in order to provide results that are more accurate when it comes to finding the mobile carrier used by the prank caller (see Resources).

  • 3. Call your local law enforcement in order to file a police report. Your particular phone company may be able to set up a "Phone Trap" that will identify the prank caller. Your phone company will work closely with your local law enforcement in order to catch the offending caller.
