There are many different reasons you may want to investigate the origin of a given phone call. Thanks to the caller id function that exists on all cell phones and most land lines, you have access to the numbers of almost every caller who tries to reach you. However, if the number is not familiar, you will possibly want to know how to find out whose phone number it is. There are occasionally wrong numbers or calls that you completely disregard, but if you find a suspicious number on your child's phone or your spouse's, or it you are receiving a series of hang up calls from the same number again and again, you have access to a few tools you can use to identify the culprit.

Call The Number

Once upon a time, before the internet gained prevalence as the ultimate information highway, we knew exactly how to find out whose phone number it is that is coming up on our phone display. We would call that number and see who picks up. Of course, ideally, no one would answer and we could listen to the voice mail to find out who the caller is. If someone does answer, then we would have to be more creative. We could simply ask the person who they are and why they called; we could make up a story and hope to get their name; or we could just hang up and try again later.

If you choose to do things the old fashioned way and you do not want the caller to know you are trying to find out why they are, you will want to take strides to block your own number from their caller id system. From a land line, you would call * 67 before dialing. Your service provider can help you block your number from your cell phone. They may also have some advice about how to find out whose phone number it is and how to block it.

Search The Number

Of course, with the popularity of convenience of today's internet, one of the best ways to research anything is to "Google" it. You may use any number of search engines, including MSN, Yahoo, Bing, and so on. If you type the phone number, with hyphens, into the search field, the internet will produce the information you need as long as it is a listed number, the number of a business, or it has been posted online at some point. Learning how to find out whose phone number it is when it is a cell phone is a little bit more difficult.

Reverse Phone Look-Up

If you simply must know who has been calling you and the other options are not working, you might want to try a reverse phone look-up website. These services understand how to find out whose phone number it is and use different tools than you have at your disposal when searching the web. There is a fee attached to this service, however, so you may not want to use it if you are simply researching out of curiosity.
