Users of cellular telephones usually don't receive full caller identification information. Cellular users, some users of voice over Internet protocol (VOIP) and in some cases plain old telephone service (POTS) users will only receive the number of the telephone calling and not receive the name registered to that number. In cases such as this, referring to a reverse lookup service can help establish the name of the calling party.

  1. Internet-based Reverse Lookup

    • A number of web-based reverse lookup services are available. Doing a web search for the phrase "reverse lookup" will bring up a list of available services. Most are free, but some will do a deeper search for a fee. Reverse lookup services tend to be available only for the United States. If you need to do a reverse lookup for Canada, doing a search for "reverse lookup canada" will bring up a list of providers of reverse lookups for Canada. Limited international reverse lookup is sometimes available, but will often only bring up the name of the country and, in some cases, the name of the city where the call originated.

    iPhone Reverse Lookup Applications

    • There are some very good iPhone reverse lookup applications available. These apps will query external reverse lookup services to try and establish the name of the caller. In addition to dedicated apps, iPhone users can access standard browser-based reverse lookup services.

    Android-based Reverse Lookup Application

    • Google's Android, a Linux-based cell phone and portable device operating system, offers a number of apps for performing reverse lookups. Like iPhone apps, these applications will access an external database to try and find the name of the caller. Android-based phone users can also access web-based reverse lookup services.

    Any Cellular Phone with Inernet Access

    • If your cellular phone has Internet access, you can access various web-based reverse lookup services from your phone's browser.
