With the rising popularity of cell phones, land lines are becoming less and less popular. Doing a reverse lookup used to be pretty straight forward, enter in the land line number and get someone’s name and address. However, cell phones are a bit different and a little harder to do reverse look ups on. There is a variety of iPhone applications that will do reverse lookups for cell phone numbers, so let’s take a look at some of the most popular ones.
WidgetBox offers a nice easy method to do a reverse cell phone search. While it’s not an app, the mobile version of this website works great on an iPhone. Simply load the website, type in the phone number, and pin point the location of where the cell phone is registered on Google Maps. For $14.95 you can find the address and name of the person who owns the cell phone. For $39.95 you can get unlimited lookups for an entire year.
Who Called Me is a great iPhone application for reverse lookups. What sets this app apart from the rest is it uses multiple sources to compile its information. It searches multiple databases as well as wikis to find the most information it can.
If you’re looking for the best deal out there, Mr. Number has an awesome application. Many services charges a lot of money to look up cell phone numbers, however, this application which costs $.99 allows you 20 look ups. For another $.99 you can purchase an additional 20 look ups. My Number will find information about land line numbers 90% of the time and 50% of the time for cell phones, so odds are it’ll find who you’re looking for. Either way, not bad for about five cents per use.
