How to Trace Cell Phone Numbers Like a Private Investigator

If you want to trace a cell phone number, you may think you’ll need to hire a private investigator to do the job for you. However, you can actually trace someone’s cell phone number in much the same way as a professional would. Rather than paying an extravagant amount of money on an investigator, you can do the job yourself. It may not even cost you anything! The first step is to use the search engines. Examples of search engines include Google, Yahoo and MSN. You can try one or try them all.

First, go to the search engine and enter the cell phone number. You may want to start off with the traditional 000-000-0000 format. If no results come up, try substituting the dashes for periods. Or, use spaces. Then, try taking out the spaces. People may enter their cell phone numbers in a variety of ways. Try all the search engines you can think of for the best results. If the person you are searching for has placed an ad on an online classifieds site, this is the way to find it. People often include their cell phone numbers in these ads. With a simple search, you can pull the information up in no time.

Then there are the paid methods of searching. You will find a remarkable number of sites online that can trace cell phone numbers for a modest fee. Sites like Intelius, Akiba,, Net Detective and more exist to help people track down information. They use the same databases as many private investigators use. Another alternative is to join professional search databases, which usually charge a monthly or annual fee for access. This is a good option if you’ll be doing lots of searches.

You should always consider your motives before tracing any information. If someone is harassing you from a cell phone number, you might want to take the number to the authorities. One sneaky option that may help you find out who is behind the calls is to go to a pay phone, call the number, and ask who is speaking. Sometimes, the person will actually tell you!
