February 15, 2009 --> Reverse Phone Searches to Chuck Telemarketers

In the never ending battle against egregious telemarketers, many folks are desperate for any good tool. As mentioned elsewhere on this site, the information displayed on caller ID and turning it into viable information can identify and put telemarketers in their place once and for all.

Known as a reverse phone search, this technology manages to break through the artificial barriers that have been holding folks back from clearly identifying the perpetrators of unsolicited phone calls. When you perform a reverse phone search, users tap into not only the vast amount of free information on the Internet but also private databases replete with landline and cell phone numbers. These reverse phone directories help to shine a bright light on the activities of telemarketers. Surprisingly, this service is very affordable, even to folks who use it multiple times per day.

What sort of information and results can you expect from a reverse phone search? Users can look forward to retrieve the name associated with the unknown phone number they lookup. One of these highly specialized searches can be run by plugging the 10-digit phone number in question into the search field of a reverse lookup directory. Within seconds, users will receive a phone report that may contain additional information like address, city, state, zip code and mobile carrier. With this information in hand, users can contact the individual or organization responsible for making the calls, directly, and asked to be removed from their marketing list.

The application of this new technology goes much farther than simply warding off telemarketers. You can perform these same searches on any number you have, including numbers from prank callers, obscene callers or any cell number that has been bothering you. Until now, cell phone owners were unable to screen calls coming from other cell phone numbers due to the non-existence of cell phone number directories. With reverse phone directories, however, cell phone owners can take more control over knowing who is accessing their phone number and maintain a higher level of phone privacy.
