Google

Well yes! Trivial as it may seem, sometimes a search on Google it can be an extremely effective solution. By searching for a name on Google (possibly in quotes, in order to obtain more precise results), you can easily end up in sites, blogs, forums and social networks where the person sought has entered their contact details, and between these contact details sometimes c 'is also the mobile number.

The same is also true in reverse: if you search for a mobile number on Google, you may find a site, forum or social network in which the latter is mentioned and in which the owner is revealed.



To proceed, then, go to the main page of the famous search engine, type the number of your interest in the appropriate search field and click on the button Search with Google. On the page that opens, locate the search results that may be available for the number you are looking for and click on them for further information.

If you want to deepen the subject and get further information on how to search on Google and how the Google search works, please consult the links I have just provided you.

sync.me

A solution that can certainly be useful for finding mobile numbers is sync.me, a web portal that is also available as an app for Android and iOS, thanks to which it is possible to find information about mobile and fixed numbers, as long as these are public.

To use this service, go to its home page, click on the icon pennant and select the international prefix you want to set for the search (eg prefix). Then, type the number of your interest in the appropriate text field and then press the button Search.



Now, on the page that opens, put the check mark on the wording I'm not a robot. If information about the number you are looking for is available, it will be shown in a summary card containing the name of the person to whom it is registered, its operator, its country of origin and so on.

Yellow Pages

Do you need the telephone number of a professional or a commercial activity? In this case there is no better solution than Yellow Pages, the online version of the paper book of the same name through which it is possible to find the numbers of public places, professionals and businesses throughout the city. For several years now - perhaps not everyone knows - the service has offered the possibility of finding not only landline numbers, but also mobile phone numbers.

To use it, all you have to do is connect to the home page of the service by clicking on the link I have provided you just now and type in the text field Company name, business or category the name of the professional, club or business whose phone number you want to find. Therefore specify the location to which you want to limit the search in the appropriate text field and give Submit to view the search results.

If you want to trace a professional's mobile number to his name, instead, select the tab telephone number, type the number of your interest in the text field Phone Number and click on the button search located on the right.


I remind you that PagineGialle is also available as a free app for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. Its operation does not differ much from the web service I just told you about.

Who's calling?


Have you received numerous calls from a mobile number that you think is unknown? Then I recommend you visit the site Who's calling?. As you have probably guessed, this is a collaborative site that uses user feedback to create a database in which the owners of countless telephone numbers, both landline and mobile, are present. It is completely free and requires neither registration nor sharing of your number. Unfortunately, however, it only allows searches in one direction: from the number to the holder.

To use the service, connect to its home page by clicking on the link I provided and type the number to identify in the search bar placed at the top and then click on the button Wheel. If the number entered is present in the site database, you will be shown a page with the name of the holder and the comments of the users who have allowed to identify the address.

I point out that Who is calling? it is associated with the “Should I Answer” app for Android that allows you to automatically identify and block calls from call centers, scammers and various annoyances. I told you about it in more detail in my tutorial on how to block a number on Android.

TrueCaller

TrueCaller is one of the best solutions to search for mobile numbers online. This is a Web application, also available for Android and iOS, which thanks to its internal database, which is composed of both the numbers of the "known annoyances" (eg. Call centers, scammers, telemarketers, etc.) and numbers of users who use it, allows you to easily identify numbers and holders. You can use it for free but, as just mentioned, you need to share your mobile number on the TrueCaller network. Understood?


To use the service, the first operation you need to perform is to connect to its main page by clicking on the link I have provided you a little while ago. Next, fill in the search field Search a phone number which is on top and come on Submit on the keyboard to start the search.


Now, decide whether to log in to the service with your account Google or with your account Microsoft by clicking on the relevant button and providing the requested data. If the search has produced results and the mobile number is in the database of the service, you will be able to view some information about the service.

Dive3000

Dive3000 it was one of the first collaborative telephone directories dedicated to cittàn users. It works with a fairly simple mechanism: you register by agreeing to share your mobile number with the other users of the service and thus you have access to the list with other people's numbers (it is an exchange similar to what happens with TrueCaller, which, however, is much more structured and contains more numbers).

Personally, given the price to pay in terms of privacy, I recommend that you contact Dive3000 only in case of real need, that is, if all the other services mentioned above did not allow you to find the number or name of your interest.

To use it, go to the home page of the service by clicking on the link I have provided you a little while ago and then click on the item SUBSCRIBE located at the top. Then fill out the form that is proposed to you by typing your email address, the username you want to use and the password you want to associate with your account and repeat the password chosen again in the relevant text field.

Then put the check mark on the box I'm not a robot and click sul pulsating Submit. Then access the e-mail box you have chosen to register for the service and click on the link contained in the message that was sent to you by Dive3000, in order to confirm your account.

After completing the registration, to search for the number of your interest, all you have to do is type it in the appropriate form and give Submit on the keyboard to start the search. If the search produces results, click on the one that interests you most to view the information associated with the numbering found.

Whooming

Have you received anonymous calls on your mobile? In this case I recommend you try Whooming, a very famous service that uses the call forwarding technique to reveal the numbers of those who hide behind the disguise of the caller ID (therefore of all those calls that come from a "private number" or an "unknown number").

The service is basic free but allows you to uncover the numbers of those calling on your mobile phone (or even on your home phone) in clear text only after having signed up for a paid subscription, which starts at 12,99 euros for 3 months. For more information on Whooming and how it works, read my tutorial on how to find out the private number.
