How-To identify Mobile carrier from Cell Number

Recommended Posts

Question from Reader :: Ask MrGroove Email Form

 

Hello Mr Groove,

Do you know a way (website) to identify the service provider (carrier) of a cell phone number?

Thanks

Doug

 

Hi Doug,

 

I assume you read my Article Quickly Send Text Messages for Free Using E-Mail

 

You ask a really good question which I don't have a great answer for.... I did a little GOOGLE work and found this site:

 

http://www.fonefinder.net/

 

The problem is now that people can move their phones to any carrier, that site is only good up until the person moves the phone to a new carrier. For example, I tested it on my phone and it is showing my original carrier I signed up the phone with, not AT&T whom I'm currently using (iPhone.....)

 

Hope this helps!

Yeah... I think it's close to impossible to figure out the carrier now that ppl are able to move their #'s at will.

 

Here's a few more resources you can use tho to find the carrier for mobile / cellular phones:

 

http://www.reversephonedetective.com/

 

http://www.tracenumber.com/ - Gives you location and carrier and type of phone (land line or cellular/mobile)

 

http://il-phone.info/

 

Basically, all I did was put the phone number into GOOGLE and about a dozen sites came up with the info.
