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?




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:




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




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