    Finding a person's cell phone number isn't all that difficult these days. One need only to run a search on the name in the many social networking sites (such as FaceBook) or a Google search can be done on the person's name. Of course, this does produce a lot of extraneous results and can be quite mind-numbing to sift through.

    But, what if all you have is a phone number and you want to know the name it is associated with?

    Reverse phone listings were created for just such an occasion. These are directories of mobile phone numbers that are search-able by cell phone number and provides identifying information of the phone owner. Every directory offers a different mix of search results, but almost all of them will provide to the researcher the name, address, connection status, and carrier information of the cellular phone's owner.

    Many have found a wide variety of uses for these reverse phone search engines. Some have traced their own mobile phone numbers to turn up lost bills. Of course, many have used these services to track down a lost family member or friend.

    "Land line" telephone directories do not list cell phone numbers. Thus, for many years people had no way to find out a person's cell phone number. It's because of this that these cell phone directories were created. Unfortunately, maintenance and creation of these listings are very costly, so unlike the land line directories, researchers must pay a fee to search the cell phone databases. While there are free cell phone directories available, these databases are very outdated and will not provide accurate information on people who change carriers or move.

    The largest growing user of these cell phone databases are businesses who wish to run a "trace report." Many of these look-up services offer a report that gives details about the cell phone's owner. These details are used by businesses to run background checks on prospective employees and prospective clients. Debt collectors are using these trace reports to reveal the debtor's name, address, bankruptcies, marital status, employment background, criminal history, and even credit statistics.

    Private individuals use these directories often too. Mostly people use these reverse look up services to find out who a "missed call" was or to identify an unfamiliar number on a phone bill. Individuals are also using these services to determine the identity of a prank caller or a text-message-bully. Parents are even using these directories to ascertain information about the people their teenagers are "hanging out" with.

    Having an "unlisted" cell phone number is an option for mobile phone owners (just like it is an option for land-line owners). Cell phone carriers allow you to pay to have your phone number "blocked." Blocked cell phone numbers do not appear in these directories. Just like anything else, there is a price for privacy.
