How to Quickly Match a Phone Number to a Person

Trying to match a phone number to a person can be somewhat difficult if you don’t know what to do. There are a number of ways that you can connect someone to their phone number without much effort, especially in the age of the internet.


1. Start out by using an internet search engine such as Google and doing a search for the phone number in quotation marks (“555-555-5555”) with the area code included. Internet search engines log tremendous amounts of data and if someone has listed their phone number on a website or posted it anywhere else, there’s a good chance it may come up.

2. Visit a “white pages” phone book site and try performing a reverse lookup. Some websites charge for detailed information, but many provide basic information for free.

3. Call 411 from your phone and speak to a directory assistance operator. These operators often have access to special phone number information, and can assist you in matching a phone number to a specific person. You may have to pay for the directory assistance call, but it’s well worth it if you can match it to a real person.

4. Contact the police and see if they can help you. They have access to phone number data that the general public does not. They may not help you if it isn’t a criminal matter, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.


If you are being constantly harassed by an unknown phone number, don’t hesitate to contact the police and file a report. No one should endure constant harassment, and speaking to the police can often improve that situation.
