You will find many internet sites that say you can trace cell phone numbers for free on their site. The question is are these sites really free or is it just an advertising trick to get you to visit their site? I will go over what they are really offering for free, so you will see that it is just a way to get you on their site.
Let me explain how they are just using a play on words to get you to their site. The free trace they are really offering is only on publicly listed numbers. The publicly listed numbers are landlines such as home phone numbers or business numbers. They can offer this information for free because cell phone number database free technically it is free to everyone. There is nothing private about the information you find when you do a reverse phone number lookup search for one of these numbers. What they don’t tell you until you visit their site is that you cannot trace a cell phone number for free because of the privacy laws in place protecting mobile phone users. This information is kept by the providers and cannot be made public for free.
Once you try to trace cell phone numbers on their site, they will then tell you this and say there will be a fee for this information. Now in most cases by the time you get to this part of their site you have already had to enter in all of your personal information. In my opinion, this is not safe because they could possibly sell all of your information to whoever wants it. Let’s say you went to their site because you had one unidentified caller that keeps calling you, and you wanted to find out who it was so you could make them stop. Well, now they have all your personal information and will possibly sell it. Guess what? You may start getting more and more unidentified phone calls to your cell phone. Then you will have to do more traces. This is not something you want to do, trust me.
Avoid all the long term aggravation and go with a reputable reverse cell phone number directory database to do any cell phone number traces. These companies will not ask you for any of your personal information. They will also allow you to do a search for free in their database to see if they have the number you are looking for. This way you are not paying for something they don’t have because none of these directories have 100% of all mobile numbers in their databases. If they say they do, avoid them at all cost.
