Wireless 411 Directory
A few years back, there was some talk about putting together a reverse cell phone directory. All of the different cell phone
service providers would contribute their numbers, and the directory would be made available. However, the concern about
telemarketers and privacy caused the idea to be abandoned (for now).
That doesn't mean that putting together a reverse cell phone directory is impossible. The truth is it can be done- and has been
done-- but it requires plenty of effort, since the information has to be compiled manually from millions of different records.

providers who charge simply don't have access to a complete database of information.
Why Isn't There A FREE Reverse Cell Phone Lookup or Directory?
Once people realize there's no such thing as a free reverse cell phone directory, the big question is - why not - AND, What's the next best option? After all,
there are plenty of free reverse lookup sites for land line numbers. What's the difference?
Well, the difference is the classification of the information. Your home telephone number is considered public domain
information and has been for decades. That's why no one has to ask your permission to publish your number in the telephone book.
In fact, sometimes you have to pay a fee to keep your name OUT of those phone books (i.e., to get it unlisted or non-published).
Cell phone numbers are generally more private, since you're charged for every call you receive, including telemarketers you don't
want to talk to (although it's illegal for them to call your cell phone without permission!). That's why cell phone numbers are
typically harder to track down.
