I'd like to know if anybody knows of any free online reverse cellphone
# lookup sites which will tell you the company who owns the phone
number.

Given that number portability is now widely used, I understand it may
not be too reliable.

This should give you the name of the telco who has the number:

You can't get the subscriber name for a cellphone number (yet).

Interesting. It shows my 919 607 number as owned by GTE mobile net and when I click on that link it goes to Verizon web page. Bu my
carrier is Cingular.

Not all numbers in the 919-607-xxxx range are owned by GTE, some are
owned by other carriers, including Cingular. You'll need to provide at
least one more digit 1xxx or 2xxx, etc to get the precision you're
expecting.

And now with number porting it could belong to anyone. ATT has a look
up form which I posted a minute ago to this thread, the data is
presumably from the DBs maintained for that purpose. it shows my number
as belonging to t-mobile, I ported from ATT a couple months ago.

Yes, the ATTWS site is defenitely seemingly more precise than the
other databases. Thanks for the post Steve.

Unless the number was ported. Try 760-217. Shows as Verizon Wireless, but I
ported my Verizon phone to Sprint six months ago and still have my 760-217-xxxx
phone number.

Thanks to overlays there is no need to change area codes even when
numbers are scarce.
