I get awfully curious when I receive a miscall on my cellphone from a phone number I do not recognize. Calling back is not always the wisest thing to do; what if it is somebody you do not really want to talk to?

“If only there were tools that helped me find who phone numbers belong to.” Thinking that, I searched the internet for such a tool. And I found five! Check them out below.


For Canadian phone numbers, one of the best lookup tools is Canpages. The site lets you lookup phone numbers, fax numbers, and even toll free numbers. It even acts as an online edition of the yellow pages and helps you find phone numbers of people and businesses.


Another resource for looking up Canadian phone numbers is 411ca. Offering nearly the same set of features as Canpages, 411ca will be equally helpful.


Free411 will quickly become a favorite for people looking up phone numbers in the US. In addition to letting you reverse-lookup publicly listed phone numbers, the site lets you use it as the yellow pages.
