Reverse Phone Searches:
Why They're Not All Free
Paying for stuff is annoying. Trust us, we know.And when you miss a call or text from a number you don’t recognize, the last thing you want to do is pay to find out who it is. If you’re looking up a landline number, you’ll be able to get that report for free. But if you’re looking up a cell phone number, you’re going to have to pay a small cost.
Why, you ask? First of all, cell phone information is considered private and there’s no master directory for cell phone numbers. Each cell phone carrier has its own database of cell phone information that must be bought by reverse phone companies (like us). We take this information, compile it into one big directory, and offer it to you at a reduced cost. We’d love to make this free for you, but the truth of the matter is if we did, we’d probably go broke—and there are databases we need to purchase everyday to keep our site content fresh and up-to-date.
We know this can be a pain, which is why we shrink our margins and offer as much free content as possible to make things easier for you. Unlike most other reverse phone companies who will charge you for landline lookups, we offer them for free. If we don’t have to pay for the data, why should you?
The bottom line? We know there are tons of companies out there trying to scam you for money, but we’re not one of them. Some phone reports are going to cost a little, plain and simple. As more data becomes more widely available, we hope to offer more content for free. But for now, we do all we can to provide you with the best service at the lowest possible cost.
As always, we love to hear what you think, so if you have any questions feel free to shoot us a message!
