Many people have asked us, how you can discover the owner of a phone number. The answer is not simple and the privacy problem is further complicated.

We list a series of more or less effective systems to get to discover the owner of the number.

Reverse Phone Lookup
Often those anonymous calls us can hide your number so as to be undetectable. A service, which was not publicized, however, shows that the number of the caller. It ‘s a fairly expensive service, limited in time and for now only supplied by Vodafone.

It works for called hidden ID. This service, little known, is available for subscription customers and rechargeable. This service, called Override, allows for a short period (maximum 15 days) and only for those times, where the nuisance calls occur, the cancellation of the service restriction in the number caller. In practice, even if those who call us using the “hide number” we will get the number in the clear for the simple “ring”.


A technique to steal information about who’s calling is to use an answering machine. It ‘software to be installed on your phone and automatically answers calls and transmits to the caller rings you-tu-tu. In this way the caller thinks the phone is still ringing, while the convex is actually opened. So maybe you can steal voice or ambient sounds of the attacker.

An automated system that runs on Symbian phones and then the Nokia is the Aglaya Call Magic. The program responds to 0 rings on certain numbers customizable.
Social Engineering

Often you can retrieve information from the caller simply by adopting techniques of social engineering. For example, if we suspect that the caller is one of our friends, just pretend to change mobile number and give it only to “suspicion” molesters. If you still receive calls, then we have revealed the identities of anonymous rings.

Or more simply:

* References and ask who is
* Change mobile phone card
* Turn to private detective agencies

Police / police

The only solution to remove the root problem is to from the police. It ‘a very radical, but only recommended if your molesters will seriously threaten or otherwise in very dangerous situations. The only regret is that then they probably will not ever reveal the identity of the caller anyway.
