A Bell Canada 411 search in Ontario provides the name and address of the person assigned to a particular phone number when doing a search by phone number, or may provide the phone number assigned when doing a search by name or address. Users can search personal and business listings.
The Bell Canada 411 search allows users to search for individuals by name, phone number or address. To start a search, users simply enter the phone number, if known, part or all of a last name, the first initial and last name, or the first name and last name. In order to decrease the chances of spelling mistakes, searches are most effective when only searching with the last name and a first initial. If a user fails to see results after using a compound name, the space between the names should be removed, or the user should add a hyphen to join them. If this still does not return any results, users should try searching with only the first four letters of the last name.
Users can also access the proximity search feature to find people listed around a reference point. Users simply enter the name, street, city and province, or a landmark or postal code, and click find.
