To look up phone numbers on Whitepages.com, select the Phone option at the homepage, enter the phone number in the field provided, and click the Search button. If the phone number is valid, details such as the carrier of the line and the state of the owner are displayed.
In addition to phone numbers, Whitepages offers lookup services based on names of people or businesses and a current city, state or ZIP code. The website also allows users to search addresses. Apart from Whitepages.com, phone lookup is also available at websites such as PeopleSmart.com, 411.com, SpyDialer.com and AnyWho.com. The lookup procedure is either similar or exactly the same for these websites.
At PeopleSmart, you must submit your name and email address to view the search results. An added feature of PeopleSmart is email lookup. Premium members of PeopleSmart have access to more information, such as court records, birth records, death records and work information. They also get search alerts wherever information concerning saved searches is updated.
As of May 2015, SpyDialer's phone lookup works with both cellphones and landlines. SpyDialer also offers photo lookup. AnyWho not only offers reverse phone number lookup but also a direct search through Yellow Pages and White Pages.
