Phone numbers by name are available on whitepages.com as a free service. Other websites such as anywho.com charge fees to provide phone numbers and additional information.
The information necessary to search phone numbers by name on whitepages.com includes the name of the individual or business and an address. As little as a last name only and a city, state or ZIP code yields results, but the site provides more accurate results when a full name and address are entered. All possible matching names with phone numbers, relatives and recent addresses are displayed. Websites that charge fees for phone number searches typically offer additional personal information such as criminal records and recent places of employment.
