Full Answer

Mobile phone numbers are not listed in directories in the same way as landline numbers, so checking social media websites where the person might have entered his personal details including the cell phone number can be a good first step.Type the individual's name in the search bar on the main social media page. This should let you find the person's profile, if available, which will list any phone numbers added by that person. Alternatively, use the individual's name to perform a reverse cell phone lookup on an appropriate website such as CellPhoneRegistry.com. Normally, a nominal fee is charged for this service.

Often, people update their alumnus information so that they can get in touch with old friends from college or school. Contacting the alumni department of the educational institution that the person attended can help find a current cell phone number, though for data privacy reasons, this may not be handed out unless you can provide a valid legal reason. Contacting mutual friends and using common interests to locate the mobile phone number is a more likely source, if possible.
