    So today I got a weird text for a number in my area that I do not know. I would like to see who it is. I have been looking at a ton of sites for a free phone number look up and all they say is the location. I just want the name but on all of these sites you must pay. Does anyone know of a good free phone number look up or have a membership on one of these sites that give you unlimited look ups so you can look it up for me?
    Thank you.

    Basically the site somehow silently calls the person, and goes directly to voicemail or something, then it gets the info about who owns it from there. Idk. You also have the option to hear the person's voucemail to see for yourself who it is, and the best part is that it doesn't ring through on their end. I've tested it on myself before using to identify mystery calls.

    I tried this on my number, it does get the voicemail message. Mine is generic though. It must work by going through the carriers back-door numbers for the voice mail system. But it could not tell me who the owner of the phone was, said unavailable.

    Plus you can opt-out any phone number. So I opted out a few random phone numbers just to see how it works.

    There's an app called CallBot that was developed by a guy on the iPhone subreddit. You get some lookups for free, but you can buy packs as well. If the phone number doesn't return a match or you get a generic "mobile phone" then it doesn't count as a lookup. It's a pretty handy app, I think.

    Just block the number and move on. Nothing you can do as the "do not call" list is a joke!
