Phone Records Search

Sometimes you need to find phone records online. Maybe you’re trying to get in contact with an old friend. Or maybe you’re searching for that lost relative. It’s hard to know where to start if you want to look up a phone record online.

Fortunately, if you know the person’s name, there are many ways of finding phone records online. We’ll discuss the best ways of finding phone records, as well as how our people search can help you find other ways to get in contact with someone.


Can You Google Search for a Phone Number?

Sometimes, but the information will not be as accurate as using a public record database search tool.

In most instances phone records are not directly available through a Google search, so you may not find the answers you are looking for. It could be because the phone number is registered under someone else’s name or because the information is contained within a database that Google cannot access.

A helpful tip to make your search more successful is to make sure to tweak the search parameters. Use every combination of the person’s name with words such as “phone number” and “contact.” This may take some time, but after a few tries, you might get lucky and find their contact info.

Here are the reasons why this can be both difficult and incorrect to search for a phone number on Google:

  • There are more than 300 million cell phone numbers in the US and they change all the time
  • Over 100,000 cell phone numbers get reassigned daily. This makes it difficult for search engines to keep up with the owner of the cell phone number
  • You need more than the phone number in most cases, you have to know the name, city, state, or more to sort through all the results from a google search

Our reverse phone number search feature is updated based on public record-keeping rules and regulations, which makes the information attached to a phone number in our database extremely accurate. Our members only need the phone number to conduct a search, and the reverse phone lookup feature is unlimited.

Can I Search a Phone Number by Name?

Yes, searching by phone number is a key feature when using our public record search tool. You can search public records from any state in the US with a phone number or name.

Is There a Difference Between Searching for a Cell Phone Number vs. a Landline Phone Number?

No, when you search our public record database, you are getting the most accurate phone number available - even more accurate than Facebook or Google. Whether it is a landline or a cell phone does not make a difference.

The reason why this accuracy exists is that our search tool technology works around the clock to keep up to date with every public record-keeping office in the entire US.

Here are some examples of the types of records that are public:

  • Court Records
  • Police Records
  • Property Records
  • Marriage/Divorce Records
  • Driving Records

It is important to note that when anyone updates a record with their state or local record-keeping office, these forms always require an updated phone number. This is why our phone number lookup tool is used by millions monthly.

Keeping this technology up-to-date is one of the most important factors for all of our customers and why they choose SpyFly. You can see all SpyFly reviews here. Additionally, we provide the same accuracy for addresses, emails, or any other data that is considered a public record.
