Have you noticed strange cell phone numbers on your phone bill? Most telephone bills only list numbers that were called, and not the names or addresses. When you see a strange number once, you probably forget all about it, but if you see the number many times you might start to wonder. The first thing you want to do is recognize who uses the phone during the times that the calls appear on the bill. Perhaps your husband is in his home office doing business with the phone, or your child is using the telephone to call his or her friends.

Think about who is normally using the phone when the calls appear. This may help you figure out who the number belongs to. Also, you may want to note the length of the call with your caller ID if possible. If the strange number is showing up on a cell phone bill, you should be able to view the length of the phone call. This can tell you several things. If there are multiple entries where the call lasted less than 10 seconds, it could be a telemarketer or wrong number. However, if the conversations seemed to last for a while, it is obviously someone that knows someone in your family.

If there is a number on your telephone bill or cell phone bill, there is something you can do to find out exactly who owns the cell phone. There are some great new websites that allow you to type in a person's cell phone number and it will look up their name, address, and other information about them as well. This will help you find out exactly who is calling your home, and why.

There are many reasons to check the number. You might be thinking, “Well, it's no big deal. The call wasn't for me and why should I care who it was?” What if the call was for your child? Do you make sure that your child speaks only with friends his or her age? If your child uses the internet, there is the possibility of different shady people trying to contact them for one reason or another. As a parent, your job is to know exactly who is calling your child and why.

All you have to do is type the number in on one of these websites, and within seconds you will have the full name, address and other information on the caller. This will help you to make sure that the person who is calling doesn't have bad intentions, or isn't trying to trick you in some way. A simple check will stop this from happening. You may also wonder whether your husband or wife is being unfaithful. This is one of the best ways to find out. If they have been calling your number, you can immediately find out what his or her name is and where they live. This is some powerful stuff to confront your spouse with. If there is a strange number on your cell phone bill, and you want to know why, check it out.
