The “Reverse Phone Lookup” app by WhitePages.com is a clean and easy to use app by WhitePages.com, which also publishes app such as “411” navigation and “WhitePages” reference apps. The app charges money for “premium searches” and starts at $1.99 per match. Keep in mind: The app does not guarantee that it will come back with a name, it states in the description: “And we don’t charge you if our search doesn’t come up with a name, only if we give you results”. There is also a option to have a “premium search package” in the settings, but we couldn’t figure out how much it cost after looking through the app for a while. The app has a nice feature where it saves your searches (see photo gallery below) and shows you the numbers and results you have already searched for.
While it is free, there are purchases that can be made inside the app that give you more information about the caller. We tested it with several numbers and most of them gave the location the phone number is registered to with a good degree of accuracy, but no name associated with the number. We tried to pay for a premium search, but on most of the numbers (cell) it came back with a “Sorry, we could not find a name with a Premium Search”. Bummer. Out of five numbers we tried, one number came back with the name of the caller. We were charged $1.99 for the search.
It’s clean, it’s fast, it only charges you if it works. And it’s worth trying out if you want to shell out the $1.99 for a premium search. Useful for general information about a caller, their name, and where they are from. Would recommend for: People on a budget.
