Want to find out who called you without paying? It can be done in a phone call.

You can dial 1-800-FREE-411 (or 1-800-373-3411). It’s a sponsored phone call service, so you will have to listen to a 10-second ad before you reach an agent. You can only look up business phone numbers and landline numbers this way.

This is probably the only way to get the name of a phone number’s owner legally. However, if you need more information about the person. You can spend just $1 for 7-day searches to get the person’s names, contact details, social profiles, etc., if that data is available.

How to try to find out who called me without paying too much?

Anyone can access public information in the past, and it was never affordable and easy. But with public information online, it’s much more convenient to look up a phone number in a few clicks.
