Reverse Lookup Apps for iPhone
One feature that has been lacking from cell phones is the ability to know who called you if the number is not in your contacts. Although caller ID is making its way to cell phone networks, not all networks are offering the service yet, and not for free. For iPhone users there are apps that perform reverse lookup for the numbers that called you. These apps are helpful to those who want to know whether or not they want to call that person back. Here are a few apps to consider downloading if you want to take out the anonymity of your callers.
This app was created by the folks at beenverified.com. It provides a reverse lookup of numbers that have called you. After you have performed the search, you can also view comments created by other users of the apps to find out exactly what the number wants. For instance if it is a telemarketer, another user may have left a comment about what they are trying to sell. The app covers 100% of landlines, 50% of cell phones, and 100% of telemarketers and 800 numbers. This app is also 100% free. Get App

This is an easy to use app that will identify and find information on telemarketers, Robo-dialers and other annoying phone calls.

This app is free for download, but each search costs $.99 if it provides a result. If the search has no result, you don’t pay. The app searches a database of over 450 million residential and business contacts and will show you the name, address, and sometimes even other household members. It also includes a free area codes search that allows you to type in the 3 digit area code or the city and state to determine where the call is coming from and maybe even figure out who it is.
