The Reverse Phone Lookup Technique

By Martin Masterson

It’s happened to all of us. We’ve all received a prank phone call. Someone calls you but says nothing when you answer. Or when you pick up, you hear someone talking in a silly, unrealistic voice. Or they make impossible threats. The possible phone pranks are endless. But, we’ve all experienced at least one. To find out who’s been behind these calls, you can use the reverse phone lookup technique. All you’ll need to know is a three-button code.

A reverse phone lookup is a technique used to call back the person who last called you. This technique is especially used when the person blocks their phone number. One can block their phone number on a cell phone easily by choosing to hide their number in call settings. One can block their phone number on a landline phone by pressing “*67, ” or “star six seven.”

Use the code “star six nine” or “*69″ to call back the blocked number. This code undoes the blocking code the caller used. Press those buttons and call. Your phone will call the last person who called you automatically.

Ha! You’ll find out who’s been calling your phone and hanging up or making silly pranks. They’ll never see it coming. If you want to be spiteful, you can prank them back. But, the right thing to do is to politely ask the person to stop what they’re doing.

Reverse phone lookup is also used for more practical purposes. Some people don’t have caller ID on their house phones. So, it’s a simple way to call back your friend without looking for their number in the address book. It also shortens the time it takes to make phone calls for numbers that are complicated or long.

Whatever your reason is, it’s easy to use. Anyone can do it with just a click of three buttons.

Phone number mischief can now become non-existent by doing a reverse phone lookup. You can now achieve a reverse phone lookup in no time.
