    Does anyone know of a good phone number extraction program? Preferably for mac. I've been looking for a little while and not quite sure if I have anything of any use. Something similar to eMail Extractor but for phone numbers?

    Hate to bump this, but have not been able to find anything of any value by googling. I'll take it for windows but would love to have a mac version. There are some online that I have found, but I really don't want to buy without any recommendations. I would think that everyone would be wanting to get on this because we're a mobile generation. If you have any suggestions on a mobile scraper software that would be appreciated as well. :)

    I found one that I like phone number extractor files v4.5 if anyone has something better please let me know. I'm only on the demo right now and it's not letting me export. :(

    Have you tried Easy Lead Finder? It's a software that extract Google Maps details based on the location and keyword you used...

    For North American numbers let's just say that it's fairly simple the "geeky" way. Under most unix systems (including Macs, I believe..) you'll have everything you need on your machine already. Under Windows just grab a copy of grep.exe and wget.exe then run from a command prompt:

    It's not the most efficient way to accomplish this task (single process...) but gets the shit done! ;-) (note that the dash after -O is NOT a typo...)

    Then, the nice thing about wget (that's why I picked it for this example over curl) is the recursive mode... Just add a -r to the arguments (-q -O -) and you'll have a poorman's crawler that ruthlessly gets each and every phone number in the following forms:

    Of course you can extract phone #'s from files you already have on your computer just by changing this part "wget -q -O - $url" with:

    Or you can buy our software. It extracts the cell phone from a landline and cell phone file then tells you what carrier the number is from.

    PM me if interested.
