    Does anybody know of a free source where I could track down the name of a cell phone number? The main company targeting this niche is Intellius, but they charge $5 a record. If somebody knows of cheaper alternatives please let me know here or by PM. Thanks.

    There's no way free way to do it; I tried for a long time. Well, there may be, but I didn't find it after a week of searching around.

    I ended up trying Intellius, and they are a SCAM. They charged me something like $39.99, whereas they said they would charge like $2.99. And I was really careful to read the fine print before going through with it. Took a while to get a refund, but they finally gave in. And I wouldn't have minded even paying that much, had they given me info I wanted. They were unable to find the cell phone owners name. Kind of defeats the purpose of the service..

    Were you able to find a company that does provide the information?

    Unfortunately not. There may be a company out there that can, but I'm sure it'd be expensive.

    Intellius works. I've used them at least 20 times and had no problems other than not finding the owners name a few times. If they didn't find the users name I would just call support and they always gave me a refund with in a few days.

    Yeah, I used trapcall to unblock blocked calls. Worked great.
