    Which cell phone company???

    Hey guys and gals,

    I did a search and couldn't find the site I am looking for. I asked a few months back in some tech thread in the lounge, if it was possible to find out which cell phone company was associated with a particular phone number and someone here posted a link to a website which indicated just that.

    Anyone know which site I am talking about?

    Thx and g-night!

    www.411.ca

    Go to "reverse look-up", enter phone number and bingo. Only limitations is it won't know if the phone number was switched-over, it will show the original owning company.

    Yup. http://www.whitepages.com/10592/reverse-lookup works about 1,654 times better than the crap they put up at Canada411.ca

    Sad, isn't it, that Americans (whitepages.com is a U.S.-owned and operated site) have better data than what our ever-loving phone companies shovel into our mouths and offer up as a "service"? I guess they mean service in the same sense as an escort does. You get fucked.

    The answer is "sometimes". If it isn't a pay-as-you go, and depending upon the cellphone company, yes.

    there is a lot of information 'out there'.

    Last week for instance, I found Sexy Tamara's full name, street address and home telephone number without too much trouble. No, I'm not going to say how. I wrote to pretty much every address she has and let her know.

    Didn't get so much as an acknowledgement of the email. I guess she doesn't care or didn't get it.

    So you can find info that easily?

    This is very disturbing.
    Could be for some, yes. Privacy problems abound. Take the time to figure out, step by step how to disassociate yourself with every piece of electronic residue you have out there if at all possible, if you must.

    MERB & your bank know how you pay. Send postal money orders instead of bank transfer or credit card payments

    Get a pay-as-you-go cellphone and give a fake name

    Your ISP knows when you are online and where you go. Surf from an Internet café or on a wireless connection.

    Use Gmail. They don't publish the IP address you send mail from

    Use a private domain name through Godaddy or even better 1and1.com who also offer the best, and cheapest domain and website hosting with a free domain and you can keep it private.

    most of this at least keeps you safe from amateurs poking around.

    En tout cas ça serait une belle façon de faire chanter une fille pour qu'elle arrête le métier... tu lui fais des menace directement chez elle...

    Aussi tu pourrais menacer de révèler sa véritable identité... Tout est possible... Super.

    ps si seulement ses informations tombais entre les mains d'une personne mal intentionné on s'entend c'est pas tout le monde qui pense à faire ça.

    ps2 j'ai quand même appeller ma compagnie de cell... on me dit que les lois qui régissent le canada ne sont pas les même que les états-unis, si je veux, je peux changer de numéro de téléphone, sinon de contacter la police et de voir avec eux ce qui peut être fait si jamais quelqu'une essaie de nous faire du mal. ... mais ça donne la base ou mon cell est hébergé pas chez moi... ouf.

    I used it to send a text message (from my computer) to a lady I needed to contact. And the link provided did not give me her name or address, just the phone company which is what I needed.

    Actually I have never seen the name of anyone appear using that site, just the phone company.
