Mysterious calls received from a number unrecognised or saved on your phone can be frustrating, stressful and sometimes harmful, even a text message saying “This is an urgent message about your bank account” can cause the day stress for anyone. If you are one of those people who would like to trace down a number, the information we will provide for the process is essential to read.

Use Benefits of a reverse phone number lookup system

As in many countries, we have reverse phone number lookup system in the UK, which can provide a lot of information about the caller and their identity. As this is one of the simplest ways to reach for the caller's identity, in some cases, it is not always possible to obtain the caller's identity information using this method. The main question we all look for is how we can find out who the caller's UK phone number belongs to, which network the call was received from and if it is possible to trace the number to the owner's name or business name. 

The reverse phone number lookup code is 1471, if you dial 1471 on your phone, the code performs a search for the last caller, also remember this process can bypass the blocked numbers saved on your phone app. Hence if the caller was one of the numbers you have blocked before by dialling the code 1471 you will get the information of the last caller that is not blocked on your phone.

Determine if the number is a landline or a mobile line.

We have to use all the information we can to identify a caller, in this process it is advisable to check if the number called you last was a landline or a mobile number from the UK. 

Mobile numbers start with 07, easy to determine if the caller is using a mobile number or if the number is starting with 0 and some other numbers like in London 0208 or 0207 the regional codes appear after the number (0) in the UK. The landline numbers can be searched in the directory if not located in the directory at least the search can be narrowed to a city or region in the UK. However, there is no way to search a directory for mobile numbers as they are not stored in a specific directory and will require the involvement of authorities for further searches to be conducted.

Search Online Using our Platform and other search engines.

Public companies and organisations usually have their contact information listed online through their web pages and Google listings; a search conducted using the internet may provide fruitful information but may not always provide enough information. In the Whocalled.co.uk platform, you can see the numbers displayed with information verified by other users received the same number calling them and easily identify if it is spam, scam, dangerous or safe. 

Whocalled.co.uk platform is completely free for the users, and you do not have to pay for any search or report of a number.
