Using Google Phonebook

February 18, 2010  //  Posted by: qwcdirect  //  Category: Web & Internet


Google’s phonebook can find US public business and residential numbers, and it can find them with less information than you need to look through the paper phonebook. Google’s phonebook can only find public phone numbers. It can’t find cell numbers. All you have to do is:

1. Enter the phone number in the search bar of Google’s home page, including the area code. Verify the number. Hit the “Search” button.

2. Wait for the search result. Look for the name and address that is associated to the phone number to be shown on the screen.

3. When Google finds the name and address matching a phone number, it will also give you a handy link to Google Maps to get driving directions to that address.

This might look like a tool designed for stalkers, but Google is just putting together information already available from local phone directories and Internet phonebook searches. If you don’t want Google to list your name and number, you can search for your own phone number and click on the “Request to have your name removed from this list” link in the search results.
