Whitepages is the largest online phone book for finding telephone numbers, street addresses and general contact information on people.
There are three different ways that you can find contact information for people on Whitepages:
Some directory listings on Whitepages are free, but some contact information and background reports have a fee.
In addition, you can edit your own personal contact information on the Whitepages.com phone book by signing up for a user account and claiming your own listing.
Online directory assistance sites like Whitepages are largely credited with putting an end to those large, printed phone books that people used to search through manually.
There are other good online phone book sites in addition to Whitepages.com, such as: 411.com, Anywho.com, Superpages.com, Yellowpages.com and Addresses.com.
The name and location search on Whitepages lets you find a street address and phone number for someone in any U.S. state by searching the person's name and location.
Search results also show directory assistance listings for family and neighbors, and a street map of the person's neighborhood.
If you have a ten-digit phone number for a person or business located in the United States, then you can do a free reverse phone number search on Whitepages.
However, the reverse phone lookup works best if the person or business is still using a landline phone number.
Unfortunately, there aren't many free listings on Whitepages that include cell phone number information for people.
You can search any street address in the United States with the reverse address lookup on Whitepages.com to find contact information on any people that live at the address as well as neighbors who live in the area.
The Whitepages address search also shows a Google street map for the neighborhood around the address that you search for and marks the phone book listings for people who live nearby.
Whitepages.com also has a Whitepages Premium ( fee-based ) search service that lets you lookup and find more current contact information on people including mobile phone numbers, street address, email addresses, family member names, criminal records and other public records.
Here is a state-by-state list of white pages telephone directories for all 50 states in the U.S., from Alabama to Wyoming, including the District of Columbia.
Choose the state for the person you are looking for to find the Whitepages phone book for that region of the United States.
FYI: phone number area codes do not cross state lines, with the exception of the toll free area codes. Each U.S. state has its own set of area codes for phone numbers.
