Phone lookup

Post by Brah » Mon, 11 Aug 2014 9:12 am

I often don't pick up the phone for numbers I don't recognize.

Sometimes I have luck in finding out about who is calling, but not always.

Any suggestions for this, for numbers in Singapore?

I just usually Google the number; if the number's on the net, it will show up.

If you have an Android device and you're on 4.4 and above, the phone will automatically do a search for caller ID. The problem is with mobile and household numbers.

years ago Singtel directory allowed reverse search, key in a landline and find out which company / individual it is registered to
