A California reverse phone number lookup could give you a good amount of information when you need to know who owns a particular phone number. For example, you might want to use a phone number search tool if an unknown number repeatedly calls you and you think it is coming from a California area code or you have other reason to suspect the number comes from California. You may also want to use this tool if you are getting regular calls from a telemarketer or a possible scam artist that appears to come from the state. You may even desire to use a reverse phone number lookup to confirm if a California phone number belongs to the same owner it used to, particularly if you suspect it may be an old friend or estranged family member. Regardless of the reason, this tool can help you find the information you need.
What Are Common California Phone Number Area Codes?
If you suspect a phone number calling you is from California, one way to tell is to look at the area code. California is a huge state, and as such, it has many area codes, but here are some of the common ones from larger metro areas:
- Common San Francisco area codes: 415 and 628
- Common Los Angeles area codes: 213 and 323
- Common San Diego area codes: 619 and 858
- Other common California area codes: 209, 310, 559, 714, 925 and 831
It should be noted that just because a phone number has a California area code does not mean that a call from this number is coming from California. A person could have moved or be traveling and still be using a California phone number. However, the area code of a phone number is a good place to start when you want to look into a number.
How Can I Lookup Someone's California Phone Number?
To look up someone's phone number in California, you can use a reverse phone number lookup service. In general, this service works like the reverse of a phone book. Instead of looking by name in the white or yellow pages of a phone book to find someone's phone number, you will use someone's phone number to find their name or business. For people who do not have caller ID, or if your caller ID says "unknown number," this is a helpful tool.
In general, reverse phone number lookups rely on public records to source the information they provide in search results. It often works on both landline and cell phone numbers, so you can find the owner of many phone numbers.
That said, if you are dealing with a possible scammer or even a legitimate telemarketer, they may be running their call through a fake phone number. This means it may be hard to use an unknown number to find a name or location if you are trying to track down a scam.
Are Reverse Phone Lookups Legal in California?
In general, using a reverse phone lookup in California is legal. It's also legal to search for a California number from another location. This is because these tools typically rely just on public records, so the data they put into a report would be something you could find on your own if you knew where to look. The reverse phone lookup service simply makes it potentially quicker and less stressful to get the information in hand, without hours spent searching these public databases and information locations.
Is There a Free Reverse Phone Lookup Service for California Numbers?
Yes, you can use ReversePhoneLookup.com to search for California numbers free* of charge. All you need to do is enter the California phone number into the search bar at the top of the page. We will then quickly run the search in an effort to find available information about the phone number.
ReversePhoneLookup.com’s free* reverse phone number lookup includes basic information, when available, about the owner of the phone number such as name, city, state, zip code.

A free reverse phone number lookup may be slightly limited. You may not find the owner's name of the phone number you're searching. You may, however, find the location and carrier information to verify that the number is, in fact, coming from California.
If you need more details for the number you are searching, you may be able to find them.

What Information Could I Find From a California Reverse Phone Number Lookup?
A paid California reverse phone number lookup may provide quite a bit of information about the number you have.
If you choose to go with a paid option like Intelius, some of the details that you could discover are the:
- Phone number owner's first and/or full name
- Phone number owner's zip code and/or street address
- Phone number owner's email addresses and/or social profiles
- Phone number owner's possible images
- Phone number owner's carrier and/or location.
If you need more information about the owner of the phone number, a people search tool may be another helpful tool. You can use it to run a background check and possibly find more details about the owner of the phone number. With a background check, you may receive criminal and traffic records, education and employment history, possible relatives, known addresses, known aliases, and more details. This type of background check can help you find people and find information using the data you have, which in this case is a phone number and the name of the phone number owner.
While a background check could give you more details, a reverse phone number lookup is a good starting point. Use the search engine on this page to get started, and see what information is out there for the California phone number you have.
