What do you do when you get a phone call from an unfamiliar number? If your phone indicates it’s a Florida area code, or if you have some other reason to suspect the call is a Florida phone number, you could do a Florida reverse phone number lookup.
What is a reverse phone number lookup for a Florida number? It’s an online search that can provide you information about the owner of a phone number that you think may be coming from Florida. It can be useful if you’re getting repeated calls from telemarketers or from Florida callers that appear to be scam artists. You could find out information about the owner of the phone number that is calling without having to answer the phone and talk to them.
You might have a number you want to learn more about if you haven't been getting calls. For example, you may have a Florida number that you think might belong to an old friend or an estranged family member. You could find out who might own the phone number before you actually pick up your phone and dial.
What Are Common Florida Phone Number Area Codes?
If you’re not sure whether a call is coming from a Florida number, you can often tell by looking at the area code.
These are the area codes for the major metro areas:
- Common Miami area codes: 305 and 786
- Common Tampa area codes: 813 and 656
- Common Orlando area codes: 407 and 321
- Common Jacksonville area code: 904
- Other common Florida area codes: 754, 561, 850, 321, 352, 727, 239, 941, 772, 386 and 863.
Many calls from these area codes originate from Florida. However, some callers will use area codes from regions or states other than the one they’re calling from.
How Can I Lookup Someone's Florida Phone Number?
One of the best ways to find out who a Florida phone number belongs to is to use a reverse phone number lookup service. It’s kind of the opposite of the old phone book. Instead of looking up the name to find the number, you’re using the number to find the name. You enter the phone number on a search page, and the service comes back with information associated with that number.
The phone book white pages were only useful for locating landline numbers, but often the reverse service works on cell phones and landlines alike. Where does it find the information? As it turns out, many people and businesses have at one time or another recorded their number on some kind of public forum or database. A reverse phone number lookup service will typically be familiar with these and know how to go through them.
With many calls, the number you see on your phone is the actual number the call is coming from. However, that’s not always the case. Scammers and some telemarketers will route their calls through a fake phone number. In that case, it may be more difficult to figure out who called.
Are Reverse Phone Number Lookups Legal in Florida?
Yes, running a reverse lookup is legal in Florida, using data sources that are publicly available. If you knew all the places to look and had the tools to search these public records, you could do the lookup yourself. It’s a lot quicker and simpler, though, to use a tool that does all the virtual legwork for you.
It’s also legal to do a search on a Florida number from another state or to look up an out-of-state number from Florida.
