You may run a reverse phone number lookup in Maine for a variety of reasons. Searching could reveal what service is connected with the phone number, who the owner of the number is, and further information. These details could be useful for a variety of reasons.
People have a variety of reasons for running reverse phone number lookups, and you might want to run one for any of these reasons.
First, many people simply want to know who owns the phone number that is repeatedly calling. A phone search could show that someone you know or someone else altogether owns a phone number. Perhaps the caller is a debt collector, an angry ex, or that person you accidentally gave a number to at the bar.
Knowing who owns a phone number could help you address the repeated calls in an appropriate way. You’ll know if you should ask the person to stop calling, have a single conversation, or ignore the calls altogether.
Second, a few people run phone number searches to see if someone they know still owns an old number. You might just want to know whether an old acquaintance will answer if you call a number, or you could check whether someone moved and thus changed their number. If a business no longer uses a number, the business might have moved or (more likely) closed.
No matter what your purpose in running a reverse phone search is, you could discover insightful details.
What Are Common Maine Area Codes?
An area code is a three-digit prefix that precedes a local phone number. The prefix shows what state a phone number is from. It may be written with parentheses (e.g. (123) 456-7890) or a hyphen (e.g. 123-456-7890).
Beginning with a Maine reverse phone number search makes sense if the phone number you’re looking up begins with one of the state’s three-digit area codes. The three-digit prefix is a good indicator of what state a phone number originates from, even if the person calling is currently located somewhere else.
Essentially the entire state of Maine is serviced by the 207 area code, and this is essentially the only area code for the state. The 207 area code covers Portland, Bangor, Acadia, Downeast and Inland.
There are a few rural exceptions along the border with Canada, where Maine towns aren’t serviced by the Maine 207 area code. For example, Escort Station and some other small towns along the border fall under the Quebec area code jurisdiction of 418, 581 and 367.
For all intents and purposes, you can assume that a number is from Maine if it’s calling with a 207 area code. Should you be curious about a phone number that starts with this prefix, a Maine phone number search is the first step in learning more about the number.
How Can I Look Up Someone’s Maine Phone Number?
A reverse phone number lookup functions a lot like a backward phonebook. Whereas you’d rifle through a phone book’s yellow and/or white pages looking for a name, you instead enter a phone number into this type of search. A reverse phone lookup will then search for information that’s available about the number, often including an owner name if it’s available through that particular search tool.
Typically, you only need minutes (if that) to run a phone number search. It’s likely quicker than rifling through the phone book:
- Enter the area code and local phone number into the search box
- Press enter or click on the button to begin the search
- Find available information that the search returns
You should be aware of the limitations of a reverse phone number search. Scammers will often mask their actual names with several techniques. If a scammer lists false information about a number, a search tool won’t necessarily uncover the real scammer’s name or whereabouts. You can probably deduce that a scammer is using the number in this situation, however, and simply knowing that a scammer uses a number should be enough for you to ignore any calls from it.
Are Reverse Phone Number Lookups Legal in Maine?
Often, the information that a reverse phone number lookup provides has been sourced from records that are publicly available in Maine. This makes these search tools legal to use, because they provide info that is found in the public record (which is why it can be difficult for the tool to identify a scammer’s real name).
In fact, you theoretically could find the information that a reverse phone number lookup provides yourself. The benefit of the tool doesn’t lie in any secret methodology, but rather in the efficiency with which it gathers, organizes and collates data. You’d likely spend a day or more searching for the same information for just one number, much less multiple ones.
Is There a Free Reverse Phone Number Lookup Service for Maine Numbers?
You can run a free* reverse phone number lookup for Maine numbers on ReversePhoneLookup.com. The search bar is located at the top of the page, and it can provide results soon after you enter a number and click to search.
ReversePhoneLookup.com powered by Intelius offers a free* reverse phone number lookup that includes basic information, when available, about the owner of the phone number such as name, city, state, zip code. Additionally, when available it may also include info related to a phone number such as area code, exchange code, zip code coverage, original line type, carrier type, original coverage area, and switch CLLI Code.
The extent of information that you could uncover via a free reverse phone number lookup service might be limited in some instances. A free reverse phone number search service might only show a phone number’s location and/or its carrier, for instance.
For more information, paid phone lookup services are available for Maine phone numbers. Paid services have more resources at their disposal, and thus can search to provide more detailed information.
In either case, a phone lookup service is likely the easiest way to learn about a phone number’s basic information if you don’t have caller ID. A paid service will probably give you more information even if you do have caller ID, and a free reverse phone lookup service could have some helpful details too.
What Information Could I Find From a Maine Phone Number Lookup?
The information that you could learn from a Maine phone number lookup depends on the type of search (i.e. free/paid) and the number being searched.
If you choose to upgrade to a paid Reverse Phone Number Lookup, such a service may provide a wide range of information, such as:
- The full name of the phone number’s owner
- Information about the number’s phone carrier
- Phone number owner’s location history
- Other owner contact information
- Social media pages or listings associated with the owner
- Possible Images of the owner
- And more!
In many cases, a paid background check can provide even more information. Background checks might show a person’s educational, criminal records and employment history, as well as possible family members.
However much information you want to ascertain, running a free reverse phone number lookup is a good first step. You can continue on with a paid lookup and background check if you want to.
