Anytime you want more information about a person who owns a phone number, you might run a reverse phone number lookup. If the phone number in question begins with one of Maryland’s area codes, conducting a reverse phone number lookup in Maryland is a good first step toward gaining more information.
Through a reverse phone number lookup, you might learn who owns the phone number in question. The search also could reveal the service provider that administers that phone number, along with many other details.
People use the information that’s gleaned through reverse phone number lookups for a variety of purposes. They might use it to:
- Determine whether a phone number that keeps calling is a telemarketer or credit collector
- Determine whether a phone number calling could be from a scammer
- Verify that a phone number belongs to the person (or business) who claims to be calling
- See if an old acquaintance still uses a phone number
- See if a business still uses a phone number
Checking whether an acquaintance or business still uses their old phone number isn’t just so you know who will pick up if you call. If an acquaintance’s old number is registered to a different owner, the acquaintance may have moved out of the area. If a business isn’t still the owner of its old number, the business might have closed.
Without caller ID, a reverse phone number lookup can be one of the easiest ways to learn about the person or business that’s using a phone number. Even if you have caller ID, you may be able to find more information through a search.
In short, running a reverse phone number lookup in Maryland makes sense if you want to learn more about any phone number that’s likely from the state.
What Are Common Maryland Phone Number Area Codes?
All phone numbers in the United States (and Canada) are comprised of a three-digit area code and seven-digit local number. The area code comes first, and it must be dialed anytime you’re calling from outside of the area code’s region. In places where multiple area codes cover the same region (which is the case in most of Maryland), the area code must even be dialed when calling locally.
Each area code has a specific geographic region to which it’s assigned. There are five area codes assigned to regions throughout Maryland. A total of three area codes cover Eastern Maryland, and two cover Western Maryland:
- 210 area code: Western Maryland and the Washington, D.C. suburbs
- 301 area code: Western Maryland and the Washington, D.C. suburbs
- 410 area code: Eastern Marland, including Baltimore and the Eastern Shore
- 443 area code: Eastern Marland, primarily cell phones,
- 667 area code: Eastern Marland, primarily cell phones,
- The 201 and 301 area codes include Cumberland, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Hagerstown, Bethesda, Potomac, Landover, Waldorf, Silver Spring and Rockville.
While an area code can help indicate if a phone number originated from a particular region, it’s important to remember that it doesn’t mean a caller or owner of a phone number is still located there.
How Can I Lookup Someone’s Maryland Phone Number?
You can think of a phone number search as being the reverse of a phone book.
With a phone book, you use information about a phone number’s owner to learn what their number is. You search their name in the yellow pages and/or white pages, and find a number (unless they’re unlisted).
With a reverse phone number search, you use the phone number to learn information about the owner. You provide the number, and the search finds available information about who owns that number. Of course, searching online is also much faster than flipping through all the pages of a phone book -- even phone books for sparsely populated areas are quite thick.
Typically, in just three steps, you can complete a reverse phone number search:
- Enter the phone number (including area code)
- Click to search, and wait for results
- Review the available information that’s returned from the search
You might find out what telecom service carries the number, the location of the number, the name of the owner and many other details. Without caller ID, this is a simple and quick way to discover such information.
Are Reverse Phone Number Lookups Legal in Maryland?
Reverse phone number lookups are entirely legal for companies to provide, and they’re entirely legal for customers to use. You can legally run a reverse lookup regardless of whether you live in Maryland, or elsewhere in the United States.
The reason reverse phone number lookups are legal is because they often return only public records. The information provided is sourced from documents and other information that’s available to the public.
The main value added that a reverse lookup provides is time. You could even find all of the information yourself, although finding many of the details requires time and knowhow. Using a reverse phone number lookup search can be much faster.
You should know that the information found in a reverse phone number lookup’s results is only as reliable as what’s publicly available.
Scammers frequently falsify information that’s entered into public record, and a reverse phone number lookup will return that false information if a phone number is being used by a scammer. You can often tell when a scammer has falsified information, though, and simply knowing that will then allow you to ignore the call.
