Have you been receiving unidentified phone calls or texts from New Jersey area codes? If you want to know who owns the phone number, an ideal place to start is with a New Jersey reverse phone number lookup. This lookup is an online search that may tell you who owns that number.
The number may belong to a telemarketer or a possible scammer. It could belong to a bitter ex who has decided to use the telephone to call you relentlessly. You could determine from using a New Jersey reverse phone number lookup whether it’s someone you need to talk to or if it’s OK to block the calls. Maybe you actually talked to someone who called from New Jersey, but you’re not convinced the person was who they claimed to be. For example, they might have said they’re a cousin who’s in a jam and needs some money.
You may have a number in an old phone book that used to belong to a person or a business that you knew in the past. Wouldn’t it be nice to know if that entity still owns that phone before you pick up and dial?
No matter why you want to know who’s behind a phone number, a New Jersey reverse phone number lookup may be just the tool you’re looking for. It could tell you who you might find at the other end of the line.
What Are Common New Jersey Phone Number Area Codes?
In the days of landlines, the area code told you where the phone number was located. Today people move but keep their old area codes. Scammers and telemarketers will sometimes disguise their origin by routing their calls from a different area code. Still, if you see a New Jersey area code, there’s a good chance that the phone’s owner is in New Jersey.
New Jersey has 10 area codes. Many parts of the state have overlays, that is, some regions have two area codes.
- 201 and 551: Northeastern New Jersey, including Bayonne, Bergenfield, Cliffside Park, Englewood, Fair Lawn, Fort Lee, Hackensack, Hoboken, Jersey City, Kearny,Paramus, Ridgewood, Union City and West New York.
- 732 and 848: East Central New Jersey, encompassing Carteret, Lakewood, Long Branch, New Brunswick, Old Bridge, Perth Amboy, Rahway, Sayreville, Somerset and Toms River.
- 609 and 640: South Central New Jersey, covering Atlantic City, Beach Haven, Browns Mills, Cape May, Corbin City, Diamond Beach, Longport, Port Republic, Princeton and Trenton.
- 862 and 973: Northwestern New Jersey, including Essex County, Passaic County, Morris County, Sussex County, and small sections of Bergen and Hudson County.
- 908: West Central New Jersey, covering Elizabeth County, Union County, Somerset County, Warren County, Hunterdon County and parts of Morris County.

How Can I Lookup Someone’s New Jersey Phone Number?
At one time, if you wanted a phone number, you looked up an individual or business in the white or yellow pages of a phone book. You searched by name and found the number. With a reverse phone number lookup, you do the opposite. You search by number and the tool looks for the name.
Unlike the old phone directory, the search is online rather than through a physical book. Also unlike the phone directory, the tool isn’t limited to landlines. The tools can often search cell phone numbers as well.
It’s simple to use. You enter the 10-digit number in the search bar and the tool searches for the owner and number info and provides results of the search.
You should note that sometimes scammers hide their location by “spoofing” a number so that the area code you see on your phone isn’t actually the source of the call. If no owner name shows up in a report, the call may be from a scammer.
Are Reverse Phone Number Lookups Legal in New Jersey?
Yes, the searches are completely legal. A New Jersey reverse phone number lookup provides information that’s publicly available. Any member of the public is entitled to discover this information. However, a search tool finds, compiles and often provides results of what it finds much more quickly than an individual can find searching on their own.
