Perform a New York reverse phone number lookup, and you could discover a phone number’s owner, their location, and other information. These details could be useful in several ways.
Some people simply want to know whether a person still owns their old phone number. An old friend or acquaintance will probably answer if they still have their number. A person who no longer owns their phone number may have moved (or more tragically passed away).
A reverse phone number lookup could be used to check a business’s number for similar purposes. You could find out if a business still owns the same number, or the business may now be closed if it’s not registered as the owner of an old number.
Whatever you want to find out, reverse phone number lookups can usually be conducted on United States phone numbers. If the phone number you’re interested in has a New York area code, a New York reverse phone number lookup is a sensible way to begin investigating the number.
What Are Common New York Area Codes?
The three-digit prefix before a local phone number is that number’s area code. The prefix indicates where a phone number originated, including the state and often the part of the state.
Knowing a phone number’s area code isn’t a guarantee that the owner is still in that location. People regularly move, and they’re increasingly keeping their phone numbers even if moving out of state. An area code normally does indicate where a phone number is registered, though, and where you should begin any reverse phone lookup.
Because New York is such a populated state, it is canvassed by many area codes. Each has a specific geographic region either Downstate or Upstate.
The five New York City area codes are:
- 212, 332 and 646: Manhattan
- 347, 718 and 929: Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island
- 917: All New York City boroughs
Other notable Downstate New York area codes are:
- 516: Nassau County (Westbury, Freeport, Glen Cove, etc.)
- 631 and 934: Suffolk County (Stonybrook, Riverhead, Southampton, etc.)
- 845: Southeastern New York (Poughkeepsie, Newburgh, West Point, etc.)
- 914: Westchester County (White Plains, Scarsdale, etc.)
Notable Upstate New York area codes are:
- 315 and 680: Central and Northern New York (Syracuse, Watertown, Utica etc.)
- 518 and 838: Capital District and Northeastern New York (Albany, Saratoga Springs, etc.)
- 585: Western New York (Rochester, Batavia, Wellsville, etc.)
- 716: Western New York (Buffalo, Olean, Niagara Falls, Jamestown, etc.)
- 607: Southern Tier and Finger Lakes (Binghamton, Elmira, Ithaca, Bath, etc.)
How Can I Look Up Someone’s New York Phone Number?
Looking up a New York landline or cell phone number is often simple with a reverse phone number lookup. To look up a phone number on ReversePhoneLookup.com all you need to do is:
- Put the area code + local number into the search bar
- Click so that the search runs
- Review any available information
The reverse phone number lookup tool functions in the opposite way that a phone book’s yellow and white pages do. You don’t search for a name, and find the corresponding cell phone or landline number. Instead, you enter a phone number and find a corresponding name. Sometimes you can learn other details, too.
This is a quick way to check for a phone number’s information if you don’t have caller ID, or if you want to see whether more information than caller ID provides is available.
Are Reverse Phone Number Lookups Legal in New York?
Oftentimes, you can legally look up a New York phone number using a reverse phone lookup service. These services generally provide information that’s sourced from public records, which is information that anyone can check. You’ll likely save a lot of time by using a reverse phone number lookup, however.
Because the information that ReversePhoneLookup.com returns is sourced from public records, the accuracy of public records determines the accuracy of the search tool. Should scammers provide false information, reverse phone number search tools may return inaccurate information.
Is There a Free Reverse Phone Number Lookup Service for New York Numbers?
ReversePhoneLookup.com provides a free* reverse phone number search for New York numbers. Navigate to the search bar at the top of the page, provide the phone number, and run the search.
ReversePhoneLookup.com’s free* reverse phone number lookup offers basic information, when available, about the owner of the phone number that could include a 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.
While a free reverse phone number lookup is often useful, there can be limits as to what information these services are able to provide. A free lookup might only provide a number’s location and carrier information, or other basic details.
Paid reverse phone lookups might be able to provide more information, if more information is available through public records searches. Paid phone lookups sometimes have greater resources to search public records with.
