cell phone owners name

Does anyone know how to get the owner's name for a cell phone without having to pay? My stolen phone has been called numorously by a cell phone from Sprint.

Your carrier can put a trap/trace on it.  But, they will only release information to a LEO with a valid investigation, or to you if you are holding the court order for them to release.

If your phone is stolen, and you are still receiving (and paying) the bill...why haven't you killed the phone and gotten a replacement?

Sounds like something fishy going on here.

You've already asked this question at: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Digital_Living/Hardware/Cell_Phones/Q_23846609.html

And, you've received the correct answer.

What aren't you telling us?  Why are you trying to track a stolen phone instead of killing it?

Just because you don't understand something, does not make it fishy! Thank you for your comments though. Initially I puchased membership here to find out if and how I could locate 'my' stolen phone. Upon recieving my itemized phone bill, I was simply trying to find out the 'names' to the numbers that appear multiple times for more than 1 minute. Possibly indicating a group of individuals from which I might ascertain the theif. Oh yeah, try killing service and see if you ever see your phone again!!!See any fish?

P.S. I chose to pay for the information I needed (Intellus) rather than look for HELP from YOU! I plan to cancel this site subscription soon, so reach me now if you need.

fogiii,

There are reverse phone directories, which allow you to look up names and sometimes even addresses (for landline phones) if you have the phone number. You could also try calling a few of the frequently-called numbers and see who answers. But, I suspect it's unlikely you'll see the phone again. I would cancel service on that phone and get another (perhaps via eBay, etc).

Cheers,
LHerrou
