What's new in this version (2.1.2):
•HTC One menu button fix
•Fixed an issue where some users would get a crash related to looking up an invalid phone number.
•Improved error reporting (enable in Preferences)
•Code optimization and version parity with RL+
Easily perform a reverse lookup of any unknown number in your call history(or entered manually).
After caller info is found, user can save contact, dial number, block future calls, map location,and more.
• There are NO monthly fees associated with this app!
• There is no public directory for cellphones, sorry.
• This app returns publicly available data as published by phone companies.
• If information returned is outdated, it's because it's outdated in the phone company's directory.
• The location being returned is typically the billing address for that number. It is impossible to return GPS data.
• CITY ID has now been identified as the software that conflicts with Reverse Lookup. If your phone came with CITY ID preinstalled you must deactivate it for Reverse Lookup to function properly. This software is included on many Verizon phones. Please see our website for more details.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How do I get the call list in the app to update?
A: Each time the app launches, it pulls the latest applicable numbers from your call log. If you have a phone with lots of RAM, it will update less frequently. To make sure it is always updated, exit the app by using your phones BACK button. This will kill the app each time, and when you use it next time it will launch fresh and update your numbers.
Q: How do I delete numbers from the main list in the app?
A: Just delete the numbers from your phone’s call log. Again, the app must relaunch to show this change, so follow the advice above as well.
Q: How do I unblock a number that I blocked with the app?
A: Open your contacts list, scroll to the bottom and you will find all the numbers you blocked with the app listed with the prefix zzBlocked. Just find the number you’d like to unblock and delete the contact that goes with it. Storing blocked numbers this way allows them to be blocked at the system level, which is the most consistent way to catch them.
Q: How does “One Click Mode” work?
A: In using Reverse Lookup ourselves, we realized that most of the time we launched it, we did so to lookup the most recent unknown call we’ve received.. One Click Mode is for anyone that primarily uses the app this way.
When this is activated in the preferences screen, each time you launch the app, it will bypass the call log list and immediately start to search for information on the most recent , unknown number in your log.
You can still access the main screen by using your phone’s back button after the lookup has finished.
Q: Only outgoing numbers are shown on the app's main screen..
A: If you have a Verizon phone, you most likely have City ID installed. This software hijacks your call log and it must be disabled in order for Reverse Lookup to work properly. See our website for info.

It wont work... htc evo
Works well for the reverse look up but the blocking calls tends to mess up a lot-droid incredible
Great app! Does what it's supposed to do w/o any registration. Even looks up 800 numbers, major plus! Haters probably trying to look up cellphones. :P
Pointless. Worthless. UNINSTALLED.
Works great. Droid
Works great. Quick Google access. Allows you to block unwanted callers.
This has come in handy a few times... I like it....HTC Incredible
It works..... but. . . .does not tell u who the cell fone caller is
Good so far
Doesn't seem to have a good database behind it. Another app identified 3/3 numbers, this one got 1 of the same 3. Its not even worth free at that rate
