Hi Bill,
 
No, my number has always been a Verizon number.  I didn't try any other numbers, but if porting numbers messes with the search process it's going to be wrong a good percentage of the time, with the advent of people changing carriers for better rates and such.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Hi, Mike. Did you have your number ported from another phone? This is often where problems creep into the process of determining which carrier serves the individual user.

Hi Bill,

 

I tried this website using my cell phone area code and prefix info and their info was totally wrong!  My number is a Verizon domain and their info was,

 

NEW CINGULAR WIRELESS PCS, LLC     

 

I also filled in all the required fields and the search results came out the same as above.  I tried my wife's cell phone info and it came out correct searching with only the area code and prefix.

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Hi, Mike. If Dave knows the area code and prefix, the following website will tell him if it is a cell phone or land line prefix, and what carrier that prefix is connected with. Just put the area code and prefix into the corresponding fields, and press ENTER, and all the info will come up.

Yes there sure are providing  you know what carrier / domain the cell number is using.

 

he was looking for a website that will tell you what carrier / domain a cell number is using, or at least that's the way I understood the question.

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

If it is the domains for eMail to Text someone wants, there are free web pages listing carriers and their associated domains.

Like, Verizon customers, you email to:

10 digit number @vtext.com

or

10 digit number @vzwpix.com

Hi Dave,

 

I use the web site below, but I purchased $10 worth of credits which got me 1,000 .  It costs 1 credit per phone number lookup.

 

You enter the cell phone number and then it lists what the SMS and MMS domains are for that number.

Greetings All,  Once upon a time I had saved a website that would convert a known cell phone number to one with its proper cell phone extension but this site no longer works and the many searches I did returned nothing comparable.

If someone has a current site they use for this purpose, I would appreciate learning of it and I thank you.  Mitch
