You’ve seen them. Those ugly, black and white splotchy looking things that show up in magazine ads, on billboards, even on your box of cereal. Called QR Codes (for Quick Response Codes), they look like gibberish or almost as if some accident had occurred in the printing process and left this awful looking blob on the page.

Ten or so years ago, you could look at the area code and you could usually tell when you were dealing with a local number. If your area code is 607, for example, any number that starts with that code would be nearby. However, you may have no idea that a code is local because new Reverse phone lookup may have been added to your local area. It depends on where you live and how dense your population is. You may not need reverse area code lookup if you recognize the number, but you may be looking at a local number without realizing it.

Since these codes are assigned by the USPS it means that is where they are available from. You can go to the USPS site and you will be able to get the codes for any place in the country. All you have to do is type the address whose code you want to find and search. This is one way of how to how to lookup a zip code. The search will then bring back the code for the address that you typed.

The area covered by the area code 503 contains some of the largest cities in Oregon. These include Salem, Portland, Tillamook, and Astoria. The 503 code was once the only code in Tillamook and Clatsop counties, but was supposed to change in April of 2008. The overlay of area code 971 is meant to cover the entire area covered by area code 503.

Perhaps it can be seen as a negative that these days anyone’s number can be looked up so easily. The good thing about reverse Number lookup is that it presents you with a heap of data, in all probability more than what you thought you would get. You might be able to get such info as their income level, street address, name, what they do for a living etc.

The first three numbers, as you may know, can give you a state of origin. The area code has been used for a long time, and it does pinpoint location up to a point. There are a few states that have only one area code, but many now have much more than that. This is because the popularity of cellular phones has increased the demand for phone numbers so much that new ones were added to open up options.

It is that simple to conduct a reverse cell lookup, and it’s completely legal to lookup cell numbers, and your search should be 100% anonymous, again this may very from company to company, but from my experience most are anonymous.
