Cell phone numbers not being considered as public information

August 12th, 2008 by Andreas Xavier in Phone numbers, Unlisted phone numbers. Topics:

Often you might have received emails which state that the cell phone users need to register their mobile numbers with the National Do Not Call Registry in order to avoid the calls made by the telemarketing executives. You must note that these all are fake emails as the telemarketers are strictly prohibited by the law to call up on wireless phones. The cell phone numbers have always remained as a private source of identity and will continue to be so in the future as well.

There are a host of reasons as to why the cell numbers are not considered as public information. Even though there has been a wide amount of interest worldwide to create a public directory which will contain mobile numbers, yet these numbers will never be published in a public directory.

One of the vital reasons for this the cell phone charges which is much higher than that of landline telephones. There are certain other charges that are involved in the use of cell phones, for instance, charges on call waiting, texting, caller ID, accessing internet, and so on. The users also need to pay for every additional value that they add to their monthly plan. Eventually it puts the users at risk of being charged for unwanted calls from unknown identities. This prohibits the cell phone numbers from being public information. However, you can always have the advantage of finding information about the owner of a particular number by making use of reverse phone lookup.

There is also another reason as to why the cell phone numbers are not considered public information. It is because often the cell phone owners change their numbers at the time of switching off to other phone providers or getting new mobile phone for themselves. This makes the accumulation of accurate information very difficult for the person who is indulged in the act.

One cannot rule out the possibility that cell phone numbers would never become public information but there is no such possibility in the near future.
