Time to read: 2 minutes

Do you know how to trace a mobile number? Mobile Number Tracker is a service which allows you to trace a mobile number with its owner's name (if available), address (city & state), telecom operator. However it would be stupid to make assumption that information provided by this service is accurate all the times. It tries to give you the most accurate information, but sometimes it can be wrong as well.

How does Mobile Number Tracker Works? Mobile Number Tracker works on the data provided by TRAI (which is publicly available). It displays this information on Google Maps which is more understandable. So the first comes is how a mobile number in India is designed? The way to split the numbers is defined in the National Numbering Plan 2003 as XXXX-NNNNNN where XXXX is the Network operator, NNNNNN is the subscriber numbers. So let's say when you enter a number 9035092000, we split the first 4 digits of this number, and try to look-up for operator circle & operator name.

What all mobile tracking softwares are available? Frankly, there are many, but none which can give the current location of a mobile number. Though there are ways to get current location of a mobile; for example on Apple phones you can use Find My Friends. For all other mobile number tracking softwares, you can try one of the following software (based on your platform; Windows OS, iOS, Android, Windows Phone)

  • Telephone Directory: It is a Desktop Client by which you can trace out Mobile Codes, STD Codes, ISD Codes from your computer itself even when you are offline. It is available for FREE Download.
  • Mobile Number Locator (Java OS phones): Mobile Number Locator traces the information about any mobile number code like Service Provider, State, or Reference City. It is useful for tracing out from where a user got a missed call. Mobile Number Locator is valid for India only. This is especially for phones which are running on Java OS.
