KnowPhone.com Review

Monday, May 07, 2012 Posted by Dina N

All phone numbers in our household have been on the do not call list for years. Yet, we often get annoying calls from strange numbers. We get missed calls without messages, and when we call back the phone just rings and rings. It would be nice to know who's calling -  and with KnowPhone.com, I could.

KnowPhone.com is an online reverse phone lookup database. I tried out their flagship product, the Platinum Pass. It provides unlimited searches across a variety of public records, phone numbers, criminal records and more. They offer five broad categories of searches: phone, people, email, criminal record, and genealogy.

Under phone searches, you can search for just a phone number, for unlisted numbers, cell phone numbers, or do a premium phone search. I noticed that for some numbers, each of these searches offers results that are a little different. To get the most comprehensive information, I suggest running all of the searches for each phone number you are interested in checking. The searches yield names and addresses of people who have owned that phone number at various times. I was surprised to see results even for unlisted phone numbers that should be, by definition, unavailable.

For name searches, you'd need first and last name as well as state of residence.  The results provide age, address, date reported, and sometimes a phone number. There are also people searches by address, relatives search and neighbor search.

I found the site very easy to navigate. I like the simple layout - no annoying adds or pop-up screens here. Most of the personal information I was able to verify was correct, with the possible exception of people's ages. The company states that sometimes they don't have all the data but try to be upfront and as honest as possible with everyone - which is also why they offer a 100% Ironclad any time guarantee. Unlimited platinum pass access to KnowPhone.com costs $19.95 per month, or $239.40 per year.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    Boy, this would have come in handy a couple months ago. We were getting calls way out of what you'd think would be the 'approved' time of day.

    Good to know. I thought I was on a do not call list too. Of course now I'm getting a lot of political election calls now - guess they don't count for the do not call.

    We got rid of our land line a few years back when we thought we sold our house. Good to know about this if we decide to get it back.

    This is good information but I don't know that I would pay $19.95 per month to have the service. Then again, we don't get very many calls as it is, even with the landline.
