LOOKUP by WhitePages: Identify Unknown Callers!

Blog-Blank

Put a name to unknown callers on any phone with LOOKUP text messaging.

Today we’re taking the covers off our latest mobile product – LOOKUP!   This new text messaging service is the first of its kind – and it’s amazingly simple to use.  Just text any 10-digit phone number to 566587 (LOOKUP) to find out who called or texted you.   Sound easy?  It is.

Of course, text messaging is the single most popular use of mobile phones aside from, well, calling.   What may surprise you is how many people are not only using text to keep in touch, but also to find information.  Some recent research showed that 38% of mobile phone users have searched for information using text messaging!

So, it’s a natural to take the WhitePages database of 600MM listings – including hard to find mobile and unpublished numbers — and make it available through text.  Now, if you have one of our new iPhone, Android or BlackBerry apps, you may already use WhitePages to find people and businesses on the go.   However, we wanted something that anyone could use, no matter what kind of phone they had.  Here’s how you do it:

  • Text any phone number to 566587 (LOOKUP).
  • We’ll tell you if we have a match.
  • Reply GO to see the caller name and address.

That’s it!   The service is available for $1.99 per match found, or $2.99 per month to look up as many numbers as you want.  That’s about the price of a call to 411 – but includes millions of numbers you can’t find anyway else.

Give it a try on your phone today – and happy texting!

    This sounds like a really cool application. I am floored by how big mobile apps are getting. But in this information age you can better believe that they are going to continue to gain popularity and will at some point surpass the internet as people’s primary internet surfing mechanism with mobile apps driving the craze. Thanks for the informative post, I digged it… literally!

    THIS IS A GREAT SERVICE! LOVEIT LOVE IT! I HAVE A QUESTION -LETS SAY YOU NEED TO USE LOOKUP AND YOU HAVE A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION BUT DONT HAVE YOUR CELL. CAN YOU USE YOUR PC?

  4. Jerry says:

    I use your service on my normal cell phone, and have the subscription. I am in the Army, currently in South Korea, and my normal phone is shut off while I am over here. How can I use your service with my current cell phone without incurring huge charges? I have a program installed on it that allows me to text the USA with a fake USA phone number.. but it doesnt work with your program.

    Hi Taker, Thanks for asking! We’ve seen our apps come together in many different ways, from agile sprints to longer engagements….moments of inspiration to fully planned roadmaps. I’m not sure what information would be most helpful to you, so feel free to send me an email explaining what’s on your mind, and I’ll see if we can help.
