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So, it’s a natural to take the WhitePages database of 600MM listings – including hard to find mobile and unpublished numbers — and make it available through text.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!
