6 Best Reverse Phone Lookup Apps for iPhone

We’ve all had situations where we get calls from unknown numbers and there’s no way to trace it back to the source. However, there are multiple apps available today on the iTunes App Store that can help you perform a reverse lookup to ascertain who called you, and in some cases, even get information on names as well as other data about the individual.

If you have no idea which apps to pick, this list we’ve compiled for you is surely going to help. We’ll discuss five of the best reverse lookup apps for the iPhone. Bear in mind that while most of these apps are free to download, you may need to make an in-app purchase to access additional features.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at our list.

1. Truecaller

This is without a doubt one of the most popular reverse lookup apps out there and without a doubt one of the most effective as well. Truecaller has a large database of users (both registered and unregistered), which lets you get info on that missed call or the unknown number that you keep getting calls from. In addition to offering reverse lookup, Truecaller can also put a stop to spam, fraud and Robocalls by prompting you well in advance of your call, allowing you to take necessary steps accordingly.

You can even choose to block calls and texts from numbers using nothing but Truecaller, making this a truly powerful app to have on your iPhone. It’s a free download on the App Store and comes with ads and in-app purchases. The auto-renewing subscription can be monthly or yearly and the price depends on the option you chose.

2. Hiya

Hiya is equally popular as Truecaller and offers a wide range of features including reverse phone lookup. It basically lets you screen calls and makes decisions accordingly. This can be a great tool to get rid of spam or robocalls on your phone as well. As you would expect, the app also comes with the ability to completely block users, restricting them from ever contacting you again, be it through phone calls or via texts.

Registered users on Hiya can also add more details to their profile that will make it easier to identify them. This allows users to directly add contacts they know and trust using Hiya, along with all the details they have shared with the public. Hiya claims that the caller ID and spam blocking feature on the app works with AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint networks in the U.S. This is a free app on the App Store, but has in-app purchases for a premium subscription. Hiya’s premium subscription can be monthly or yearly and the price depends on the option you choose,

3. Reverse Lookup

This is a pretty basic but highly effective reverse phone lookup app that can help you search for numbers and get information on the caller instantly. It supports copy/paste functions from your keypad, while you can also choose to report numbers that you deem to be indulging in harassment or spam. This app also helps you differentiate between individuals and businesses, thus helping you keep the numbers you want and remove the ones you don’t.

Once you enter a 10-digit phone number on the app that you want information on, Reverse Lookup scours through the latest phone directory ensuring you only get access to the most recent data on a particular phone number. The best part about this app is that it’s completely free to download with no in-app purchases.

5. Whitepages

This is an excellent app for reverse phone lookup that goes further than most apps. It also supports background checks, allowing you to view criminal records, arrests, and public records with complete contact information. You can also search for a phone number to find out who owns it or get their background report which includes addresses as well as information on the public record.

The app also has features like reverse address search, essentially allowing you to search for an address and find out who lives there. You can also use the map view to look for businesses and other outlets in your surrounding areas. However, most of these features are available via the Whitepages premium subscription. Free users only get access to landline phone numbers and/or business information that’s relevant to you. If you’re looking to dive deeper into the features of the app, we recommend checking out the subscription as well as other paid offerings available within the app.

6. Phone Lookup Pro

This is a professional reverse phone lookup app that has slightly different functionality than the apps we spoke about above. While it functions in pretty much the same way as Truecaller or Hiya, Phone Lookup Pro comes with the ability to search for numbers and find photos or other data of the person who just contacted you. The app also has an Enhanced Spam Protection system which screens spam, telemarketers or robocalls with pretty decent efficiency. The makers of the app claim that this service works for both U.S. and Canadian numbers, although it may not work elsewhere.

This app has a caveat, however. While it’s free to download on the App Store, it doesn’t come with unlimited number searching. Free users only get 10 number lookups, following which a subscription will be needed. However, subscribers get access to unlimited searches and/or lookups.

Update: This app has been removed from iTunes
