Reverse phone number lookup area codes

How do I locate a phone number that’s calling me?
You can click on any area code to find out the state to which that area code belongs. You can also enter the phone number in the search button above, which will give you information about the city and state where that phone number is usually located. However, it’s possible for someone to get phone numbers in one place and use them “virtually”, which means the caller could actually be anywhere.
How can I see which numbers are most dangerous in my area code?
You can easily see the most recent user spam reports in any given area code simply by clicking it. You can actually use another web site, robocallindex.com, to get statistics on any area code – including the most active robocallers in that area code, how often they call, and what they are likely calling about.
Are some area codes worse than others for spam calls?
Yes. However, trying to get a new phone number in a different area code doesn’t really work to stop scam calls. The best thing to do is to get a robocall blocking app like YouMail, which will block spam calls regardless of your area code.
How do I stop getting spam calls from 1-800 numbers?
Unfortunately, toll-free numbers are often abused by spammers and scammers. The best thing to do is get a call blocking app like YouMail, which knows which numbers are misbehaving and will do its best to block the fraudsters from ringing your phone or leaving you messages.
How many active area codes are there?
There are roughly 330 area codes that are actively in use right now. However, the spammers and scammers often just make up the area code, which is why you get strange area codes. But you can rest assured area codes like 001, 199, and 300 are not legitimate area codes. If you look up a number and the area code is “invalid”, it’s a guarantee that it’s a scammer calling, so don’t answer the phone.
