I guess it depends where you’re from… In Canada, it’s possible via Canada411.
I don’t know about other countries.

However, you could always block that number without knowing who it is and not be bothered by it anymore… You’ll wonder who it was for a while, but that curiosity will fade eventually, as you have better things to do than waste time on that type of immature behaviour…

You can do a reverse phone lookup on whitepages.com. if its a cell you can at least see where the number is based out of, if its a home phone it will tell you who its registered under if they are listed.

I agree with egb. Block the number, and the other option is to google it and see if anything pops up. You might also consider documenting everything you receive in case you need to prove harrassment.

If it escalates and the person starts calling you from a blocked number…there is a free internet service that unmasks the block for you. Trapcall.

You could try this,

call their number and listen to the voicemail message. If they always answer and hang up, call 267-SLY-DIAL and then listen to some ads (so the service is free) and they’ll ask for the number and you type it in and it will connect you to their vm and thier message with start playing. I use that anytime someone calls and doesn’t leave a message. It could be someone I don’t want to talk to you know? I heard people use this for calling bosses and creditors too. Lol, I hope this helps!

@MightySapphire: It came in really handy when a coworker kept calling my husband and hanging up from a blocked number all evening up until 1am. Psssyyycho!

I second the sly-dial.  Make sure you are calling from a cell phone and calling to a cell phone.  Called my boss from a landline once and it didnt’ work.
