Cell Phone Reverse Lookup Request
To add this thread as a favorites, you need to first login.
“Please contact me if you have the ability to do a reverse look up on a cell phone number.”
“Almost nobody does, because cellphone companies don't publish their subscribers' phone numbers anywhere. If you're being harassed, contact your phone company, or cellphone company, and explain the situation, and let them handle it. If they won't, contact the police.

“I realize almost no one does.. but I thought someone might. As for being harrassed.. not quite. It's weirder than that. It was a long shot, but I'd thought I'd ask.
I know it's a she. I know her name is Lisa, I know her cell phone number, and I know it's a number based out of Dyersburg.
Other than that, nada.”
“What the heck's going on then? Come on, TownDawg, give us details man.”
“I wish it was that exciting.
Barb (my mother in law) comes over to the house the other night with John's (her husband) cell phone -- let's Deb (my wife) hear a voice message left on the phone.. that goes basically.. "Hi John, this is Lisa. Got your message, and you can call me anytime."
Somehow I (the resident computer geek) got recruited to find out who it was.”
“You realize that you are prohibited by HMWC rules from assisting in this investigation, right?”
“The thick plottens!”
“My idea: Call the number and ask Lisa who she is.
Your best course of action: Let your mother-in-law do her own dirty work.”
“The thott plickens?”
“HeeHee! Kind of reminds me of, "Gee honey, I have no idea who left those pantyhose in the glove box!"”
“TD, this could get you in legal trouble. Like Bit says, let your in law take the heat.”
“I already tried to wiggle out of it.. but I think I'm just going to plead no contest -- and tell them until the FCC starts releasing cell numbers to the usual reverse lookup engines.. I can't do much.”
“Don't even try wiggling. Best thing to do is look your MIL in the eye and say "It's immoral, unethical, and legally questionable for me to assist you in this. Please handle it yourself."*
Then, deal with the consequences, if any.
*HMWHC manual pg. 92.”
“Hey, Town...... I don't have a date this weekend...... give me the number and I"LL call her !!
And when my name and number shows up on her caller ID, she'll know that "JOHN" is calling!! ha ha ha ha ha he he he he

“And you're only gonna get in the chit from some side of the family or other. Step away from this one as rapidly as you can. She needs to ask who Lisa is. Sounds pretty innocent, he's giving her the cell phone then he's not feeling guilty.”
“I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole, especially for friends or relatives. No matter what happens, a bad outcome will somehow be thought by most people that you were at fault.”
“Guys, guys, guys.....
We are talking about TD here, the King of Getting Into Weird Chit! ;-)”
“ain't no "Getting Into" about it TD is the King of Weird Chit - wasn't he the one that invented the turd twister?”
“"I know nothing" ( in my best Sgt Shultz voice)
I have found in the past to NOT get involved.......cause somehow I get into trouble....
...like when I told my best friend her boyfriend asked me out.....she married him.....I was history : (”
“Isn't that the truth, Div? I have been in that situation myself. I got hit on by a guy, repeatedly and persistently one night. I rebuffed his advances saying that even though I was single, it was common knowledge that he was not, and I would under no circumstances be a party to that kind of business. I understand that he told his gf some completely different version of what happened. Of course she believes him. But I did nothing wrong and it is not my place to educate her. She would never believe me over him anyway. So I just kept my mouth shut.”
“Men are pigs.”
“Ruby is such a hussy!
div too! ;-)

“on the other hand.....I had another incident where a GF was in the hospital after having a baby.....her hubby was drunk ....and I said no....and I never told anyone.....and all is well.....sometimes ignorance is bliss.....”
“speaking of voicemails....
Yesterday I was leaving a construction site, was hot, and tired. I was at a redlight in Huntsville's research park. Low traffic and 4 lane roads. I was leaving a client a VM. My peripheral vision picked up a light turning green (turn lane) so I hit the gas, got halfway through light, realized what I had done, and turned up the wrong way of the divided lanes to my right. All the while I'm on the phone. blah, blah, blah, SHOOT (yes, I verified, I said shoot), I JUST RAN A REDLIGHT, gained composure, blah, blah, Hey, I'll bet this voicemail becomes the hit of the office today, blah, and finished my message. When I got a call back in 10 minutes their whole office had already heard it on speaker phone.”
“Hey, you're driving like a Huntsvillian already!”
“At the next light I got a dirty look. I just held up my hands and shrugged my shoulders. The big crane you see over research park is the project I'm working on. It was a roof pour (5th level) and you can really see the space ctr from there. Pretty cool when your view is a rocket.”
“I can't see the crane for the trees, but that's right over by where I work, which is at the intersection of RPB and Bradford Drive.”
“Dayhiker...what company is doing the concrete?????”
“I don't recall. The mix submittals were probably done in the spring. I look at the reinforcing on Wed afternoons and the concrete trucks show up about 2-3am on Thur morning.”
“My roomy's BF works as a salesman for one of the companies.....so, just wondering... : )
...and you sure give the "talking on a cell while driving " folks a bad name!!!!
did I understand that right???....you were going the wrong way????”
“I turned right onto the intersecting road and went the wrong way, but came right back out. It was not fun.”
“sheesh......I will wear a helmet if I ever ride with you...
“This really related back to having a few days without much sleep. I'm a good driver, just ask me!”
“LOL..sure....ok...whatever......uh huh....we believe ya.....”
“Years ago my fiancee was helping me to change the sheets on my bed(in the Panama Canal Zone). She discovered female jewelry between the mattress and the headboard. Try explaining that!
I did change the sheets often, but to this day I have no idea who put the jewelry there. Ah, the good old days!

“Well here's the update. I took the advice of bitpusher: "It's immoral, unethical, and legally questionable for me to assist you in this. Please handle it yourself."
I wish. Actually, I showed deep concern that I was unable to help, but "until the FCC released cell phone numbers for public consumption, there was just no way" that I could help at this time.
Barb called the number and get Lisa's VM. Deb called the number, from another phone a little later, and still got Lisa's VM. Fortunately, whoever it is, and why she told John he could call anytime, is not no longer any of my concern.
As for SS's comment regarding my ability to be able to always get into sum weird chit -- "whatever."
I won't even challenge that, but I will pass on this little tidbit that should give you a laugh!
MAN DEAD AFTER MIXING POOL CHEMICALS
A Bruceton man died of chemical pneumonia after mixing pool chemicals. He had mistakenly assumed that substituting a little bleach for powdered chlorine shock would present no problem, and inadvertently produced a green cloud of chlorine gas. Because of inhaling, the victim started coughing violently, with the severely irritating odor of the gas infusing his nasal passages and lungs. As the victim continued to have symptoms that included burning in his throat and chest, he underwent an examination at a hospital where he was diagnosed with acute pneumonia and liver function impairment due to chemical damage. He died at the age of 49 just before 10pm that evening.
On a related note, the German Army first used chlorine gas cylinders in April 1915 against the French Army at Ypres. French soldiers reported seeing yellow-green clouds drifting slowly towards the Allied trenches. They also noticed its distinctive smell which was like a mixture of pineapple and pepper. At first the French officers assumed that the German infantry were advancing behind a smoke screen and orders were given to prepare for an armed attack. When the gas arrived at the Allied front-trenches soldiers began to complain about pains in the chests and a burning sensation in their throats.
Most soldiers now realised they were being gassed and many ran as fast as they could away from the scene. An hour after the attack had started there was a four-mile gap in the Allied line. As the German soldiers were concerned about what the chlorine gas would do to them, they hesitated about moving forward in large numbers. This delayed attack enabled Canadian and British troops to retake the position before the Germans burst through the gap that the chlorine gas had created.
Chlorine gas destroyed the respiratory organs of its victims and this led to a slow death by asphyxiation. One nurse described the death of one soldier who had been in the trenches during a chlorine gas attack. “He was sitting on the bed, fighting for breath, his lips plum coloured. He was a magnificent young Canadian past all hope in the asphyxia of chlorine. I shall never forget the look in his eyes as he turned to me and gasped: I can’t die! Is it possible that nothing can be done for me?” It was a horrible death, but as hard as they tried, doctors were unable to find a way of successfully treating chlorine gas poisoning.”
“Don't listen to 'em TD. Go for it. Hit a home run.
(Psssst, what, are you people crazy? Let him do it. We can use some spice around here!)”
“Sorry TD. That was meant as humor, not a put down.”
“Well, my advice is worth exactly what you paid for it, lol...

“Poor Lisa, I bet she's just some clerk who was helping him with a sale or something.”
“Poor John...possibly being falsely accused. Why doesn't Barb just ask him?”
“OK, that was mean.

“What was that old country song: "I'm not Lisa?"”
“By Jessi Colter
I'M NOT LISA,
MY NAME IS JULIE.
LISA LEFT YOU... YEARS AGO.
MY EYES ARE NOT BLUE,
BUT MINE WON'T LEAVE YOU,
'TIL THE SUNLIGHT
HAS TOUCHED YOUR FACE.
SHE WAS YOUR MORNING LIGHT.
HER SMILE TOLD OF NO NIGHT.
YOUR LOVE FOR HER GREW,
WITH EACH PASSING SUN.
AND THEN ONE WINTER DAY,
HIS HAND LED HER AWAY.
SHE LEFT YOU HERE,
DROWNING IN YOUR TEARS.
HERE, WHERE YOU STAYED FOR YEARS,
CRYING "LISA", "LISA."”
“I'd do my own investigating, then ask him who she is, see what he says...haha!”
“I know my Deb and Barb both pretty well. They have a way of making you feel guilty, even when you are completely innocent.”
“Ahhh yes, guilt and marriage. They go together well.”
“bit, saying men are pigs is an insult to pigs. They are pretty cute when they are small and they are smart too and can even be tasty when combines with turkey breast and mayo:)”
