Four ways to trace a Mobile Phone number in India

Getting a missed call from an unknown Mobile Phone Number is quite common. Earlier around 2-3 years ago it wasn’t tough to figure out who gave that missed call, because of a limited number of mobile phone service providing companies, just by looking at first 3-4 digits of the number you could guess that this number belongs to a particular region. Hence, you could often make a guess who gave you that missed call.  Here we will share tools that can help you trace mobile number India

However, now the scenario has changed, and even in your region, there are several new series, and it is tough to guess the area or the operator on by looking at the starting digits of the phone number. Here are some simple ways to find it out.

Related: if you have lost your phone or mobile, then use this official tool from TRAI. It can track the phone using IMEI. You can file an FIR, and then ask TRAI to locate your phone.
