Look up phone number

Anyone have a link for a free reverse phone lookup service that works? It's a cell phone. I tried Google and only got dead ends and non-free information offers.
Seems I found one years ago but don't remember more.
TIA

Try 411.com or a general search. For crank calls you can also check whocallsme.com and whycall.me. Those two sites list info based on contributions from people visiting the site.
Aside from that, there's not much you can do. Phone spam has become so bad that many people no longer list their number. Cellphone numbers were never listed in the first place and people tend to protect that privacy. If it's not in the phone book there's no reason to expect you'll find it online.
I've always been curious about the paid versions, but as I understand it, companies pay a great deal of money to data merchants like Lexus Nexis, so I don't expect the results from a cheap service would be very impressive. And of course, you're then asking the fox about the other hens. The service might just charge you money and then add all of *your* private info to the database they resell.

Most free databases and/or online searches will provide an exact address "IF" the number is already listed, otherwise, it will simply display a general location and possibly the provider if it's a cell phone.
White Pages reverse look-up was pretty good in the past, but now it reverts to PeopleFinders.com who wants money along with other similar databases. Though, in many cases, an adamant searcher can discover much with basic Google searches. Many people stop after the first pages of Google but don't realize the next several pages can offer what they seek.
The better databases are those which are used by government, law enforcement, PIs, etc. and still require payment depending on type of account. They will provide the info sought regardless of it being listed or not. In fact, some will provide past residence, age, work history, property ownership, relatives and much more.

information (411) for a cell number, they cannot provide it except for very rare cases (if the cell number is listed in a yellow pages listing is one very rare example)

What part of google did you try?
The web search engine? Usually that works very well for spam callers.

Cell phones seem hard to find, I'm glad. As far as lookup, been using switchboard for 15 years.
