This app can detect the service provider of over 100 million cell phones in the United States; that's 100,000,000 numbers!
WILL CELL PHONE PROVIDER DETECTOR ALWAYS GET THE SERVICE PROVIDER CORRECT?
Our system detects the original wireless service provider that a cell phone number was registered with. If the number has since been changed to a different carrier, then the system will fail.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DETECT THE CARRIER?
It will take anywhere from a couple of second to a minute.
WILL CELL PHONE PROVIDER DETECTOR ALWAYS BE ABLE TO DETECT A CARRIER?
The detector will work most of the time, but as of right now it is not possible with this app to detect the carrier of every cell phone in the United States.
Currently, the following carriers can be detected:
Corr Wireless Communications
General Communications Inc. (GCI)
Rural Cellular Coorporation
USA Mobility Wireless
West Central Wireless
