28 Oct Is There an Alltel Phone Book?
Anyone with a cell knows how difficult it can be to find someone cell number if they are not in your contact list. Unless you know someone else with their cell number, it is actually impossible to get their number. Cell numbers are not publicly available in phone books and other databases in the way that most landlines are. This can make finding the cell number of someone that you need to contact an impossible task. However, if you use an Alltel phone this may soon be much more possible with the Alltel phone book.
If you try to find a cell phone directory online, you will find numerous websites that offer supposedly "free" services. You will soon find out that there are no such thing as truly free cell directories. Cell numbers are kept quite private for several reasons, the largest being government regulations. Cell service providers can not legally just list people's cell numbers in a public database. As more and more people do away with their old landlines in favor of using a cell as their only method of contact, this may change in the future. But, for the time being, you can not go simply go online and find someones cell number.
There are however, ways to find a person's cell phone number if you are willing to pay. Cell phone service providers keep individual's cell phone numbers in a database. These companies sell access to this database to other companies that compile the information in a massive phone book of sorts. You can access this "phone book" if you are willing to pay for it. This is the way that the Alltel phone book works. If you know that the person you are looking for uses an Alltel phone, then it would be much faster to search for the person's cell phone number using the Alltel phone book.
Again, this will not be something that can be done for free. Nonetheless, there are companies that will offer this service for as little as 99 cents for a one time search. Others will charge a subscription fee that will allow you to perform a certain number of searches or give you access to the database for a certain amount of time. So, searching for a person's cell phone number can be a difficult task, but it is not an impossible one.
