    A friend of mine keeps getting prank calls/threats from the same cell phone number and wants to find out who it is without involving authorities. Is there any way to do this?

    Help is GREATLY appreciated!

    I think you can go to anywho.com and do a reverse search, that is, put in the number and get a name. however, i do not know if it works with cell phone numbers.

    Hey, John, if need be, let us know, we'll come down there and get silly if we gotta... We got bats and tools of that sort; we'll slap 'em around, beat 'em about the chest and neck, whatever's necessary... We pop wheelies, we don't stop at the tolls, we're good like that... You let us know.

    For what a rental will cost for a weekend will total the cost of a new 924! Oooo another one. Now it will catch fire. Ahhh I'll collect the 20 bucks from the insurance and move on!

    Remember, you might not be able to trace the number at all...

    Pre-paid cell phones bought with cash at WalMart will almost guarantee the phone won't get traced back to you. ;)

    Naturally, the last resort will be to post the number right here. I'm sure the FChatters would know what to do with it.

    Apparently the imbecile who is making these calls just called my friends house. The caller ID at his hom came up with "Payphone".

    So what we first thought was a cell phone number is actually a payphone. Probably right outside of New Orleans. So given that it is not someone's cell phone number I have NO PROBLEM whatsoever posting it here.

    If anyone can tell me the location of this phone that would be a huge help. I have a suspicion that the phone might be on the corner of Gause Blvd. and Pearl Street in Slidell, Louisiana.

    If I am right then this person just might be the biggest moron around. Anyways, here is the number:

    [size=+3] 985-781-7867 [/size]

    Release the hounds!!!

    So what are we supposed to do? Prank call a pay phone? Wait until someone picks up and then ask the location? If you think you know where it is why not go there and call the number on a cell phone?
