This is fast becoming a universal question because unless someone tells you their cell phone number there is really no easy way to look it up. The "Yellow Pages" are full of residential and business numbers but there is no cell phone book. Even the online versions of these phone books are completely lacking in cellular phone numbers.
So when you ask, "how can I lookup someone's cell phone number" you are not alone. It's almost to the point that when you meet someone, whether it be for business or a possible someone you would like to get to know better, you should ask for their cell phone number before you get their name. Maybe that's a little drastic but trying to find someone's cell number can be a bit on the frustrating side.
But first there are two ways you can try and find a number without paying for it. The first is to simply use one of the big internet search engines and do a search for the name of the person whose phone number you wish to find. In other words "Google" them. While this method does not have the highest percentage of success you never know what personal information someone has left in the open on the internet. If they've placed a classified ad of some sort or been involved in an auction they may have listed their cell number for all to see.
There are free cell phone number directories that are starting to show up around the internet. These are being created on a volunteer type basis. If you wish to use one you have to leave some personal information including your name and cell number in their database. In exchange for this information you then get access to their database of names and numbers. You stand a better chance using this method then just doing a search on a name but these sites are still relatively new and do not have very large data bases.
The third option will cost you a nominal fee but it will give unlimited searches for as long as you want. The cell phone providers do provide their name and number databases to these cell phone registry websites for a price. This cost is passed on to their members but with access to hundreds of millions cell phone numbers you stand a very good chance of finding the number you are looking for.
