Most of the people you know are not going to leave the country, but some do. Some of your female friends are going to change their last name when they marry, but some will not. Others have common names and get easily lost in the crowd. Some that we work with move on to other companies and we lose touch due to competition issues. All of these things can make searching for a cell number of an old friend, classmate, or colleague harder, but PeekYou is a site that hopes to change that for you.
A PeekYou profile is a place where people can go and put up links to their various online sites and resources. This means they may add links to their photos, profiles on social and professional networking sites, blogs, and any other things that are all about them. Most that do this want to be found by old friends and classmates, so they do this to make it very easy for them. At times, people can contribute things about people they know as well.
When you first go to PeekYou, you will find a name search that is much like the same search you see on other sites. You can try this first, but be as sure of the spelling as you can be. If you are not sure, try each variation that comes to mind before giving up. Keep in mind that PeekYou first searches through the profiles on their site, but then gives you the option to search other sources, with Google being one of them.
If you get a PeekYou match, you may find that someone has listed phone numbers, including cell numbers, or that they have left other contact information. You may also find mention of them on a different profile. If you do not get a match, or too many, you can search other ways. You can search by a different country, which is something other searches can not do, or you can even search by last known place of employment or school. Those can both be immensely useful.
What can be a problem with finding a cell number though PeekYou, or any other source for that matter, is that you may get a number, but you are not clear if it is the right person. When that happens, and you need verification before dialing, go to a reverse phone search to see what happens when you search a phone number for more information.
