Have you ever received a phone call from a number you didn’t recognize, and they didn’t leave a message?telephone

Not sure if you should call back or answer if they call again?

Use Google to find out who or where the number is calling from. Just type in the full phone number including the area code, and Google will display as much information as is available for that phone number.

If the phone number comes from an organization, or if it’s a publicly listed number, such as those in the phonebook, Google will be able to display that information.
