Hi,

I'm desperately trying to get in contact with an old friend of mine who phoned me up a couple of weeks ago, but now I can't find his number.
Tried facebook etc, no joy.
Is there a way I can get his number from when he phoned me??

I know it's not bushcraft stuff, but you guys are all so knowledgeable.

Thanks for any help,
Kind regards,

Paul.

Only if no-one else has called you since then. 1471 would work in that case.

You can track outgoing calls but not incoming unfortunately. Of course, as always, I'd be very happy to be re-educated and find that it is possible.

Your telephone service provider will have every call on record that you made and received but whether they'll tell you is a different matter.

Have you tried good old directory enquiries ?

And of course, the government spooks are watching everyone's calls.

Just send an email (to anyone) with "Kennedy assassination" in the subject line to get their attention.......

Thanks for the help everyone.

Sadly the call was a couple of weets ago, so no 1471 there.
I bet the government can tell he phone, but they're not going to tell me his number, dohh.

How can directory enquires help?

Unfortunately directory enquires won't be able to help with out an address. Your service provider can't give out number either as their hands are tied by the data protection act. Your best chance is to try friends, friends of friends or try googling your friends name, I managed to track down and get in contact with a mate I hadn't saw in 10 years by looking for anything with his name in it and eventually finding a email.. It's very time consuming though.

Depends how much info you have already.

Do you know the town where he lives, or the type of work he does?

Things to try:

- type the name into google uk using quote marks... if he has a distinctive name this might help (e.g. "brian bumcheese"). Add any other details you have (e.g. "brian bumcheese" oxford neurobiology)

- try 192.com, which uses several sources of info incl. electoral roll and companies house. If he owns a property or is director of a business you may be able to get more details (small cost though)

- try Friends Reunited... a lot more people signed up for this than facebook, as it was the first one to hit the mainstream

there are various ''people finder'' sites on the net, 192.com and online public records to name two, never used them myself so don't know if a fee is payable, might be worth a google on people finder to see.

Thanks for the help, sadly I can't remember his last name, and can't get in contact with friend of his either.
