Is there anyway to trace mobile numbers. I have had two numbers contract me recently asking "Who is dis". Then today I received a withheld call asking "who is dis", which I assume was from the same twarts.

not sure but I would like to know if this is possible too, however it is probably highly unlikely as the phone providers will not give that info to you. Although you can report it to them and I think you can ask the provider to block that number from contacting, little help really when they could just get another sim and keep doing it so me thinks no to your question sorry

Oh yea I forgot about that one, I used to get calls, sometimes ring once or twice (missed call) and at other times I could answer it but line goes dead immediatley. Once I called the number back and guess what, I paid for it at the end of the month. Never again

Funnilly when I looked at the number it just seemed like a normal mobile number but no its a premium number in disguise

I was getting them daily. Silent calls.

Googled the number and it was some advertising place, Milward Brown.

Apparently, if you rang it you got a recorded message telling you to phone another number.
