  • Amy got a new phone, but a few contacts transferred over without a name, so she keeps getting “unknown caller” or "possibly Sally Sue" when these friends call. She used the reverse phone look-up to clean up her contacts.
  • Other reasons people use AnswerLady to look-up a phone number include: Looking up an old phone number to find someone's current contact information.
