Part 1: Tracking a Cell Phone by Number With Spyic

One of the monitoring tools that can help you trace your phone is Spyic. Being a global monitoring tool, millions of customers have known it to track the SIM card location.

In Android, you need to install it once on the phone you want to track. It works with all Android versions from 4.0 onwards. In iOS, you don't need any installation. You can set up an account online and start tracking with the iCloud credentials only.

For iOS devices, Spyic works with OS versions from 7.0 and above.

In both Android and iOS, Spyic operates in stealth (hidden) mode. You can access the data remotely after the set up via a web-based control panel. It's fully compatible with all browsers and easy to use.

  • Finish up the installation and make sure to select stealth mode to hide Spyic's icon.

Part 3: Using Spydialer Reverse Phone Lookup Tool

The last method you can utilize to trace a phone number is the Spydialer web-based service. It's reverse phone lookup tool that you can search for more than just the phone number.

While it doesn't show the phone's location, it can reveal more records about the number. All you have to do is go to the main website, input the phone number and hit SEARCH. Spydialer has millions of reports about people from public sources.

It will, therefore, show everything else related to the number. That may include the email address, physical address, criminal records, social media information and more. The only disadvantage here is getting the wrong information about the person.

As for Spydialer, they only acquire what you see, which means they are not responsible for generating the reports. Therefore, if you get the wrong information, it's because it was entered that way from the source.

Apart from showing you more information, it can also do a reverse dial on the number to see if it's working. The owner, on the other end, will receive a call from a dummy number. It will then notify him via a voicemail that they have just been spy dialled.

You can also use it to search people's names or places, physical addresses or emails. It's free of charge, and you don't have to be a member to search. Without an account, you can search up to 10 records in a day.


It's easy to track someone's cell phone by number whether you know it or not. Our solutions above are competent at their tracking job even when the owner changes the phone number.
