Consider this Area Code Finder 101.
Actually its really simple to find telephone area codes with the help of an area code look up service or area code locator.
This is a website called an area code directory that is designed specifically to help people like you and me find the area codes we need.
Usually we need to find area codes to do reverse phone number lookups.
I just did one last week when I kept getting calls in the middle of the night...
that's right, prank callers.
For what ever reason, these jerks decided to call me in the middle of the night and hang up.
If I had to guess, I would have guessed that it was some Jr High or even High School kids that just had nothing better to do.
But since I was able to do a reverse phone lookup, I got their name, address and cell phone number and I reported them to the police for harassment.
And yes, they were Jr High School kids.
Has this ever happened to you? Either way, I know I feel a lot safer because I am "In the know".
What I mean is, I am not left in the dark wondering who is on the other line.
My family is a lot safer too because we can easily find someone who has decided to threaten us, scare us, prank call us or just bother us by calling.
An annoying caller is another thing.
One simple thing you can do to protect your family, is know who is on the other end of the telephone.
Ok, maybe its not a guard dog at your front door but it sure does help to know.
