I've been trying to contact someone I used to know a few years ago, but I only have their phone number. Because it's been so long, I'm just wondering if they might have changed their phone number? Is there any way I can tell this?
Apart from, you know, just ringing the number because I don't really want to do that.

How can I tell if it's still their number or not?

You mean this is a girl you used to like and you don't want them to know its you when you check the number because if it is you want to be prepared?

Call the number, if it rings then its active if not then their phone may be switched off or no longer active

Haha no, I'm a girl. It's just an old mate. I just need to know if she still uses her old number.

Above, I don't really want to ring it! I hate calling people and she'll think it's a bit random if I just called her out of the blue!
I need to text her but how will I know if it's still her number ....!


Anyone else?

141+the number

Call that ... It masks the number

Don't say anything... is it a familiar voice?

Ring from a withheld number, put on an accent and say 'Hello is this blah blah? I'd just like a moment of your ti-' *hangs up*

Yes, I'm aware you said you didn't want to ring it. You know the only way to really find out is to just ring it.

Just do it.
