I remember awhile back there was link to a site on here that contained this information. It also showed where the hubs were for these numbers.

thanks.

I types my mothers phone # into slots, and it says she has "Omnipoint Communications Enterprises, L.p." when she has T-mobile, are they the same company?

Also now with the number portability, I don't think the program will be that accurate any more.

thanks for this link, but this not the one I am referring to it had lot more information. you were able to enter the whole phone number and it would give the physical address of the hub and so forth.

I think T-mo acquired Omnipoint a good number of years ago. I haven't really heard mentioned of Omnipoint since around '99ish.

This is the one that I remember. I dont remember there being one that gave more info than this one, unless you want to pay a premium price.

I would say fone finder is partially accurate in that it only mentions who initially had the rights to the number. I put in my area code and the first 3 digits of my home number and it told me Verizon. I haven't been with Bell Atlantic now Verizon in years. But the fact remains when I first got that number that was the company that assigned it to me. So the data is old but was accurate at some point in time just not now.

That's awesome. The site misspells Albuquerque first off, then lists my Sprint PCS phone as Level 3 Communications LLC
