PhoneDetective Review.

Out of all of the reverse phone lookup services there are, we at momovan have not found a single one worth writing a review about until now… Meet,

Upon first glimpse you’re taken to a simple, no BS page that needs a phone number, what better to enter the number you’re trying to search. It then prompts you with simple information about this person, then asking if you’d like to continue to find out more; and we can say it’s worth it. While not only being overflown with information, all of it was LEGITIMATE. I started telling everyone that knew about Momovan to hop on this and get what they need.

PhoneDetective is the source we’ve deemed extremely useful, and will continue to say that until we find a better one.

Tracing An Unknown Caller

Tracking down the identity of an unknown caller is not as hard as you might think. Although you could find out the information you want for free, a lot of your success will depend on luck. It is far easier to get a membership at a private reverse cell phone directory because you are guaranteed to get what you want — owner details, like name, address and wireless service carrier.

People need to lookup phone number details for a variety of reasons. Whether you are concerned about the kids your teenager has been hanging out with, or need to stop a very annoying prank caller, or even need to stop a harassing stalker, conducting a reverse cell phone trace is a very legitimate means of investigating a questionable person — especially if you suspect your significant other may be cheating on you.

But again, in order to find out an unknown person’s identity for free, you’re going to have to be lucky. The only way you can find his or her private information is if they have willingly put it up on the Internet. That way, you can find it by doing a search with their phone number on the major search engines, like Google, Yahoo and MSN. Otherwise, your only option is to make a small investment with a real cell phone database that allows you to conduct reverse lookups on virtually any phone number.

The reason that you can’t find cell phone details online for free is because of the transitory nature of a cell phone number’s life span. People are always changing cell numbers, and as a result they are just too difficult to track on a consistent basis (for free). Maintaining an accurate and up-to-date cell phone database is simply too difficult and costs too much money for it to be available online for free. People are also worried about having their phone numbers out in the open for telemarketers to exploit, so the government has made it very difficult for people to uncover cell phone number details.

But don’t worry, accurate and current reverse cell phone number lookup directories do exist and are very affordable. The best ones will allow you to purchase a lifetime membership for unlimited searches, or, if you don’t feel the need for unlimited access, you can make a smaller investment for just one lookup. They will allow you to do a free preliminary search to see if the information you are seeking is available in their database, at which point you can decide whether or not you want to get it.

Reverse Cell Phone Lookup: Doing it the Easy Way

There are many people who would not like to pick up a phone call from anonymous callers. The good thing for them is that there are a number of websites which offer reverse phone lookup services.

All you can do is type in the phone number and you will receive some details which include the home addresss, name of the owner and any additional phone numbers if they are there.

Reverse phone lookup is the best way to go when looking for the identity of someone without having to call them.

The process is very simple but it comes at a cost. The monthly membership can be as high as $40.This may not be very ideal for someone who would like to figure out who the owner of one number is.

However,those people who receive frequent calls from different unknown numbers may benefit from the service .

Online reverse phone lookup services are very reliable and have registered very high success rates. They have very wide information to offer about certain mysterious callers.

You will notice that regardless of the number which you input, you will get the name of the person and other extensive details.

However,there are those people whose names have been blocked from the system and so there will be no visible results for such numbers which are very few.

The best way you can find the identities of anonymous callers is to use the

" target="_blank">reverse phone lookup services. Through knowing who the phone number owner is, you can be at a position to make the best decision regarding whether or not to pick such calls.

Knowing the identity of the callers will help a great deal. You will be at a position to stay knowing the identity of all the mysterious callers who call you.

Mobile Monday Boston Recap- Innovating Healthcare with Consumer Technology

This month’s Mobile Monday Boston’s Mobile Healthcare event recap post was written by guest blogger Ashley Osgood.

As a B2B marketer in the Boston-based Skyhook Wireless, I had the opportunity to attend this past Mobile Monday Boston, which highlighted the rapidly maturing mobile healthcare technology industry. Speakers from AthenaHealth, American Well, Fitbit, Quanttus and QMedicHealth all shared their perspectives on mobile health and the benefits of an always on, always available health care ecosystem. The two prominent themes throughout the evening centered around wearable technology for continuous fitness and health monitoring as well as convenient, readily available health care from any location with telehealth – here are some highlights:

1) Wearable technology offers always on fitness and health monitoring

Will Crawford, Head of the Boston Office for Fitbit began the wearables discussion, commenting that wearable technology offers actionable data which customers can use to make better health decisions. In a mobile world where we are in control of gathering our own health data via wearable technology and fitness trackers, we now have the ability to interpret our own data in order to change our behavior for a healthier lifestyle. Consumers are no longer as passive as they once were: they want to manage their health and have an active role in their wellness.

   

Scott Mackie of Quanttus added to the discussion by sharing how sensing technology allows us to gather truly continuous data when technology is something you can wear all the time. This continuous data gives us context on what we are doing that might be affecting our blood pressure, for example. This technology takes us to a new frontier, because nobody knows what data on continuous blood pressure can tell us. “We need to extract meaning from this data and turn it into something useful,” says Mackie. “Insight into continuous health data enables prevention and inspires proactivity.” So far, Quanttus has made two medical diagnoses from the data their sensing technology has gathered, although these discoveries were not revealed at this time.

     

Sombit Mishra of QMedicHealth also commented on wearables, pointing out that their technology can continuously monitor behavior in the home and can send real-time alerts to caregivers when problems or unnatural behavior is detected. QMedic is the only medical alert solution that alerts when a user is not wearing the device, fails to get out of bed, or is out of the home. This always-on monitoring functionality enables peace of mind for loved ones who can’t be there all the time but who want to monitor how grandma is doing.

2) Telehealth for readily available, convenient health care from any location

Mary Modahl of American Well then spoke about telehealth, beginning the discussion by explaining that healthcare is shifting due to an increase in access to insurance. This shift has created more demand for doctors than there is supply. One idea behind mobile health is to create a convenient and easy way for health care to be available, and for doctors to manage their patients.

Chip Ach of AthenaHealth also commented on how important it is to get to a health care system that is centered around convenience and optimized around accessibility in order to increase patient satisfaction. He spoke about the vision he has to provide a solution to the gap between provider needs and company solutions. In order to do so, they needed to build the right relationship, which consists of a trial and error process that he compares to dating.

   

Takeaway

Mobile Monday this month brought to light one of the notoriously slowest-to-adopt-technology industry, healthcare – yet it’s essential for the existing provider processes to keep up in such a rapidly growing and tech-savvy population. Thankfully, new mobile technology and innovation being conducted by the above companies is leading to the development of new opportunities for convenient health care. Enhanced device functionality layered with context enables patients to better control their own fitness and health data.
