Is there any way of finding out who called you by using the number as a reference? i.e. a search engine on the net?

Just got a call from a UK landline starting with 01494 and I want to know who it is.

what you want is called a reverse directory search... it is legal, easy to obtain in the states, but for some reason it seemingly isnt here...

seeing as how the telephone directory is public, it surely isnt too much trouble for them to have a search function of all the listed numbers in it, but for some reason, no such service (that i know of) exists here... seeing as to how you can already find out the address and phone number of any person listed in the directory, surely it isnt too much to ask if we find out which number is connected to a person....

the only persons this protect is prank callers, i can see no other reason not to allow you to find out who owns a particular number (assuming that it is listed in the public directory)....
