Another option is to try 411.com.  That used to be free.  Not sure if it still is.

I still google phone numbers as sometimes their businesses come up.

Just Google the number as a free and easy first step.

It is a good idea to Google your own phone numbers to check the results.

If the calls are coming in on your cell phone, try getting a caller ID app.

I google the number.  Then I add that number to a special heading in my phone so I know it is a salesman and not to answer it.

I usually just google the number.  If it's a business, it usually comes up, if it's a spam number, then sometimes other people have reported it.

Spokeo used to be good, then they started charging too.   I only Google the number.   Have not paid a 3rd party for this service.

I always do google, but I never get a first and last name, and town the call comes from.  And google spews a hundred pay sites to get more info on that number.

Put the phone number in Google, most of the time it is some type of weird, as people are good enough to report this.

Yes, I generally put those numbers into google.  Often, if they are spam callers, that will come up from one of the free sites where people can leave comments.
