Unknown caĺler/texter. ..

I have a number calling and texting me phone and won't reveal who they are. I've tried reverse number lookup and all that gives me is the carrier. Is there a way to find out the name of the person?

Hi Aaron, we can't provide such information, as the real owner of this phone number might not even be calling you (a practice called "spoofing", see this link: http://koo.do/1JfnBQJ). There is not much that can be done. In case of harassment, you should contact your local police and file a complaint. You could also change your phone number. If you are a Koodo customer, you can easily change it online via Self Serve, free of charge. Thank you!

You could also call the number from a pay phone and see if you are redirected to a voice mail  service that identifies the owner.

If the number is not a local area code, I recommend googling the number.  If it's a spammer, it'll often show up.
