Will Koodo give the name of the owner of a number... or even help trace it if it's causing a disturbance in your life?

No you need a court order to obtain info like this. what kind of phone do you have? some you can block specific #s from texting & /or calling your phone.

I was just curious bc I heard that some phone companies will actually give you a name. I have blocked the number, but I really wanted to know who it was.

I don't think any phone company will because it's against the law & that's why you need a court order to be given that info.

Even with a court order, it's not you who will end up with the information, but the authorities, who will then investigate. There is sadly no way for you to know "who", the only power you have is to make it stop through authorities, but you won't get any information from them.

No company would give you that information without a court order as it could cause unwanted legal problems for them that could literally cost them money and like TopperCNC said, you wouldn't personally be given that information

Another idea is to try changing your phone #? It would suck making sure all the people you want to stay in contact with have your new one but at least it will stop whoever's harassing you.
