    Amber Alerts changing

    I used to use the Amber Alerts web page to determine what carrier a phone number belonged to.
    On Dec 31 this service is changing.
    Does anyone know a similar webpage where a phone number can be entered and the carrier displayed?
    Thanks.

    tnid.us was great until a couple months ago, when they decided to paywall current carrier data. They still show original carrier info and current CNAM data though.

    I just found Retro Sleuth which has been accurate for the numbers I've tried so far, including some that have been through multiple ports, but I don't know anything about this company.

    Thank you GaryST, mobile carriers are showing correctly, including my line ported 3 weeks ago, and my Google Voice and Skype-In numbers are shown as VoIP phones.

    Does not work correctly. says my phone is T-Mobile and I am really Verizon.

    I just use google voice. Click on your GV from http://www.google.com/voice number like you are adding a phone, beside the phone numbers already in GV it says the carrier (though not specifically "PagePlus" rather Verizon, or AT&T not StraightTalk, for example). If you port your number from X to Y make sure you remove and re-add your phone number when the port is totally complete, or it could give bad info.
