You have spotted it on your itemized bill, but no idea how to discover the person behind it. Read on to learn a handy trick for this type of situation.

Find out who called me

Spotlight > [Enter Number]

The fastest and easiest way to see if a caller, who left his number verbally on your voice box, or whose number appears on an itemized bill is among your contacts, is to search for him or her via Spotlight.

Go to your iPhone Home Screen and drag downwards to open the Spotlight search. Now enter the number you are trying to perform a Caller ID Lookup on. As you can see in the following screenshot, your iPhone will return the corresponding contact. Providing you have his number in your address book, of course.
