Mississippi

Mississippi has been a US state since 1817, although it did secede in 1861 before rejoining in 1870. Today, the Hospitality State is the second-largest gambling state in the US, but it is also the cradle of historical civil rights movements. The nearly 3 million residents of Mississippi have phone numbers for personal and business purposes. However, scams and unsolicited telemarketing calls are commonplace. Regarding the latter, listing your number on the DoNotCall registry is a good solution. A better solution for both is to use a reverse phone search to look up the caller’s information on the Mississippi phone numbers database.

Initially, phone numbers databases were called white pages—large books containing the names, addresses, and phone numbers of people and businesses in a small town or city block. Residents could get a personal copy or use a public white page. However, these books did not always contain recent listings, and public white pages were often trashed or defaced. Moving phone number listings online helped broaden public access to accurate information. 

Information obtained through a reverse phone lookup on the Mississippi phone numbers database is largely accurate because phone numbers are always unique to their registered owners. 

Take the typical Mississippi phone number, 601-NXX-XXXX, for example. The first set of digits, 601, is the area code representing the caller’s general location. The next set of digits, NXX, is the prefix code, which specifies the particular street where the phone number owner resides. Finally, the last set of digits, XXXX, is the line number. It is unique to a specific owner. So, if a Mississippi phone number were to be a house address, the line number would be a specific flat number or house number. 

Phone numbers in Mississippi can share the same area code and prefix code. However, a line number is always unique to a specific person or business. No two individuals can have the same line number—although you may find out that several persons have owned the same number in the past. A reverse phone lookup will turn up the names and addresses of these persons.
