It is not a herculean task to find an address from a phone number unless the phone number is a fake. There are many facilities on the Internet or otherwise which can help you find the desired address.
The process of finding an address from a phone number is given here. Follow the steps provided to obtain the number that you are looking for.

Have the Complete Number

The first thing you would ideally want to do is to make sure that you have the complete number. This refers to a complete telephone number along with the area code. If it is a cell number, then the search might get a bit complicated, but a home phone is comparatively easier to trace. A complete number is half the battle won.

Look on the Internet

Searching on search engines is a good way to find out the person's address.
Type in the entire number along with the area code in the search bar. Hopefully, you will get what you are looking for. The results may give you the address and even the number of that person again.

Cell Number

This is in case the number is a cell phone number. To trace this number, what you can do is type it in and search. If the person possessing the number has it displayed anywhere on the internet, you are most likely to find it. If you do not find it there, you will probably require paid services of specific websites which are specially meant for this purpose.

Reverse Lookup

Just as in a directory you get the phone numbers and consequent addresses you might be looking for, there are reverse phone lookup directories where you can feed in the number and you get the address. People search sites can also prove useful in this regard, though some of them are not free of cost. This is one of the easiest methods.

Hire a Detective

If all the given methods have come to a naught, then a final resort if you are extremely desperate, is hiring the services of a private eye.

Cell Phone Service Provider

Another thing you can try your luck on is check out the service provider if it is a cell phone number. Once you can decipher the service provider, the going gets a bit easier. You can call up the customer care number of the respective company, tell them the number, and ask the executives to furnish you with the address details.
These were just a few basic guidelines to find out an address with just the phone number available. You can come up with an idea of your own and trace the address. If the number seems familiar, try to remember whose it is, ask your friends if they have seen it. Someone may just recognize it and even remember the name of that person.
