Hi. Does anyone know how to check a cell phone number to see if it is still valid? I'm looking for an old acquaintance. Just rings or sometimes "subscriber not answering call later".
If you seek to be offended by everyone you meet, then you'll succeed.

Well, it's clearly still valid.

It would not ring or give you a msg that the number was not active or a long tone, depending on which country.

You know the phone works because it rings, so send an sms to introduce yourself. If the person is interested in communicating (which seems doubtful) then they can respond to you.
