    Another way of locating a Texas company is to contact the PUC and ask for a
    copy of the ADAD permit (888-782-8477). That should list a physical address
    and telephone numbers used.

    Phone numbers for 900 carriers need to be updated. The list posted at
      the national Numbering plan are old and some do not apply any more.
      Current number for MCI is 800 888 1800 and ask for the 900 department.
      Current number for AT&T is 800 323 6672 direct to the department.

    I just learned about Verizon's Call 54 service.  If you want to know who
     owns a number, you call the area code of the number and then 555-5454.  It
     is an automated system, and I was told it now costs 95 cents a call. Unless
     the number is unlisted, you should get the information. I was calling about
     what appears to be a cell phone number, so apparently it may work for those
     as well.
