How can I determine which provider is behind a certain cell phone number?


You could just call that number and ask the owner. Or you could listen to the voice mail announcement and compare it to those that you know.

Or you could use this web site and try a reverse search.
That site will tell you that they did not find a (people) listing for your phone number but they will tell you something like the text below (better than nothing)

I found today this site:
I ran it on my own cell phone number and I really liked their (accurate) output.

The phone number "(xxx) xxx-xxxx" is a Salinas, CA 
based phone number and the registered carrier is Cellco Partnership
Dba Verizon Wireless - Ca.
However, due to number portability, some numbers have been transferred to
a new service provider other than the registered carrier.

My company, Vocalogic, offers an API for looking up the carrier for wireless phone numbers. It also returns the email addresses to send SMS and MMS messages to the phone.

This website did correctly pull up one of the 3 numbers I entered. Mine and my husband's pulled up incorrectly because we ported our numbers from one carrier to a different carrier. The website pulled up our old carrier. (the change in carrier happened several years ago)

There is a scammer working from Obuasi Ghana she goes by the name of Suzzie Williams and with an alias of Anita.Antw26. Its the same old patter for a weeek or two then Mum is Ill or I have lost my job, I have to leave my house as i am in arrears and my landlord want's the
or I need money for my phone or I cant talk to you anymore, If you can think of any thing they have done it they don't take no for an answer so one has to insult them or just block them on Skype and report them. what are we supposed to do if their own beutifull Country will not do any thing to stop them I is a disgrace to let this go on!
