In the past for 2.0.x and 2.1.x there were quite a few "reverse number lookup" patches, however these were all limited to 1 country.

This new patch only works on 2.2.x currently. It will do a number lookup for the following countries currently:

AT
BE
CH
DE
FR
NL

Based on the phone number you're dialing it will use Enyo to figure out what country you are dialing. Based on that parameter it will do the reverse lookup. So this will work with both international formats (+49-xx-xxxxxxx) and the local format 0xx-xxxxxxxx. It should even work when you're roaming. So when you're in France and you call a local French number without the +33 country code, it should recognize you are trying to call a French number and use the French reverse lookup website

The following sites are currently used:

AT: Gelbe Seiten, Telefonbuch und Routenplaner - HEROLD.at
BE: International - Infobel - Telephone Directories
CH: tel.search.ch
DE: mobil.dasoertliche.de
FR: Annuaire telephonique entreprise et professionnel
NL: TelefoonDetective.nl - Zoek op Telefoonnummer

If no site is available it will just try to Google your number

Other countries can be easily added, so if people have suggestions, I'm happy to incorporate them

This is really great. Tested it on Pre 2/3 and as well with my german local numbers also with foreign AT/FR numbers.
Thx alot to taking care of the patch for enyo and making it much better. A great feature that is not so common on other platforms.

Cool, I was longing for such a patch for quite some time. Will this eventually show up in Preware as a patch or will I have to install it manually?

Just submitted it. I'll look for making it Tweaks enabled so we can add AU, US as well and maybe multiple sites per country as well

Works perfectly thank you.

But maybe for the french website instead of 11800 you could use Annu.com it's searching among professional AND personal phone numbers and the interface is very basic which is a good thing on a phone screen.

if you post a link to simple to query mobilewebsite of canada for both international format (+1) and local format, chances are good, Herrie implements it

Hi there, I will try it, if you don't mind Herrie.

So far the URL
http://www.paginebianche.it/ricerca-...&qs=0668892513
seems to work fine.

I also will add a feature to this patch.
The option Google will be available all the time, also for numbers from AT, BE, CH, DE etc. Makes sense IMO, because numbers often have no reverse lookup entry but you can find them on google.

Here is an update (also the version number)

- US is include with m.whitepages.com
It doesn't work for the US, as a sessionid is requiered, but at least the mobile website is open and you just have to enter the number into the form.

- German localization included

You must supply a website for India (or any other country you like to be added) where it is possible to reverse lookup a number.

Nice would be also :
a test number from a company or so, which can be resolved by this site
the international dial prefix for you country and the geocode e.g.:
+49 and DE for Germany or
+31 and NL for the Netherlands
I think India has +91 or +92 and IN but I am not sure

I think I have some scripts from my Asterisk PBX that did CID lookup in the U.S. Let me dig that up and see if I can use it.

Why does nobody requesting new countrys is read this thread:

You need to supply a reverse lookup URL to a (mobile) site of you country where the patch should be directed to.

read the postings above, before requesting !!!
