✔ Best Answer
About the best you can do is have Caller-ID (with a phone that displays incoming numbers) and just look at it on the phone. There's software that can do the same thing (you'd still need Caller-ID), but actually tracing a phone call would likely involve the phone company and local law-enforcement (at least in the U.S.)

... and in the UK as well so the same probably applies to most of Europe. Reverse look up of a phone number to find someone's address is specifically banned under the Telecommunications Act. You can get someone's phone number from the name and address, and even then you have to be quite specific, but no the other way round.

It is like getting the names of a particular IP address uses, you need a court order presented to the ISP/Phone Company to do it.
