Is there a free service online that will tell you to whom a cell phone number belongs?

Here's my story. Some jerk left me a rude, drunken voicemail message on my work phone in the middle of the night. Based on what they said, it is apparent that they know both my spouse and I. The systems people at my place of employment were able to find the number that this person called from, but, when I tried to look it up using Google, the owner's information wasn't available,other than it is a cellphone number. I know that there are services out there that will tell you this information for a price, but, frankly, I am not comfortable giving them my credit card information as I don't know how legitimate these companies are! We did try calling the number, but all we got was an automated voicemail service and it didn't indicate a person's name or anything. I do not want to keep trying to call this number unless I know who I'm calling. I want to confront this person, whoever they are, but I want to know who I'm confronting when I do! At this point I don't want to involve the police as it has been only one call and they didn't make any threats. Can anyone help me with this?
