How do I work out what carrier a mobile number is with?

I've noticed that all websites which allow you to send SMS' to phones in America ask you to supply the name of the mobile network that the recipient is on. If this was asked in the UK, no-one would have a clue (thankfully they don't need to know too). However, is there any way that you can work out/intelligently guess the carrier when you have only the American mobile phone number?
