HLR Bot

Use a telegram bot to check the number on the HLR Database! Receive information about the current state of his client's mobile number faster than ever

What is an HLR Chatbot?

Check your customer’s number in your contact list via Telegram bot. Up to three at once!

You can find out the operator, activity, or roaming for a phone number from a potential lead’s business card. A simple and convenient service for managers to check potential buyers and partners. A marketer, salesperson, or account manager at a meeting can find out the status of any person’s number as needed.

Here are 3 reasons why you might overpay for your messaging:

  1. Non-existent numbers
  2. Roaming numbers
  3. Unknown statuses.

Such statuses are not always visible after SMS messaging. In order to send the message only to those customers who can see it, and not overpay, you need to do an HLR check of your database.

For an ordinary user who wants to create an effective texting list, it is extremely important to check that phone numbers from the database are active. This has a number of advantages:

  1. Cost-saving. SMS is sent only to those subscribers who are online and are able to read the message. Thus, the sender doesn’t overpay for inactive numbers and can also avoid increased charges if a number is served by another operator.

  2. Compilation of an up-to-date database. All results are saved, which means that next time you won’t have to check phone numbers before sending messages to them again.

  3. Delivery accuracy. Preliminary validation ensures that your messages are delivered to the right person.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is HLR Lookup?

HLR or Home Location Register is a centralized data system, which contains complete information about the subscribers of all GSM operators. HLR Lookup is widely used by SMS aggregators and mobile operators to improve the routing of SMS traffic, as well as to verify the validation of mobile numbers.

What is the HLR database?

The HLR register contains information about all GSM network subscribers. It updates automatically every time the mobile operator activates new numbers. These numbers are stored in the database until they are no longer used. When the system recognizes that phone numbers are no longer available, it removes them from the database. Checking phone number validation  with the HLR  database application is completely anonymous. Subscribers, whose numbers are verified by HLR Lookup, will not know about it.

What kind of results can I get?

By making an HLR request, you can see the results just in a few seconds. The speed of obtaining information depends, on the number of your launched traffic. It takes up to 10 minutes to check nearly 10,000 numbers and receive the result in csv format. Working with such format make it easier to work with data for you.
