HLR Look Up

Let your numbers be checked! Excellent way to validate and verify mobile numbers. HLR international phone lookup helps to enhance the accuracy and the effectiveness of mobile activities

Why should you check if a phone number is active?

Each database may contain incorrect information, duplicate contacts, erroneous operators data, so phone number validation is necessary. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the creators of texting lists often cannot be sure if a certain number belongs to a particular operator. As a result, messages cost much higher and the information simply doesn’t reach the addressee, but this can be avoided.

Manual sorting out of endless databases is a tricky task, especially when they contain millions of numbers. Therefore, it is worth using the HLR foreign phone number lookup, as well as getting MNP information  to make sure the database contains only up-to-date contacts. Cleaning the database before the start of messaging is a useful procedure that allows you to avoid errors and useless budget spending for sending SMS. Verify phone numbers with BSG!

Why should you check if a phone number is active?

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:

01

Cost saving. SMS are 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 charge if a number is served by another operator.

02

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.

03

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

How the HLR Lookup works?

HLR database

The HLR database contains all necessary information about which subscribers have access to mobile communications. It is updated every time the operator activates or deactivates a new number, so the mobile lookup feature allows you to find out these details. Numbers are stored in the database for as long as the subscriber's connection to the number is valid, so they can be studied and analyzed using special services. Having access to the database, our customers can get all information about a certain contact and exclude erroneous sending.

Contacts marked

Contacts marked as no longer used are deleted from the database. The check of numbers is performed in a non-invasive way, so their owners will not receive any notifications and will not experience interruptions in the operation of their phones. This provides a greta opportunity to clarify the activity status of a contact without disturbing a subscriber and find out the rest of the details of their services used. The modern and well thought out text message tester ensures timely and smooth delivery of messages. After all, the information the texting organizer has guarantees a good result, and the previously specified mobile number active status, which is checked using the unique service, plays an important part in this process.
