Validation, Verification, Active, Valid - This is Getting Confusing
Selecting a provider for phone number validation can be confusing because many services use the terms valid, active, and connected interchangeably. This can make it hard to compare apples to apples when looking for a phone validator.
See the definitions and handy dandy chart below to help you determine the best validation service for your needs:
Connected / Disconnected - The number belongs to someone and is in service / The number is out of service.
RealPhoneValidation’s Phone Number Validator is the industry’s most accurate phone validation service. Using telco data RPV Turbo makes up to 4 inquiries to provide true connected/disconnected dispositions.
Active / Inactive - The number has been assigned to a phone carrier (does not mean the carrier has assigned to a person) / The number has not been assigned to a carrier.
Valid / Invalid - The number complies with the North American Number Plan Association (NANPA) / The number is not compliant with NANPA
Phone Number Verification - The most common type of phone number verification is to send a code via a call with a recording or text message which they would entered into a form before continuing.
