Use Phone Carrier Lookup to clean up and organize your lists by determining whether a phone number is a landline, cell, or VoIP. Then save time and money by reaching out via the proper channel.

Benefits of Using Phone Carrier Lookup to Find Service Provider by Phone Number

  • Provides Carrier Name

    Providing the carrier shows that you are familiar with the recipient. This reduces the chance of your message being handled as unsolicited.

  • Enhances SMS Routing

    Providing the phone carrier lookup information also helps text messaging servers. It allows them to determine most efficient delivery route for your message.

  • Identifies Phone Type

    Knowing if the number is a landline, cell, or VoIP allows you to reach the recipient through the right channel

  • Reduces Spam and Fraud

    Not all carriers are created equally. Identify carriers commonly associated with fraud and add additional check points.

How Accurate is Phone Carrier Lookup?

Our service provides the absolute latest information available. Carrier Lookup uses the exact same data the carriers use to identify mobile network from number and route traffic into and out of their system. Beware of phone carrier lookup services that only tell you the default carrier based on area code and exchange. Today phone numbers are moved from landlines to cell phones and from carrier to carrier on a regular basis. As a result if the data you are receiving is not real-time information you are out of date. Phone Carrier Lookup provides you with real-time data you can count on.
