Check the status and availability of a mobile number and avoid unnecessary sendings.

What is HLR lookup mobile number validation??

The HLR validation (Home Location Register or also called Lookup) verifies the status and availability of a mobile number, determining its validity and current usage. It also provides information about the operator and network associated with the mobile number and its format.

It is an essential tool for keeping cell phone databases up to date, discarding invalid numbers and allowing users who have changed their contact number to update their data.

The HLR service improves the effectiveness of any SMS sending or campaign and reduces sending to invalid numbers and their cost.

How does the HLR mobile number validation work?

LabsMobile and its partners have updated databases and direct connection with telephone operators to know if a number is in use and which operator or telephone network it corresponds to.

This service is available in more than 200 countries with full accuracy and guarantee. However, there are different types of coverage and levels of service, ask us about your specific case.

Through an HLR query or validation the following results can be obtained:

  • If the format of a number is correct obtaining the country and type of number (mobile, landline, tollfree, etc.).
  • The operator or mobile network to which the number is currently subscribed and whether it has been ported since it was contracted.
  • The current status or availability of the number (active, absent, inactive, error, etc.). That is, if an SMS would be delivered instantly or if it would generate a delivery error.

This service is available in our Web application and also integrating with our API. See the HLR API documentation to learn how to integrate and automate this service.
