What is it?
An HLR consultation or HLR Lookup checks the status of a mobile phone and provides information on whether the mobile phone number is valid and currently in use. It also provides information on data such as the operator and network that the number belongs to.
The HLR Check is essential for ensuring that your database of mobile phone numbers is always up to date. The service allows you to remove invalid phone numbers from your database, increase the effectiveness of an SMS campaign and reduce its cost.
How does it work?
All you need is an account with LabsMobile. Then you'll be able to open the WebSMS application with your username and password.

You can also use the HLR Check service from your software or application, integrating this function via our API. More information about our API.
How much does it cost?
