Performing a Number Lookup provides a direct network level check against any GSM mobile number. The check can provide detailed information, such as the original network a mobile number was assigned, whether the number has been ported to a different network, which ported network it has moved to, if the mobile has been turned on recently and the country the mobile was last used.
Mobile subscribers often change numbers, roaming or change providers while retaining their original phone number (ported numbers). Knowing which mobile numbers are in use and available, or which network your client is currently using, can greatly improve accuracy and cost effectiveness for many types of businesses.
- which numbers are currently active
- if the mobile number is in roaming state
- if the mobile number is ported to another mobile operator
- the optimal route for messages and voice
