Cardboardfish Vs Data Soap

CardBoardFish HLR (Mobile Validation) Lookup vs Data Soap HLR Lookup

CardBoardFish are a communications company specialized in delivering SMS services.


CardBoardFish’s HLR (Mobile Validation) Lookup

Among the products CardBoardFish offer, is HLR (Mobile Validation) Lookup. The service involves the standard features the customer can expect from a HLR Check. It identifies dead and invalid numbers, the current mobile network to which the number is connected, information on whether the number has been switched off for a long time and if the device has been switched ON or OFF at the time of the verification.

CardBoardFish, just like Data Soap, use API integration which allows the users to install the interface to their own website, so they can check in real-time the status of the numbers on their databases.

Both providers can validate UK and international numbers alike.

Pricing options

Neither CardBoardFish, nor Data Soap have any setup fees. CardBoardFish charge £0.008 per lookup (excl. VAT). To put this into perspective, if there were 10 000 numbers for validation, you would be expected to pay £80. Volume discount is available with CardBoardFish only if the client requirements exceed 50 000 numbers per month.

What is more, there is no free credits available with CardBoardFish. Data Soap, on the other hand, offer 100 free credits to new users so they can be reassured in the usability of our product.

Data Soap pricing is flexible. We are happy to hear what your requirements are and we will make up a unique package for you trying to beat our competitors’ offers.
