FAQs

Q How much does it cost?

All accounts will get this information returned for free included with HLR Lookups/ Landline Validation and Email Validation.

If you want to run just a syntax check on its own, this is currently limited to 10 lookups per day IP address making the request. If you want to make more requests please contact sales at sales@datasoap.co.uk or 0207 856 0422.

Q Will this service tell me if a phone number is live and callable?

This service will run multiple proprietary checks to see if the number is potentially valid filtering out known invalid numbers. If you want to find out if a number is live and callable you can augment the validation process by including a Mobile Validation (HLR Lookup) or Landline Validation check.
