Interactive Marketing Solutions. Call us for the most extensive ported numbers file in the industry. Updated daily so you can call the right number every time.">
Ported telephone numbers are those numbers originally assigned to a consumer by one telephone carrier and then transferred to a different telephone carrier (e.g., AT&T to T-Mobile, or Verizon to AT&T, etc.).
To allow calling organizations to identify wireless telephones and comply with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the industry makes the ports from Landline-to-Wireless carriers and Wireless-to-Landline carriers available for distribution. iConectiv is the custodian of all the ported telephone numbers for North America and Interactive Marketing Solutions (IMS) is their largest registered reseller. We distribute the ported data enhancing it with the last date the number was ported. As an option, we also provide a history of ported numbers dating back to 2005 that, when used with the Wireless Block Identifier® Audit files, can determine if a number was wireless or landline on the date previously called.
Ported numbers are updated daily and are a complete replacement of previous updates, precluding the need to pick up the files every day. Each download contains all the ported data available to-date. Our Wireless – Ported Numbers file can be delivered as a download from our website, picked up from our SFTP site or pushed daily, for a fee, to your local server.
The two ported files will be combined into one zip file. The use and format of each file is listed below:
· The Landline-To-Wireless file must be used in your wireless identification process to further identify and suppress wireless records from your calling files. Each record contains the 10-digit telephone number that appears to belong to a wired landline but is currently assigned to a wireless telephone.
· The Wireless-To-Landline file may be used to reinstate records previously identified as wireless and suppressed accordingly. Each record contains the 10-digit telephone number that appears to belong to a wireless telephone but is currently assigned to a wired landline.
The Ported Numbers file will be available for download after agreeing to our standard terms and conditions which includes the following listed below:
