Benefits of Using The Carrier Lookup Service

Text messaging has a huge reach, which means you can reach a wider audience than with other channels.

Reduce Messaging Costs

With a business phone number lookup tool, you can ensure you send your messages only to existing and relevant contacts only, thus you will save both time and money.

Remove Invalid Numbers

Moreover, you can easily check if a number is valid or not, to avoid wasting time on invalid numbers, which further, can be easily removed from your contact list.

Export Your Lookup Results

After your bulk lookup has been completed, you can easily export the results to an Excel file or as CSV for further research and analysis of the received data.

Import Only Valid Numbers

Once you have checked your numbers with the carrier lookup, you can choose to import only the valid numbers directly to TextMagic and to send them a text message.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in a TextMagic free trial?

You will have full access to all features during your TextMagic free trial. No credit card details are required.

We provide you with 0.4 credit (and a dedicated number only in the USA and Canada for one month FREE). You can test the service for a maximum 30 days.

You can test sending SMS globally, as long as you have credit left.

What makes the paid phone number lookup tool better than the free one?

Both carrier lookup tools can be used to determine if the number you are trying to reach is valid; however, the paid version offers some essential bonus features:

    • Access to more information, such as the carrier name, mobile country code, mobile network code, and phone type; whereas the free plan only displays the time zone, format, and country.
    • Ability to add numbers to your contact list easily or to send an SMS from the dashboard.
How can I integrate the TextMagic API to validate phone numbers?

Get instant carrier validation and more details about a phone number by integrating our carrier lookup tool into your software. Please read our documentation to see how exactly you can use our API for phone carrier lookup.

Where do you pull your data from?

TextMagic uses two databases to validate phone numbers: one dedicated to landline numbers, with corresponding data, and one for mobile numbers. You can verify numbers in any of the countries that we cover. For more details about our global coverage, check our coverage page.

Will phone number owners know I used the carrier lookup tool?

No, don’t worry. Our phone provider lookup tool uses the database to provide valid information, but phone owners will not be notified of your search.

How can I use the cell phone validator tool?

Here is the step-by-step guide to using our cell phone lookup tool:

  • Log in to your TextMagic account or sign up for a free trial.
  • Navigate to Lookup -> Carrier Lookup.
  • Here, you can perform two types of phone carrier validations:
    • Single lookup: paste your phone number and the country. Click “check carrier” to pull out the data. All information requested is saved in the “History” tab.
    • Bulk lookup: Click on “new carrier lookup.” Copy and paste numbers manually or import Excel files instantly and click “Continue.” Select “all of my numbers are from the same country” if you know the country or “my numbers are from multiple countries” if you don’t. Click “Continue” again. TextMagic will provide a CSV file with all your data. Wait for the data to be retrieved.
