How does phone number validation work, are the numbers checked against a database?

Our phone validation service goes beyond checking the format of a phone number, it does a live ‘ping’ to the number to see if it really exists and can receive calls or texts. Use our online demo to see all the other types of information that are returned in the results. Please note that if the SIM card is not inserted or the phone is not switched on, your call or text messages will still be unanswered even though the number exists.
