How to Use the Phone Number Validation Tool
With our phone verification tool, you can validate phone numbers as they are collected from different channels. In addition to validating phone numbers, you can also identify whether the number is a landline or mobile, to assist ensuring compliance with regulators. Here’s how you can use our phone validator tool:
- Step #1: Enter the number you wish to validate and select the country of provenance. Click on the “Validate Number” button to instantly validate the phone number.
- Step #2: The ‘Main Info’ section displays information about the number’s country, type and the carrier. From the ‘Format’ section, you can view E164, RFC3966, International and National details.
- Step #3: If you want to validate another phone number, simply click the “Reset” button or refresh the page. If the phone number is valid, you will have the option to send a text message to it. In order to do that though, you need a TextMagic account.

Why is phone number validation important?
Did you know that 91% of organizations suffer from data errors and 77% believe that their bottom line is affected by invalid contact information?
Phone number verification can help you avoid unnecessary costs and wasted effort. It saves time by early on checking for invalid phone numbers. This is the best time to discover invalid phone numbers in your database, rather than during the course of sales efforts, customer service or branding or marketing activities. Invalid phone numbers should be removed from your database as they are collected and identified.
What is the difference between phone look-up and phone validation?
Phone number look-up refers to the process of extracting personal information, such as the name of a person. On the other hand, phone validation will tell you if the phone number attached to that record exists or is fake. Phone number validation will also give you details about the type of number (landline or mobile), the carrier and GEO location.
Does phone validation work for personal and business numbers?
Yes, the phone verification tool checks both personal and business numbers.
How does phone number validation work?
The phone validator doesn’t only check the format of the number, it performs a live ‘ping’ to that number to see if it is actually live and to check whether it can receive texts or calls. Importantly, you also don’t have to worry about the owner of the mobile device receiving any SMS or notification – they will not be aware of your phone verification attempts.
