Ported telephone numbers are those numbers originally assigned to a consumer by an operating company (e.g., ATT, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc.) and transferred to a different telephone carrier. To allow calling organizations to identify cell phones and comply with the 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 as their largest registered reseller, we distribute the ported data, enhancing it with the last date the number was ported.
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. It is delivered as a download from our website, picked up from our SFTP site, or for a fee Pushed daily to your local server.
