Number Validation uses as service called HLR to check the status of a single or many mobile numbers. Use the Number Validation tool to remove numbers that are no longer active in your database and save the cost of sending to them.


Number Validation costs just € 0.009 or R 0.09 per number lookup which can be cheaper than the cost of sending an SMS. Therefore message sending costs can be greatly reduced from an initial investment in validating the numbers in your database. Pricing discounts can be negotiated for high volume usage.

How it works

Sign-up for a Panacea Account, then log in and upload the batch of numbers you want to validate. You can also submit them using our HLR API. We’ll check them for you and return a set of the following results.

  • If number is valid
  • UUID
  • If number has been ported to another network
  • MCC code
  • MNC code
