What Is A Phone Carrier Lookup?

A text marketing platform sends your promotional/transactional messages from an application protocol instead of a cell phone. Still, texting services need to know which operator the sim card belongs. Thus, some companies are using cell phone carrier lookup for the numbers that enter their system. And when they add a number, it automatically gets stored.

The moment you send the message from SendSMS.Global portal, our carrier lookup automatically defines the country and network. The system then sends the message to the destination operator, of course without any additional charges.
