Thanks but no.

If I have an individual number how can I see who is the current provider of it?

By way of explanation.
We have a customer with mutiple providers at many of their branches and due to procedures cannot easily get hold of the provider bills to see who bills for which numbers.

Need an easy way to find out who is the telco provider for unique numbers due to many ports that have gone on.

Was wondering if there is a "service number" (like 1956 that gives your calling number) or website that you can enter a number and be provided with the current provider details?

Mobile is easy, you just use the TXT service.

For landlines the answer is no. It can be done but there is no public website that will give you the data.

Well in that case, Steve's right. The porting database is not public. Well, it *is*, but you have to sign up to IPMS to get access to it, and they don't let you do that just for curiosity's sake. :-)

It's possible that 07 832 0000 may give you the answer, (it'll tell for some cases, who the tolls are with).

Otherwise, it's a case of collecting invoices or a lot of ringing around.

johnmo: We have a customer with mutiple providers at many of their branches and due to procedures cannot easily get hold of the provider bills to see who bills for which numbers.


Slightly OT, when we were doing phone systems, it was amazing the call savings we achieved just by double-checking bills.  We saw a lot of internet overusage charges (simple to fix by upgrading plans) and phone lines that were never used, or were installed at (now) ex-employee's homes.

Business owners really need to regularly audit their teleco expenses!

call up your service provider and asked?

i called telecom to ask if rebtel number 09-4427363 is telecom landline so i can call international for cheaper price with telecom favourite, the customer service told me she had a look but it doesn't belong to telecom :(

i don't know if she actually looked up in database or just trash talk, anyway sharing my experience here

for mobile just send a txt and see how much it costs you, txt is cheap anyway

Yes and no.  Sending a SMS to 300 will tell you if the mobile is connected to the providers network or not.  And it may or may not work with MVNO's (not 100% sure it will depend on if it's a Telecom or Vodafone MVNO).

So the 021 could be with Vodafone, or Telecom or 2 Degrees.  So you would need to SMS 300 from at least two (if not really all) to see which network the number is connected to.
