What is phone number validation and verification?

Phone number validation is a method to check that the phone numbers you collect and have stored in your database are valid, active and deliverable.

Experian Phone Validation is the most effective way to ensure only accurate, complete and correctly formatted phone numbers populate your database. The tool can validate and verify landline and mobile numbers in real-time at the point of capture and in bulk for the existing records in your database.  

The solution checks every part of the phone number, including the number syntax and format, country code, number length, network provider and existence on the network, porting status and reachability to ensure important communications can be delivered.
