How much information is really necessary to Port an 800 number?

phone company information for the responsible organization change formIf you were porting a number from AT&T to the company you’re sending it to would they really need AT&T’s name and address etc? They need YOUR name and address and contact information but the only information any phone company needs to port a number is the previous carrier name and their Resporg ID, which in our case is Resporg.com (or TollFreeNumbers.com is usually also acceptable) and QZA01 which is our ID. Any resporg can look up and get the current contact information for any other resporg with that. The only thing you might want to include beyond that is our fax number 800-FAX-0095.

Some Resporg forms are confusing and make it seem like they need a lot more information. But they’re really not mailing anything to us. The general rule I usually ask a representative who’s questioning something is this. What would you do if you were transferring a number from AT&T? If it were AT&T, would they require an address to put there and what difference would it make if they put the local billing office or the main HQ? At that point it’s usually clear that the phone company’s address isn’t necessary or even helpful. They do need the name and address of the customer though, along with their authorization to take the number. They really don’t need the releasing company to authorize it or very much information about them other than the name (and ID if known).

    Potential Hoarding of Toll Free Numbers

    Call Source activated 1 million toll free numbers in the past two yearsThe FCC has regulations against hoarding and brokering. Hoarding is defined as taking more numbers from the Available pool than you have a legitimate business need for. Brokering is taking numbers from the Available pool for the purpose of reselling them. I’ve explained why I think the danger isn’t abuse by end users but by phone companies. Plus toll free numbers are also invisible and have no physical presence so very few people ever see how many numbers each phone company has.

    For various reasons, the FCC hasn’t been overly aggressive in enforcing this type of abuse, combined with the inability of anyone to see or appreciate how many numbers different companies have, is enabling some companies to take advantage of the situation. I obviously can’t do anything about the FCC, but I can make toll free numbers more visible, and expose just a little of the possible abuses of the system.

    I don’t do this to condemn anyone, but with 855 numbers coming out the danger of major abuse will be exponentially increased. In the mean time I’m going to show the volume of numbers activated and controlled by some companies. For instance, the fact that one company recently took over 400,000 numbers at one time, doesn’t prove that they are hoarding or brokering numbers, but at some point it has to be at least a little suspicious. If you’re wondering why we’re running out of toll free numbers, take a look at the amount of numbers activated by CallSource.com. Over the past two years the volume of numbers available has decreased by about 3 million numbers, while at the same time CallSource alone, increased by almost 1 million numbers, (from half a million to one and a half million numbers!)

      RespBorg

      There's no Borg in Resporg

      A phone company sent us a cover page from their “RespBorg” department. It’s an abbreviation for Responsible Organization so it’s obviously supposed to be RespOrg but we couldn’t help picturing what a RespBorg might look like! We’re definitely going to have to use this picture on our Resporg Transfer requests too.

        Shared Use by a resporg = HOARDING

        Shared use by the resporg is always toll free number hoardingShared Use can be a valid business if it meets a few requirements for shared use. And I’ve written about when shared use can cross the line into Hoarding. But there’s a special case where Shared Use is always, by definition Hoarding, and that’s when they are both the Phone Company (aka the Resporg) and the Shared use company. And just because they set up two different business names doesn’t make it any less hoarding, if they’re controlled by the same people.

        Just because shared use is a valid thing to do with a toll free number, doesn’t mean that shared use is a valid reason to acquire toll free numbers and it certainly doesn’t give you the right to grab up as many as you want. This is the very reason that the rules about hoarding were put in place. Just because you call yourself a shared use company doesn’t make you somehow immune to regulations on hoarding or give you the authority to get as many numbers as you want.

        Share use by a resporg is essentially the perfect definition of hoarding because it requires obtaining the number before there is an actual end user for the number. A resporg is supposed to get numbers out of the spare pool at the request of end users, not for some future potential end user. One of the best specific examples of hoarding toll free numbers, is Greg Fernandez’s company, The Telco. With virtually no customers and no disernable marketing he has been acquiring hundreds of good numbers from other phone companies acting as both the phone company and the customer. This is clearly what the FCC regulations against hoarding were designed to prevent.

        UPDATE: There’s a more recent example of this with a lot of statistics and details Potential hoarding of Toll Free Numbers by a resporg (who also happens to do shared use).

          Protecting your 800 Numbers

          protecting 1-800 numbersA lot of people have asked me what they can do to protect their 800 numbers better, especially given all of the issues of ownership and lost numbers we’ve been seeing lately. Once you put your number in print and in all of your advertising, it’s clearly very difficult, expensive or even impossible to change your number.

          That’s one of the main reasons why customers use our service, so that whoever they use for the service can’t claim because of some technicality or even a change in the fine print of their contract after you sign up. You don’t want to find out that the number you’ve been advertising and promoting for years is suddenly no longer yours and you’re stuck at the mercy of a phone company claiming ownership of your toll free number.

          You really should use a separate Resporg

          First of all, in case you’re not familiar with the toll free terms, Resporg is an abbreviation for “Responsible Organization”, the term for an entity that has access into the 800 database and maintains the customer records for a toll free number.

          The real solution, short of becoming your own resporg is to use an independent third party resporg, rather than simply allowing the phone company servicing the number to be the resporg. The company providing the service has a financial incentive to keep you there. So relying on them for your ability to transfer the number is like relying on your kids to guard the cookies that they want to eat.

            We want to get rid of our customers!

            We want to get rid of as many customers as possibleOur goal is to get rid of all our customers. No other phone company wants to get rid of their customers as badly as we do. And no other phone company is as efficient at getting rid of their customers as we are. We even go out of our way to get rid of customers faster than any other phone company, because getting rid of our customers is actually our job. The more customers we can get rid of the better.

            Regular phone companies want to get and hold their customer for as long as possible. There’s nothing wrong with that as long as they don’t add excessive fees to release their 800 numbers or try to hold you hostage by your 800 number like shared use companies do. Most don’t refuse to release numbers, they just drag their feet as much as possible. And believe me, most phone companies are very efficient at dragging their feet. We’re the only ones crazy enough to try to build a business out of getting rid of our customers. 300 more words for anyone having trouble transferring their 800 number.

              Questions filling out resporg change forms

              800 number resporg change formThis post is intended to help you with the answers to some common questions people sometimes have filling out Resporg forms. The most common question is who is the current, previous or old resporg/carrier?

              We are the old carrier, our official resporg name is Resporg.com and our resporg ID is QZA01. You can also include our fax number (800-FAX-0095) on the form if there’s room, although you don’t send that form to us, but it might save a couple seconds for the people within the phone company who do.

                Warning about using the Ameritech Resporg line

                I was probably the biggest single user of the Ameritech hotline 800-337-4194 for several years. I had a girl whose job it was for a couple years, just to call spreadsheets full of 800 numbers and then call the Ameritech line for all the numbers that didn’t go through.
                The Ameritech resporg line is a great system but the names are very out of date!

                  1-800 answering servicesA lot of times customers need to transfer their toll free number to a call center so I wanted to explain the process for that more clearly. You can either point the toll free number to a local number at the call center or you can transfer the number to the call center’s carrier and account.

                    We used to give out the phone company name and trouble referral number for the phone company responsible for every toll free number. But unfortunately lawyers for the SMS made us take that information down, claiming that we aren’t allowed to give the Resporg data out to the general public. So rather than give out Resporg data, I’ve spent quite a bit of time collecting my own data.

                    We have researched all of the active Resporgs to come up with a more descriptive statement without using the SMS data and where possible their websites. The descriptions we use on the Instant 800 Lookup are listed below with the links to their websites. This should make our system as helpful as possible without giving out any SMS data. Not every phone company is listed, just the ones we have information available for.

                      Resporg

                      An abbreviation for “Responsible Organization” which is the term for an organization or entity which has access to the SMS 800 database. There are around 300 resporgs. They would be “registrars” in the domain name terminology. Many phone companies are Resporgs but not all phone companies are Resporgs and not all reporgs are phone companies.

                      We have a whole section of our site for information on and related to Resporg. See http://www.tollfreenumbers.com/resporg/

                        Global Hotline

                        Global Crossing uses a lot of resellers and they have one of the best easiest to use systems to find the reseller for a specific toll free number. Call 1-800-466-4600 and just follow their prompts. Press, 1 followed by toll free number and have a pen ready. They will tell you the phone number of the reseller that they show the number with. The best thing is that the smaller resellers are usually not as worried about giving out any information as the bigger companies.

                          800 Number Transfer Speed

                          Toll free numbers are portable and able to be transferred from one company to another. However the speed of processing transfer requests varies more than most customers realize. We help companies get good numbers and then transfer them to whatever company the customer wants. So we treat the transfer process as more of a priority. That’s also why we collected and analyzed this data to show our customers how long it takes to transfer their number over to different phone companies. We hope this information is helpful. (more…)

                            Trying to speed up the 800 Transfer Process

                            The toll free number transfer process wasn’t really set up with speed or efficiency in mind. It’s designed to give carriers time to try to win the customer back, not to transfer numbers as quickly as possible. But unlike other carriers, my goal is not to keep customers but to process the transfer requests as quickly and efficiently as possible. So in order to speed up the process of transferring a toll free number from one carrier to another I have developed a unique system. Carrier’s aren’t required to use it, but if they do it can speed up the transfer process for you.

                            The standard process is to contact the carrier you’re moving to and get a Resporg change form (sometimes called an LOA) from them. You fill it out and fax it back to the new carrier. They enter the order and forward the fax up their chain of command through their resporg department. The resporg department then forwards it to the releasing carrier’s resporg department who has a couple days to accept and release the number or reject it. They can only reject it for a couple reasons, basically if any of the information is incorrect, illegible or out of date.

                            The process overall requires the signed information to pass through several layers of bureaucracy especially in larger phone companies. I often find that smaller companies process these much faster as they tend to have fewer layers of bureaucracy. But there are reasons for bureaucracy too and even though I want a number to be transferred as quickly as possible, I don’t want to release it until the appropriate orders are in place for the number, in order to insure that the number isn’t misplaced.

                            Conclusion

                            I preapprove most numbers on my resporg and under my direct control. But whether a carrier wishes to use this expedited process is up to them. Many of the ones which we work with the most generally do, but the larger ones are a little too structured to do anything other than their standard process. I will still respond and approve those within 24 hours or receiving them, quicker than any other regular resporg.

                              Phone company background and information

                              I’ve done a lot of work and research on phone companies (more specifcally the resporgs). This may be helpful so I figured I would post it here. Some of the company names may be duplicated because those companies have multiple resporg IDs. I didn’t post the resporg IDs or their phone numbers. I’ve done that before on my website and may post the trouble referral numbers on another post. Many of the old numbers are out of date and I’ve tried to update that too.

                              24-7-365, Inc. : They’re small and we don’t have much information or background on them but you would need to contact them to inquire about it.

                              800 Ideas: They’re a vanity number company that got a lot of good numbers years ago. They don’t usually sell them but prefer to rent or sublet them out to customers regionally.

                              800 Response: They’re a vanity number business that got a lot of good vanity numbers years ago, especially 800s starting with NEW or NEXT. They usually only want to rent or sublet them by area code so they can keep the ownership and ultimate control of the number.

                              AMS/One World: They’re small and we don’t have much information or background on them but you would need to contact them to inquire about it.

                              ANPI: They’re small and we don’t have much information or background on them but you would need to contact them to inquire about it.

                              AT&T (Local): This resporg isn’t their regular resporg though, it seems to be for their local service, not the regular long distance services.

                              AT&T: If it goes to a message saying that “No further information is available” at the end, then this number might just be buried withn AT&T somewhere.

                              ATG: They’re small and we don’t have much information or background on them but you would need to contact them to inquire about it.

                              Adeptel: Adeptel also provides specialized routing and tracking services along with their own vanity numbers which they hold the ownership of but like to rent out to customers. Unfortunately you won’t have ownership or control of the number so the more you advertise it, the more at their mercy you become.

                              Advanced Communications Integration: ACI is a very small resorg. One of their services is get1800.com

                              Allegiance: Allegiance was acquired by XO. As with most mergers, if the number doesn’t go through to any one it’s worth calling to inquire about it, because it could wind up lost in the system.

                              Allstream: Allstream is a large Canadian phone company. So the customer is probably in Canada and may not have US coverage.

                              Allstream: Based in Toronto, this company covers all of Canada but many of their customers don’t need calls from the US so if it’s not working there’s a good chance it’s just their coverage.

                                Your strength is not only about your "good" or "fast" service. You really go the extra miles to help your clients. In my case, you helped me to expose a fraudulent document in a Trade Mark dispute by providing me the history of a toll free number used by my opponent. You also directed me to the "right path".
                                Thanks! You were a great help to crack the case in my favor! And all this was for free which was very nice of you!
