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

    Is there a standard concerning number disconnects after a resprog is delivered to the current provider? For example, if I want to move a toll free number from carrier 1 to carrier 2 what exact happens? I assume that after I sign the resprog with carrier 2 it is sent to carrier 1. Is there a standard for how long carrier 1 holds the number before release? Do they just release it without confirming it is connected through carreir 2?

    Thanks for your information.

      Hi Ron,

      Yes, you fill the authorization form out with carrier 2 who sends it to carrier 1 when they are ready for carrier 1 to release it. Carrier 1 typically responds within a few days. We release them the same day we get the request but nobody else ever them that fast. We also notify both the new carrier and the customer but nobody else usually notifies the new carrier, they just release it.

      We are accountable and hold ourselves to a higher standard because we see this as part of our job but most resporgs are very unaccountable and you can never reach anyone in most resporg departments. Most people also blame the other carrier as kind of a knee jerk reaction, even if they didn’t even send it to them yet.

            I was very pleased at how quickly and easily I was able to use your website to find a toll-free number that "worked" well for our law firm. In addition, I was absolutely astounded at how quickly the toll-free number was up and running and ringing in on our local number. It was virtually instantaneous. It was also very reasonably priced. Keep up the terrific work!

            I think you have a fabulous service! I was trying desperately to obtain an 800 number from Embarq - they were not only inept, but their follow through was questionable. The right hand and the left hand were doing a dance unbeknownst to eachother- well- someone recommended your service and voila- it took a week or two to obtain the form from EMBARQ- and now- I have an 800 number!dog walking service

            You are a wonder- thank you
