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.

            Bill, I have been in the Call Center business for 22 plus years,
            Particularly in the Direct Response side. Many of my clients over the
            years, consider using Vanity numbers during certain marketing campaigns like
            print and radio. Others have tried to ascertain vanity numbers and go through various quagmires and run into small print surprises and dubious conditions, like not really owning the vanity number. Clients also face challenges in RespOrging the TFN to their carriers. Thus, frankly I was very skeptical,
            when my client eSafecards was purchasing a vanity number from you. I worked with Rita, and the vanity number was RespOrged in one day. That was

            This is about the fifth time I've used after experiencing years of frustration with my local carrier attempting to secure vanity numbers for my businesses. I want everyone to know that I have no relationship to the owners and/or operators of this Company when I say this, "This is the single greatest marketing tool I've come across in recent years for my businesses." And yes, you can quote me on that. I refer to all of my associates.

            Bill has never waivered from his stance of being honest and more than fair to his clients. Simply stated, Bill is a true business professional., my company, is not as focused as Bill's. So I will get questions from clients and our global agents about tollfree numbers that I cannot directly answer. My response to them is always "if there is an answer, I know where to get it - Mr. TollFreeNumbers."
