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.

            Best service by far I have seen on the web, I have found numbers that could not do in other providers. Also this company is honestly charging for their fees, not buying the number and reselling it and charging outragous monthly fees.Lifetime Exterminators exterminates termites and controls other wood-destroying organisms in your property

            I am exceptionally glad with the service we received and though you were recommended by the providers of the office phone system we have (PBS) we are surprised that they would not make a better point earlier in the process of having to talk to you as early as possible about a toll free number.

            You were very specific about what we can expect, how we can go about selecting our phone number. The consultation that we received got in to specific techniques in marketing (for our company) etc.

            We are very pleased with the technical facility you have (the program on your website) to select spelling (vanity) phone numbers. It gave us so many ideas that we went from not seeing any opportunities for what our number should spell to almost too many options.

            Any way - you are great and I wish you do great in the future too.

            At the risk of sounding cliched, has proven to be one of the single most valuable tools I've used an a businessman over the years. The backbone of any viable marketing campaign is a solid vanity number and Bill Quimby and his staff remove the inherent hassles and consequent lag time of dealing with various phone companies and vendors. In addition, their price structure is more than fair. I've recommended to more people than any other online service I've ever used.

            Thanks for setting up my new 800 number. I was surprised - and very pleased - at how easy it was. Hugo and I were in business with our new Vanity Number in just minutes from entering your site.

            Your directions were clear and concise and the number look-up very quick. AND, I found just the right Vanity number. Hugo and I highly recommend

            Thank you Bill, Gloria and Rita. You've been wonderful again in not just getting me the number I wanted but stayed with it until we got it all transferred and set-up. Just so the readers would know; I am saying this because it is truly how I feel. These folks are not just there for the $, they take pride in what they do. This is my second number and should I need additional numbers, I'll definitely go back to "".

            thanks again

            I believe that the experience was first rate! I'm still impressed and have been telling all of my friends, which are quite a few, that are starting a business about you and your sites...Just today about an hour ago actually. I don't recommend anyone that I don't believe me!

            I could not be any happier with my experience getting a toll free number from Your website is easy to navigate and your search programs gave me more options that any other toll free website I could find.

            I did not think it was possible to get a number so quickly. I found the number I wanted, then purchased it online, and I "instantly" got my number. It could not be any faster. You even have a way to reserve the number in case I found another number that was better.
