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.

            Thanks so much for your help with my new toll free vanity number (888-HOM-BYRS). My number is so new and I have already seen a positive effect on my lead generation.

            You make it so easy to get setup and the price makes it the right choice. I especially like the "800 watch service" that you provide. This service was instrumental in informing me of a number that really fit my

            I think we may be able to work together in finding a number. Believe it or not, of all the web info that I was able to find on 800 numbers, your's was the most useful and obviously the most honest.

            Your site was not just informative but extremely helpful and really built trust, which is crucial in business decisions but talking to you in person sealed the deal. You are the kind of person that deserves customer loyalty and ‘earns’ it one customer at a time. I liked that you provided all the details upfront and let me (the customer) make an informed decision too. You definitely know your business and I will be referring friends and associates to your site, trusting that you will handle the business as promptly and professionally as you did mine.

            You definitely exceeded my expectations. Thank you for all the work you put into helping me ‘look good’ and make a choice that will mean more business.
