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.

            Testimonial 1307 out of 1983

            Bill Quimby and his staff provided me with exactly what I needed, exactly when I needed it. It is not often that that level of service is found by simply searching the internet and calling the company. I was very impressed with the quick response to my request and by the follow-up to be sure that my order was fulfilled immediately. The 877 # that I ordered was working before I hung up the phone with the person who took my credit card and confirmed my order! That was amazing even in today's "I need it yesterday" mode of business operations.

            Being an I.T. consultant for the last 20 years, I am called upon to do things quickly, correctly and cost efficiently. With Bill's service, I was able to satisfy my client's request in less than an hour, with a great number for a great price. In the future, I will be using Bill's service at every opportunity.

            Thanks Bill. It is a pleasure doing business with someone who remembers how business should be done.
