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.

            We bought this phone line as an emergency number for my teenage sister. My husband suggested a vanity line so she could easily remember the number. We were able to find one that included her name. Thanks for all the "hand holding" you offer along the way!

            This is the most complete and user-friendly website I have used in a long time. You anticipated every question I had and answered each one very clearly. -------- AND YOU ACTUALLY ANSWERED THE PHONE WHEN I CALLED TO CONFIRM MY NUMBER. I thank you. I will insist that anyone I know who needs a toll free number start with you.

            I personally spoke with Bill Quimby by calling toll free and he guided me through the process and showed me why his toll-free site is the best around.

            Thanks Bill!

            Thank You! I am not the person who usually handles this part of the business, so I thought it would be a difficult, bureaucratic mess. Working with made my job easy and fun! Their search engine is fantastic, giving me ideas I had not thought of on my own. My new number is perfect!

            I appreciate the service you provided me and the service you provide to the 1800 community. It is indeed of great value to be able to register a vanity 800# through a 3rd party provider like yourself. Your 800# vanity search engine is excellent and offers superb suggestions based on your original search criteria. Registering the number with you was fast, and transferring it to an 1800 service provider was just as quick and efficient.

            I also appreciate the 800 disconnects newsletter, which alerts me when other 1800#'s tailored around my vanity number becomes available.

            Many thanks,
