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.

            Your company (tollfreenumbers) is one of the most efficient, quality and professional services I have ever dealt with in over thirty years of business! As you know, time is very important when operating a business and by dealing with your company I successfully acquired the perfect number for my business without wasting a lot of time and not once was I subjected to a "pushy" salesperson. Your support team is phenomenal.

            Thank you and we will be in contact soon for our next venture.vanity 800 numbers for leading edge

            I'd like to thank Bill, Gloria, and Rita for being so helpful throughout this entire process of obtaining a toll free number. There are literally 100's of vendors out there that seem to provide the same service but Bill sold me with his quick response to questions and his patience. It was important for me and my company to find the right number and Bill provided me with numerous options every time I inquired about a particular number. Other providers that I looked into gave me very limited choices to choose from and most were much more expensive.

            And once I purchased my toll free number....that's when your customer service kicked into high gear. From follow up emails to ensure my satisfaction, to your detailed packet of information that made transferring my new number a breeze, your customer service has been AWESOME!

            Thank you,

            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. I have seen some clients pay some big bucks for Vanity
            numbers. My Client Kraft paid $40K for 1800- Miracle for their Miracle
            Whip product for example.

            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 amazing.

            Just ordered our 5th number from you, and might order our 6th in a minute or two... For any business - and especially with a web-based business - the credibility that a related vanity toll free number provides is substantial. For this price, you'd be crazy not to do it!

            Still amazing service, including quick replies from the owner himself. This is a wonderful (and rare) company - keep up the good work.

            The ease and speed of your lookup system is the key. I was able to keep coming back time-after-time, until finally a good number became available. Then the system really comes through with an instant reservation. I swear I thought I heard a champagne cork popping.

I like the fact that your company give your consumers the lead way to select the number we like and place it on hold until we make a final decision. This allows us the time to work our business plan and marketing strategy accordingly.
