Mobile Number Portability (MNP)

MNP Lookup keeps your contact database up-to-date with active MSISDN


Important: This MNP is only available for lookup information on Australia MSISDN.

The MNP-API enables a lookup service for Australian MSISDN. Each transaction will incur a cost of $0.02 AUD including GST.

The Basic method enables users to validate whether a particular Australia MSISDN is valid. The Client issues either a HTTP GET or POST request to the SMSGlobal HTTP interface supplying a list of required parameters. SMSGlobal issues back a HTTP Response which indicates the validity of the MSISDN.

The same HTTP GET or POST request is submitted to SMSGlobal, however the more details results are pushed back to you.

Delivery options include email and HTTP Post Back.
