The Custom Toll Free SMS API is a core SMS system that enables RespOrgs to make the following API calls: reserve, query, spare, disconnect and change RespOrg. This industry-standard API service enables a RespOrg to effectively manage their business for a lower cost.

SMS API Calls

RespOrg- The RespOrgID of the RespOrg that currently holds this number. An example ID is “RUC01”.

Status- Identifies the status of the toll free number. For example, a status may be Working, Assigned, Reserved, Spare, disconnect and more.

Status Date- Date of the last status change.

  • Reserve – Reserve a toll free number from the Spare Pool into the RespOrg of your choice. Once a number is reserved, it can be held for 45 days before it must be either connected or released.
  • Query – A query to the SMS/800 database to determine the RespOrg and status of a toll free number. The query will return the following information:
  • Spare – Release a disconnected or reserved number to the Spare Pool.
  • Disconnect – Disconnects a working number
  • Change RespOrg – Transfer a number into or out of a RespOrg by changing the RespOrg ID from one RespOrg to another.
