Major Types of Location Routing Number (LRN)

Aloware has an LRN API that is used to lookup phone number information automatically or to clean your contact data. It programmatically searches all accounts whenever a new phone number is added to the platform and identifies those phone numbers as

  • Landline

  • Wireless

  • VOIP - Allows phone calls through your internet connection

  • Other

📝 Note - $0.002 (two-tenth of a cent) is charged for any LRN lookup. You may ask your Billing Manager if you have questions. Read the LRN API article to learn more.
