HLR stands for Home Location Register, a database of mobile phone subscribers registered with a specific mobile network. Every SIM card has a unique identifier, which is the primary key to an HLR record.
Query HLR checks if the number is valid and active in a network, and removes the inactive numbers. It will increase the delivery rate and save you sending costs.
In order to run HLR query:
Go to the Lists page and select the list you want to check. There please click the icon you see on the screenshot below:
Here you can see the price per 1 number check, overall price and total amount of numbers to check. You can set any amount of numbers. We usually recommend checking 10-15% of the numbers. If after the check at least 75% of numbers are good - then there’s no need to check all the numbers. Otherwise we recommend checking all numbers.
After the check you will have the amount of Good and Bad Numbers.
