Mobile Billing and Messaging aggregator txtNation today announced they have added further routing in their popular and market-leading HLR Lookup product. txtNation claim to have added several new MNO routes for HLR Lookup. Currently used by SMS aggregators, service providers in mobile billing and messaging, the HLR Lookup service enables real time validity of a mobile number and gives operator identification and roaming information. For SMS aggregators and service providers alike, this improves revenue margins by reducing routing inaccuracies.

Harnessing the power of txtNation’s SMSC and supporting infrastructure, HLR Lookup provides SMS aggregators and service providers with the most detailed mobile number information on the market. txtNation’s vast array of messaging connections to the SS7 mobile signalling network enable full access to operator Home Location Registers (HLRs) for high quality of service.

“With the increasing popularity of mobile number portability (MNP) and routing for bulk sms, it is becoming increasingly important to make sure we have routes into markets where service providers can check a mobile number.” said Michael Whelan, CEO, txtNation. “Quite simply, the more routes the better, for redundancy and price”.

If you have not looked at using HLR Lookup for Premium Billing then look again.

For customers on Wifi, service providers can use HLR to benefit their advertising and save costs.

Why use HLR for Premium Billing?

HLR can save money on acquisition costs by identifying if the service provider should send the opt in (PIN, OTP or Keyword).

Main uses:


Use look up to check network to see if traffic source is on the advertisers cpa.

Use look up to check if number entered is active and if user is valid.

 HLR Lookup for Billing

Once the number is checked using HLR, you can:

Send PIN or keyword information when mobile number is correct.

Send PIN or keyword information when network is correct.

For Bulk routing:

Working with the best Mobile Billing flow is often key for Billing success. It may be worth to use PIN with Link on verification for opt ins.

The process is more robust and secure than Keyword verification.

  • Using your web form you will get a PIN and LINK
  • Users click on the link to complete the process (or enter the PIN)
  • The PIN or LINK will not work if on a different device.



For Desktop user inputting MSISDN and subsequently PIN, independently.
