How do I search for phone numbers?
You can search for phone numbers on the Buy a Number page in your account portal. Make sure to have the correct country selected in the drop-down menu in the upper right corner.
Hints for searching
“*” is the wild card character. It means “any digit”. Here are some useful tricks for finding phone numbers. I’ll use US phone numbers as an example, but the following hints should work for phone numbers from any country.
- To search for any 707 area code number which ends in a “2″, you could search for (707)******2
- To find any phone number which ends in “1234″, you could search for (***)***1234
- You can also just search for (***)1234 to find a number anywhere in the US that contains 1234
- You can also search by letters. So you could search for (***)fun to find any numbers with ‘fun’ anywhere in the number
These same search patterns can be used as part of the “Contains” list filter when making a GET request to the AvailablePhoneNumbers list resource.
