How does it work?

QAS Mobile Validate is a service that allows you to verify whether a given mobile telephone number exists and is live on a network in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. The service can be accessed in two ways:

1. In bulk by uploading a .csv file containing the mobile telephone numbers to be validated, separated on new lines. The file is processed offline and you receive an email notification when the process is complete and can download a file containing information about the mobile numbers you supplied.

2. In real-time (one mobile number at a time) by making HTTPS requests to an API endpoint. You receive an XML response containing information about the mobile number you supplied.
