How to Check If a Phone Number Is Still Active or Not?

Ever tried dialling a phone number incessantly only to keep failing to get through? It would definitely feel a lot better to know if that number you are dialling is still active or not, especially if you are maintaining obsolete lists.

It isn’t news that phones are important in effectively contacting clients and prospective leads. However, it isn’t uncommon for persons to switch from a cell phone service provider to another, or get rid of a phone number entirely.

Not being able to tell whether or not a phone number is still active becomes a problem and leads to businesses losing advertising resources by messaging inactive numbers.

Thankfully you need not worry, TextMagic and Phone Number Monitoring described below will check the number for you. You can also use Covve’s Phone Wizard to upload a large list and get info on the country and whether a number is a landline or a mobile.


This online phone number validation tool isn’t only useful for checking the format of a phone number, it can also perform a live ‘ping’ to any number to check whether or not it’s active. Visit or download the TextMagic mobile app on google play store.
