Build 4.0.0.102

Released March 2021

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where incorrect results were returning when specifying the country code “US“ with an international phone number. The inputted country code will now take priority for selecting the location of the phone number.


Build 4.0.0.100

Released November 2020

Updates
  • Back-end changes to Europe hosted web services to comply with GDPR Regulations with regards to data caching.


Build 4.0.0.99

Released August 2020

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where we are not able to handle German Phone Numbers with a prefix of 00. The service should now properly handle this.
  • Fixed an issue where Brazilian Landlines were not verifying accurately due to country restrictions. Brazil now uses Range Data to verify phone numbers.


Build 4.0.0.91

Released March 2020

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where Global Phone was not logging usage for Premium Verifications for Canada.
  • Occasionally, premium requests made will return the result codes "PE11,PS01,PS07". PE11 indicates a disconnected phone, and PS01 indicates a valid phone. These two result codes should not be able to be returned together. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue where PE11 phone numbers would output incorrect results. If a record returns a result code of PE11, it should only populate the output fields that a PE01 record populates. The only populated output fields for PE01 records are RecordID, Results, PhoneNumber, and CountryAbbreviation, which is how PE11 records should now return as well.

  • + codes take priority over country codes, which take priority over defaultCallingCodes. This means that if one exists, the service will focus the search in that specified area and ignore the other parameters
  • For example, an input of +861234567890 would only search in China (+86) even if ctry was set to ‘US’.
  • If there is no match, the service will not look in other countries
  • If you want to search all countries, leave country code and defaultCallingCode blank, while submitting a phone number without a + code
