For every valid number processed through the API we’ll return information regarding the current status of that number.
It is this information you can use to determine if your numbers are currently live and contactable.
There are 3 specific fields returned in the Status Information section of your API result that that tell you the current Status.
error_code, error_text and Status are all linked and you can use any of these fields.
For example, anything marked as Live will always be Error Code 1 and Status Delivered
All other Error Texts and Error Codes do not reflect a Live a number and are therefore marked in the Status column as Undelivered
