Hi!

My customer want’s to allow calls to landlines in EU and US and disallow
calls to cells in EU. Rest of countries are blocked.

Country blocking is easy… Is there a service that allows checking
phone number? Maybe some specific Enum? I ask for number and server
responds with info, for example: “Cell Phone, Belgium” or “Land Line,
Germany”.

  • Sadly there is no ‘EU numbering’. Europe isn’t a country, thus doesn’t share any dial plan. There appears to be some tendency towards having a ‘7’ at the front of a mobile number, but it’s far from universal. Each telco/regulating body will probably supply a list of codes. OFCOM in the UK do. Failing that, putting the country code (e.g. +44) into google gives a fairly rough outline for each country.

    If your provider provides a proper rate table you will pretty much
    know which is mobile and which is fixed line…. and assuming their
    rates are accurate I assume your company wouldn’t care if you allowed
    the mobiles billed at fixed line rates.
