Phone Append processes use the name and address information (and sometimes other data) you already have
to find phone numbers. But PacificEast doesn't just have one flavor of Phone Append, we have seven. Our business information
services have access to the largest number of independent contact data repositories (both public and private) in
North America so we can make sure you get the best phone number available to meet your needs. For a
quick reference to all of our Phone Append products check out the Quick Reference chart below.

Why not have just one product like most Phone Append service companies? Simple: because not all
phone numbers are the same and because phone number availability depends on your company.
The best available phone number varies by several different factors including:
In order to serve this wide variety of uses and industries, PacificEast's line of Phone Append products
- Your type of industry (or in some cases, your customer's type of industry)
- What you plan to do with the phone number
- Whether or not you have "Permissable Use"
- The geographic location of the phones for which you are searching
- The types of phones for which you are searching
For full details about use of data we recommend contacting your Account Manager or our
- Compiled / Whitepages – Compiled (sometimes referred to as "whitepage") Phone Append provides
you with access to the largest number of phone numbers at the lowest price point. This repository is
generally updated monthly with new numbers. If you're looking for the best price, this is your best
- 411 / Directory Assistance – Directory Assistance Phone Append (sometimes referred to as DA or
411) provides you with the highest level of currency and accuracy. Data in this repository is updated
daily in most cities with new listings, disconnects and contact data changes directly by the relevant
phone company. If you're looking for the most current data, this is your best buy. Since this
repository of residential data is considered a publically available source, DA & 411 phone numbers are
available to all companies for any legal purpose.
- Business – Business phone numbers are available in the Business Phone Append. This repository
has the same quality and recency as our residential 411 data, but contains only listings for
- Restricted – PacificEast's Restricted product line includes the premier repository of non-public
phone numbers in the US. This repository is available only for specific uses. Some of these uses depend
on your industry so we recommend contacting us for details on your planned use and we can tell you if
any of our Restricted products are right for you. Our restricted repository includes cell phone
numbers, unpublished and unlisted residential and business phone numbers. If you're tired of "number
not found" messages and are not making outbound marketing calls, this repository might be right for
you. (Note: This product requires an additional data use addendum to be signed.)
- Restricted Landline – This version of our Restricted Phone Append product does not include cell phone
numbers. This is most useful for companies that are allowed to use restricted phones but for other
reasons cannot make calls to cell or wireless phones. (Note: This product requires an additional data
use addendum to be signed.)
- United Kingdom / UK Call Prep - Like our other phone appending services, our UK Call Prep service
that covers the United Kingdom finds and verifies telephone numbers based on the names and addresses you provide.
However, in the UK regulations and systems aren't identical to those in North America; even the processes considered
"best practice" differ between the UK and US. Our UK Call Prep service performs the essential elements
of appending phone numbers but also automatically checks phone numbers against the UK Telephone Preference System,
or TPS. TPS, like DNC in the US and Canada, ensures it's ok for the number to be called even without previous
permission. In the UK (where the calling number pays the bill) the regulations for calling cell phones
are different than in the US and Canadian (where the called number pays the bill). We've designed our
UK Call Prep system to work seamlessly along with our other phone append services so PacificEast can be your single,
one-stop shop for phone appending in the US, Canada and the UK.
- Canada – PacificEast's repository of Canadian data brings you access to another 14 million
Canadian phone numbers including both businesses and consumers. In Canada data "currency" varies by
province with some provinces allowing daily updates and some monthly updates. If you are either a
Canadian business looking for new customers or a business outside Canada with a desire to market to or
contact businesses and consumers within Canada, this is a great choice.
- SSN – Also called an SSN Search Contact Append, this product appends not just a phone number but
also a full name and address from a social security number and surname. (Note: This product requires an
additional data use addendum to be signed.)
