The Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC) supports the implementation of Local Number Portability and is the system used to facilitate number porting in the United States. It includes information when a telephone number is ported from a wireless number or a wireline number or vice versus. This information is needed by any business that must comply with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which prohibits the use of autodialers or prerecorded messages to any telephone number in which the called party is charged.
iconectiv has been established as the next Local Number Portability Administrator (LNPA) in all U.S. regions. The transition is underway and will be completed in 2018.

The WDNC Service limits Resellers to one level of resale. A Reseller Customer may resell to a Second Tier Customer, but the Second Tier Customer may not then resell the service (or any data from the WDNC service).
No. As a Direct Customer, if you make calls on behalf of yourself and/or on behalf of your customers, you would not be reselling the Service as long as you do not sell, assign, lease, or otherwise disclose the data that comprises the service.
A Direct Customer may disclose to its clients the results of calls it makes on behalf of those clients (e.g., leads generated, survey results, applications for products/services, etc.), including the associated telephone numbers. However, the Direct Customer cannot simply provide confirmation to its client that a telephone number was ported to a wireless service, as that would constitute a "disclosure" to an entity that has not executed an agreement with iconectiv as a customer of a Reseller Customer. In this instance, a client would be required to register with iconectiv and execute its own Service Agreement.
Yes. A separate subscription (and the corresponding fee) is required for each database you provision.
A “Database” means a single aggregation of data records or files containing the Intermodal Ports that make up the Service provided under this Agreement.
If a Customer (a) aggregates data from the Service into a single Database, and (b) allows multiple entities to access data from the Service in such a Database, then such Customer is a Reseller Customer, and those receiving such data from such Reseller Customer are Second Tier Customers as defined in Section 5.2 of the WDNC Service Agreement.
No. Rights to the service are limited to each legal entity that purchases a subscription. A “Customer” does not include any affiliates of such entity. Any affiliate of a Customer that desires access to the Service must qualify as a Customer, in accordance with Article 5 (Qualification) of the iconectiv Wireless Do Not Call Service Agreement and execute its own Agreement
The service provides information when a telephone number is ported from a wireless number to a wireline number or vice versus. Since the Telephone Consumer Protection Act TCPA prohibits the use of autodialers or prerecorded voice messages to any telephone number in which the called party is charged, businesses that use autodialers to contact consumers can use this service to help them round out their TCPA compliance efforts for telephone marketing.
