How to Find Out If a Vanity Number is Available

It’s no secret that a memorable and well-placed vanity phone number gives your brand an edge that regular numbers just can’t compete with. 

Finding the best available phone number for your business requires some creativity and a robust database. That’s where we come in.  RingBoost has the largest selection of available phone numbers on the market.

How will a vanity number help my business?

The answer is simple: memorability. Memorable phone numbers generate more inbound calls. A lot more calls. Which leads to increased sales.

When someone can recall your number in a heartbeat, they’ve got a direct line to your services without any distractions or detours to rival businesses. A well-placed vanity number is a lifetime marketing campaign with amazing ROI, helping your brand to stand out from the competition. 

Countless industries employ vanity numbers to increase customer engagement. Here’s a few:

How to find out if a vanity number is available

Finding available numbers is simple with the RingBoost database. But which numbers will you search?

Before you start assessing availability, you’ll have to figure out which vanity numbers make sense for your business.

Step 1 – Choose the perfect vanity number for your business

Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what the right phone for your business will be.RingBoost can help you make an informed decision by providing you with some simple guidelines:

  • Identify your target market. Even the best marketing tools fall short if you don’t know who your audience is. You should be clear on this when you begin the process. 
  • Keep it simple. Pick phrases and words that are easy to spell. Choose numbers that are easy to remember and avoid unique names or words that can be easily misdialed. .
  •  Make it memorable. Choose a word or phrase that incorporates the name or benefit of your company.
  • Avoid hybrid numbers; a combination of letters and numbers. 
  • Have a back up choice. Vanity phone numbers are in high-demand. Depending on your budget and preferred area code (or prefix for toll free numbers) your first choice may not be available. 800 numbers for example, are premium and in short supply. Searching other toll free numbers (833, 844, 855, etc.) can yield better results. Having a few different keywords to work with will help your search.

Step 2 – Check availability in the RingBoost database

Once you’ve come up with your choices, finding a vanity number is simple. Use RingBoost’s easy-to-search database to find available phone numbers – local and toll-free.

In the database, you’ll enter your preferred number in the search box and browse through the available results. You can also search by keyword, area code, or state. You can even browse by category

Your perfect vanity number is available! What’s next?

Easy payment and set-up

Securing your new number through our online payment portal only requires a credit card and there’s no technical “know-how” or equipment required for setting it up. 

RingBoost offers US-based concierge support in any of the three options for activation:

  • Port your number
  • Call forward your number
  • Park your number


Porting is the process of moving a phone number from one carrier to another. In this case, the carrier where your purchased number “lives” to the carrier of your choice.

Once your new number is released to your carrier, it’s ready for use. It typically can take between 7-10 business days, so plan accordingly. 

Although a relatively straight-forward process, porting and dealing with carriers can at times be cumbersome. With the RingBoost support team available to you through the entire process, you can help whenever you need it. 

Pick a call-forwarding plan

RingBoost offers customized call-forwarding plans to fit every budget and the support team can assist you in selecting the plan that best suits your needs. 

All plans come with numerous helpful features: 

  • Real-Time Call Reporting & Analytics
  • Call Notification Emails
  • Caller ID Display
  • Faxing
  • Voicemail to Email
  • Conference Bridge
  • And more...


If you’re not quite ready to activate your new number, parking allows you to retain ownership at a fraction of the cost of a plan and you can activate it whenever you need it. RingBoost Number Parking is only $4.99/month and discounts are offered for multiple number parking.
