A (partially implemented!) PostgreSQL extension that provides access to Google’s libphonenumber

  • Parsing/formatting/validating phone numbers for all countries/regions of the world.
  • getNumberType – gets the type of the number based on the number itself; able to distinguish Fixed-line, Mobile, Toll-free, Premium Rate, Shared Cost, VoIP and Personal Numbers (whenever feasible).
  • isNumberMatch – gets a confidence level on whether two numbers could be the same.
  • getExampleNumber/getExampleNumberByType – provides valid example numbers for all countries/regions, with the option of specifying which type of example phone number is needed.
  • isPossibleNumber – quickly guessing whether a number is a possible phonenumber by using only the length information, much faster than a full validation.
  • isValidNumber – full validation of a phone number for a region using length and prefix information.
  • AsYouTypeFormatter – formats phone numbers on-the-fly when users enter each digit.
  • findNumbers – finds numbers in text input.
  • PhoneNumberOfflineGeocoder – provides geographical information related to a phone number.
  • PhoneNumberToCarrierMapper – provides carrier information related to a phone number.
