In this article we cover the process of registering your numbers with third parties who assign risk ratings to numbers for carriers.
Call labeling, at its most basic level, is when a third party organization provides a carrier (like Verizon, T-Mobile or AT&T) a risk rating for a phone number which will then be labeled accordingly (spam, scam, etc.)
For a more in-depth look at call labeling you can reference this article:
Register your numbers:
The process of registering your numbers with the third parties that handle providing risk rating for carriers can help remove the current call labeling on a number and reduce the chance that your number is labeling incorrectly in the future.
If you are still engaging in activity that these third party organizations flag as spam, registering your numbers will not help.

Hiya averages a response time of 1-2 business days. First Orion and TNS average a response time of 2-3 weeks. An email will be sent to inform you when your numbers have been submitted for call labeling.
This is not a foolproof solution, your numbers can still be labeled as scam or spam. If your phone numbers currently have any labels on them by these providers, it will be removed once the numbers are registered.
