Are you trying to get around an sms gateway to send an sms via email?  

I would ask people what carrier they have and store that data.  There are some api's that require payment.

Google search will bring up sites that will tell you what provider it originally belonged to.  I say 'originally' because some numbers can be transferred between providers but I don't know what the rules are.
