Frequency of Same Number Requests
Sending too many request to the API for the same phone number within a short period of time may result in an error, even if data is available for that number. If you receive a -60001 error in the response after making consecutive requests for the same phone number, consider limiting your request rate.
Your request was fulfilled and resulted in a new resource being created. If you want to code against a response, you should retrieve the status or error code and use that rather than the HTTP status response.
