Welcome to JavaRanch
You could try searching for the mobile number in the database before inserting, but it is probably better to use the UNIQUE keyword in the SQL. You will get a straightforward
with error state, error code, and message.

If possible add the UNIQUE keyword to the table's definition for that column.
