How to manage phone numbers

The Voximplant platform can accept calls from different sources: phones, web pages, mobile devices. And you can buy a number from us or connect your current phone number via SIP. To buy a test phone number, read the article given below:

Purchasing

On the Voximplant control panel, select My phone numbers from the menu on the left and then select Buy new phone number in the upper right corner.

The phone number interface will be displayed. You’ll need to select one or more real numbers and click Buy.

After you’ve bought a number, you'll immediately see this number on the list.

Calling

You have to associate a phone number with one of your Voximplant applications to be able to call it. To do so, go to Applications, click on the needed application and switch to the Numbers tab. Here, click on the Available tab, select a number and click Attach.

Now you can use this number to make calls. Detach the numbers the same way if needed. That's it.

Verification

If you've chosen the number in the country where no special verification is required (for example, in The United States), you will be able to make calls straight away, otherwise, there will be a notification to upload verification documents required by the authorities in the country. It will take some time until the number becomes active if all the submitted verification documents are correct.

HTTP API requests

The same actions can be controlled via HTTP API.
