What is the “add numbers” for?
Add numbers is a tool designed to make number selection and acquisition fast and easy for the account owner. It is used to add numbers from our available selection to your account so you can make and receive calls, messages and faxes.
What type of phone numbers can I add?
We offer a selection of Toll-Free US numbers, local US numbers, custom numbers and foreign numbers. We also have custom (vanity) numbers that aren’t free but are worth it as they provide your business with better marketing power.
Can I use my new phone numbers right away?
For the most part recently acquired phone numbers can be used immediately whereas some custom numbers require some time to use, we offer temporary numbers in these cases until your number is ready to be used.

Local numbers are the most commonly used numbers and they can be used to give a business the image that they are locally operated within a city or region.
Our local number search offers a city/region and an area code filter. Simply select the filter and type in your city or region and select it from the search results provided, then wait for the results to populate.
You can also use the area code filter if you are searching for a specific area code, simply select the filter, enter the area code and wait for the results to populate.
The custom number selector contains three filters, a key-word filter, a matching filter and a pricing filter. You can use these filters interchangeably to narrow down your search significantly saving time.
To use the key-word filter select the field and type in any word or set of words
The matching filter will work in the same way but will only show results that are an exact match.
Finally, add the pricing filter to only show the numbers within a certain price range.
Global Numbers can also be added, simply select the Global tile and select the country from the drop down list then check out the number once selected.
You can also use the city filter to narrow down the search if you are looking for a number from a particular city or region.
