Port toll-free numbers


Prerequisites

  • PureCloud Voice Admin role

PureCloud provides automated support for porting toll-free numbers that you manage with your current carrier into PureCloud Voice. You can enter individual numbers or you can use our downloadable template to port numbers into the system in bulk. 

The following procedure describes how to port toll-free numbers. This procedure works best when you have a few numbers to port. To port many toll-free numbers, use the bulk number porting feature. For more information, see Port numbers in bulk.


  1. Click Admin.
  2. Under PureCloud Voice, click Number Management.
  3. On the PureCloud Voice Number Inventory page, click the Port Numbers button and select Toll-Free.
  4. In the Toll-Free Numbers to Port box, select the country for which you want to port numbers. Then type the first toll-free number that you want to port in to PureCloud Voice.
    • Type the numbers with no spaces, dashes, or parentheses between the digits. For example: 8885551212.
    • To specify an extra number, press Enter or click Add
  5. From the Restrict to Calls From list, select the country or region from which you want to allow inbound calls. 
    • Only from US

    • From US, Canada and Caribbean
  6. If you are entering more than one toll-free number, you can select the same restriction for all the numbers you enter. Next to the first number, from the Restrict to Calls From list, select the restriction. Then, under Same restrictions for all porting number, click Yes.
  7. In the Activation Date and Time box, specify when the ported numbers become active.
