Service Numbers

Service Numbers are verified company or personal phone numbers that you can use as your Caller IDs or SMS Sender IDs when making off-net calls or sending SMS texts to your visitors and customers. This helps your company establish a local presence in your customers' locations, regardless of where your business is physically based.

❗️

Service Numbers as your Caller IDs or SMS Sender IDs are not guaranteed to be displayed to your called parties or message recipients.
