Setting Caller ID & Setting Area Codes
Step 1) To verify your caller IDs or the inbound phone numbers, make sure that the Dialer is ACTIVE. If you've already made a call, it probably is active unless you exited. To activate the dialer, click DIALER and choose Launch Dialer to activate it.
Step 2) Then go to Settings> Phone Dialer & Call Queue Lists
-If you've purchased inbound numbers, go to Inbound Numbers and select the # you want to add to your Caller ID (copy that #), Go to the Caller ID tab. -If you have an existing #, Go to the Caller ID tab.
Step 3) Enter in the phone number, give it a nickname (ie. "Office", "Cell") and add any associated area codes.
Step 4) Click VERIFY CALL.
Step 5) Answer the phone call. Enter the verification code next to the phone number. (You have to press the keypad icon
to type the #s in). If you've completed the verification call and the # still looks like it's not verified, click the blue hyperlink "Verify" and it will force the udpate.
Step 6) Set as the Active Caller ID or for Area Code Recognition
If you want to have different Caller IDs automatically display for different area codes, you can assign phone numbers to display as the caller ID when you call that specific area code. The Active Caller ID will be the default for any area codes not specifically set via the area code recognition. Click SET AS CALLER ID to make that number the Active (or Default) Caller ID.
In this example, we've added a California local Caller ID for the California area codes, a New York caller ID for NY area codes and are adding an Illinois caller ID for IL area codes. For all other area codes, the Active Caller ID will be the default phone number.
