Local phone number FAQs
How can I order my local number and when can I start using it?
During the signup process, RingCentral will ask whether you want a local or a toll-free number.
As soon as signup is complete, you can begin using your new number.
Every RingCentral Office customer can order additional numbers for multiple locations, all of which will be synchronized with your account.
Why get a local phone number as opposed to a toll-free number?
Local customers receive the convenience of reaching you with a local call.
A local number creates a sense of being local to potential customers. For example, a realtor in the suburbs of Chicago with an 847 area code may want to advertise a phone number closer to central Chicago, within the 312 area code. Any phone calls to the 312 area code number can be forwarded to the realtor’s cell phone, home phone, etc.
Can I get multiple local numbers from different parts of the country, even if I don’t have offices there?
Yes. You can order as many numbers with as many local area codes as you like.
Does the area code of my phone number have to match my business address?
No. The area code, just like the physical location of your business, is entirely up to you. The two can be in entirely separate time zones. Some of the more popular area codes to choose from include 202 , 213 , 267 , 281 , 302 , 310 , 330 , 347 , 404 , 425 , 510 , 512 , 630 , 646 , 703 , 732 , 805 , 817 , 818 , 916 , 925 , and 949 .
What do you charge for local phone numbers?
Your plan includes one main, company-level phone and fax number, which can be either toll-free or local. Each additional local number is $4.99 a month and includes the same RingCentral features as your main number.
How can I instantly reply to voicemail using my phone and/or computer?
When you receive a voicemail, RingCentral can alert you via a text message on your cell phone.
You can dial into your account and listen to your voicemail at any time.
After you listen to your message, your Auto-Receptionist will ask you if you want to reply; if you do, simply press a number on your phone to automatically connect to the caller.
You can also reply to callers from your computer.
All calls and faxes are logged in your online account, and all phone numbers in your account are active links.
Clicking on a link will activate RingOut click-to-call dialing.
RingOut seamlessly connects you via the network phone you’re currently using with VoIP service.
