Join us in San Francisco on the 29/30th of October for two days of developer workshops and technical talks

Number Management

The easiest way to rent, configure and manage your numbers is to use the developer dashboard.

You can use the dashboard to:

Rent a virtual number

To rent a Nexmo virtual number:

  1. Sign in to the developer dashboard.
  2. In the left-hand navigation menu, click Numbers then Buy numbers.
  3. Choose the attributes you need and then click Search.
  4. Click the Buy button next to the number you want and validate your purchase.
  5. Your virtual number is now listed in Your numbers.
  6. If your account has no credit your virtual numbers are released for resale. To avoid this, enable auto-reload payments.

You rent each virtual number by the month. The renewal date is relative to the original subscription date. The rental price is automatically deducted from your Nexmo account on the same day every month. However, if you rented a virtual number on the last day of the month, the renewal date is last day of the next month. For example, if you rented a number on the 28th of February, subsequent renewal dates would be the 31st March, the 30th April, and so on.

Configure a virtual number

To configure a Nexmo virtual number:

  1. Sign in to the developer dashboard.
  2. In the left-hand navigation menu, click Numbers then Your numbers.
  3. Click the gear icon next to the number you want to configure.
  4. Edit your configuration as required and then click OK. (If you are changing a webhook endpoint, ensure that the new webhook endpoint is live first.)
