When purchasing a DID number in certain countries, you will be required to complete a form that includes your contact details and other pertinent information. This information will be transferred to the local carrier for review. Please note that your DID might not be activated until your details are approved by the local carrier.
You will be notified by email during each step of the registration process and will be able to see the current status of your DIDs via your online account under the My DIDs menu option. Your DIDs will be held in a pending state until service approval is received.
