Direct Inward Dial

A DID number is one that exists on the public telephone network. When dialed, the carrier delivers through the platform and to you, based on the settings configured here. This allows inbound calls to bypass a Private Branch Exchange (PBX) or another routing to connect directly to the destination number.
