DIDs Explained

A Direct Inward Dial number (DID), is a virtual number that functions as a regular phone number; however, it is not connected to any POTS line (landline).

Once you have completed your account configuration through the Telnyx portal, your DID will become the phone number at which anyone around the world can reach you.
