1.Click Get New Number.
The Select Country for Phone # Search dialog will be displayed.

3.Select the type to search phone number from the Select Type drop down list.
The search parameters can vary depending on what country you are searching for. Some countries allow searching on area code and zip code. You may also see different options depending on system setup.
Note: The 1st number (primary) is always free and included with your account. However, depending on system configuration, if you need additional(secondary) numbers, you may need to purchase a numbers subscription package first, which will give you access to purchase that many more numbers depending on the package you purchased. The popup window you will see in this case is below.
The Choose a Phone Number dialog will be displayed.

The Voice Credits simply shows how many voice credits the user has left in their account. In the example here, 100 voice credits are present.

You may also change the time zone.
