Twilio's virtual phone numbers give you instant access to local, national, mobile, and toll-free phone numbers in over 100 countries for your voice call and messaging applications. Leverage local phone numbers for your customers to call and text, or use your own number.
To verify that you and your customers don't receive unwanted calls and text messages meant for previous owners, every phone number available through the Phone Numbers API goes through a rigorous screening process, including meticulous testing of network providers.
With the Phone Numbers APIs, you can search for and buy available Twilio phone numbers, manage your Twilio numbers, port a phone number you own to Twilio, and more.
