What is the "Call Out" feature?
Call Out Feature
The easiest way to make calls from your Grasshopper number is from our Android or iPhone app . After installing and registering the app, you can begin making calls right away, without the need to enable outbound calling.
If for some reason you can't use our apps or you are using a landline, the Grasshopper Call Out feature lets you show your Grasshopper number as the Caller ID on other people’s phones. It’s great for maintaining the privacy of your own personal line, and for distributing your new Grasshopper number professionally.
How to use the Call Out Feature:
You can make Grasshopper calls from any phone but first you'll need to enable the Calling Card/Outbound Dialing feature on your account. Enabling Outbound Dialing on an extension is easy, all you have to do is ask! You can get in touch with our support team for activation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Once you have enabled the feature, you’ll need to register your phone number with us. To register your home/cell/office number, follow these instructions:
• Call (888) 989-8688 from the phone you want to call out with
• Enter your Grasshopper phone number followed by #
• Enter the Grasshopper extension that has Outbound Dialing enabled followed by #
• Enter the pin number for that extension
And don’t worry - if you have multiple lines, you can register each one to use this feature. This is a great option if you want all your employees to call out using you Grasshopper number!
Keep in mind! You'll need to enable the Calling Card feature on each extension you’d like to use Outbound Dialing with.
