Unable to receive calls nor send SMS

I've had my Zoom phone for about 2 months, and I've been able to make calls but have been unable to receive calls or text messages. Instead, the call goes to voicemail, and when a voicemail is left, it is not received on my end. I'm also unable to send a text message. The message states, "You do not have a direct number, you cannot start a new conversation."  If anyone is able to help, I'll greatly appreciate it.

Hi, what was the solution to be able to send a text message. As I too have the same issue. I can receive SMS, but not send. Thanks

I can't receive calls from Hawaii. I can send text messages though. Please advice me on what to do with issue as zoom phone is our primary means of communication.

Can you make calls to Hawaii? Can you receive calls from other states?

Hi @Ray_Harwood, yes I can make calls to Hawaii, but unfortunately, my team can't call me back. I can receive calls from other states as well

Interesting. It’ll be a few days before I can send you a private message – I’d like them to try calling my Zoom Phone to see if it’s something in your configuration, or a Zoom issue. And I might see if I can get my co-Champion @Eliot to chime in. 😎

I am thinking, if is it possible to just change my number, and use Honolulu based number.

It might not be necessary … but you could add a Honolulu number for $5/month, and have it automatically roll over to your current number. That could at least be a temporary fix.

Hi Ray

Thanks for your assistance. 

i am not sure i am following the process? If I already have a NY prefix number (zoom). Then how does having an additional Honolulu prefix number help? Does one enable/forward all SMS sent/received from the Honolulu or NY prefix number? 
is the Honolulu zoom phone nimber  a way to get around the SMS sending problem without a dedicated Us carrier phone number? 
Regards.

@mcs2 , I’ve been attempting to help @CharmG with receiving calls from Hawaii. Those replies are not directed to you. 

@mcs2, is your phone number assigned to a 10DLC campaign?  It must be, before the main carriers will allow your SMS traffic through their network.

Hi Ray. I am an individual person with zoom account and phone number registered to my company name,  (a non-US company) where i am sole employee. I tried to register 10DLC however as my company is s non-US it was rejected. Note I am an individual and not a company and living outside of USA. Would it make any difference if i changed my account from my company name to my individual? I can make and receive calls to and from USA as well as in Europe. All i want to be able to do is reply by text from my zoom number. It used to work, now it doesnt. Hope this information is helpful.

Hi CharmG, I was able to find a solution with @Ray_Harwood . He walked me through my settings and allowed me to get connected. I did purchase another line for SMS as well. I haven't given it a go just yet, but I'm interested to see how it works. I hope you get the solution you are seeking.
