Unable to Claim Phone Numbers as Number Count Shows as Negative


Unable to claim phone numbers in Admin Console as the number count is showing as negative.


Applies To

  • Admin Console
  • Claiming Phone Numbers


This is caused when number licenses are cancelled from the account but the numbers claimed with those licenses have not been returned to the 8x8 pool.


Opt 1: Return available numbers (of the same country) to the pool to level out the balance and free up licenses.

Op 2: Raise a new order for the amount that is showing negative + the number of licenses needed to claim new numbers.
