    • If the phone doesn't ring, try modifying the phone number to an international format.
      • For example, for a UK phone number add 0044 or +44 followed by the phone number, stripping the leading 0.
    • If the phone still doesn't ring when clicking Make Verification Call then investigate if the phone itself is working correctly.


The incorrect phone number was entered into an 8x8 Contact Center profile.
