Outbound calling

We have now added outgoing calling to our offerings. If you would like outgoing calling added to your account, please call us at 800-800-4321 or you can send an email to support@800.com.

When enabled, you can place a call at any time by clicking on the "Make A Phone Call" button on the bottom of the column on the left of your user interface.

This will open a dialer window where a call can be placed. You can use the keypad or type the number in the "Enter Number To Call" box on the top of this window. If you have multiple numbers on your account, you can use the drop down box at the bottom where it says "Call From Number" to select the number from which you wish to place the call.

You can also utilize this feature through a communication from your "Inbox" in the column on the left of the web portal.  And clicking on the communication to which you would like to place a call. Otherwise, the process is the same.

Caller ID:

On occasion, specific carriers will display something like "scam likely" or "toll free call" instead of the toll-free number, when placing outbound calls. 800.com does not have the ability to alter what is displayed the caller ID for outbound calls, as the only information that is sent from our service is the toll-free number. The toll-free numbers are then interpreted by the receiving carrier based on information contained in their systems. There are work-arounds for these issues through various third-party sources. Here are some links to assist you:

 

 
If these types of messages are appearing when calls are placed to other carriers, you may be able to find resolutions on their respective websites. If you find a work-around that we are not aware of, please provide the link to us at support@800.com so we can update our articles.
