Login to your RingCentral Phone app

After you activated your new deskphone using the phone number you assigned to it, log in to the RingCentral Phone app using the same phone number.

After logging in to the RingCentral Phone app, you will now see the RingCentral Phone app on your online account under Phone & Numbers > Phones. It will not have a separate phone number because it shares the same number with the deskphone.
