SummaryHow do I add or purchase an IP phone or RingCentral Digital Line from the online account?
Details

A RingCentral SIP Phone is a phone that is purchased directly from RingCentral. All SIP phones purchased from RingCentral are pre-configured, with a Digital Line, and ready for use when plugged in to your network. 

A RingCentral Digital Line is assigned to your IP Phone or RingCentral for Desktop (Softphone) in order to make inbound and outbound calls. Unlike your Additional Numbers or Virtual Numbers, a RingCentral Digital Line allows you to receive and make direct outbound calls from your IP Phone and RingCentral desktop app simultaneously.
