A Vanity Number is a personalized phone number that also corresponds to a distinctive combination of letters on the telephone keypad, such as 1-888-MTRGAGE or 1-888-GARDENS, that is easy to remember. Administrators can add a Vanity Number through the RingCentral Online Account, or through the RingCentral mobile app.

NOTE: The Vanity Number you chose will be added to your list of Pending Numbers. Pending Numbers are not yet active on your account, either because you are transferring them from another provider or have requested a vanity number, which can take time to activate. We work to make the process as fast as possible, but some carriers have a long turnaround times. When you tap Cancel, you will be redirected to your Company Numbers list, where you can view your Pending Numbers when you scroll down.
