Can I forward an international phone number to SAS?
Although it is possible to forward your international number to Specialty Answering Service if your phone service provider offers this feature, it is not recommended. Because international calling rates are typically high, forwarding your number to SAS will result in a very costly phone bill. If you would like SAS to answer your calls, you have the following options:
If you have a U.S.-based local phone number, you can forward it to our DID number. If you do not have a U.S.-based local number, we can provide one for you. (Recommended.)
If you have an international toll-free phone number, you can forward it to our DID number. (Not recommended.)
You can advertise the local or toll-free number on your website, and all calls will be answered by SAS.
NOTE: Numbers provided by SAS are non-transferable. If at any point you suspend or cancel service, any number provided by SAS is not portable.
