The number that enters the Soft Switch from the phone company. DIDs—which you will need to purchase and provide to your clients—are the
phone numbers that you will answer for your clients. (This is normally, but not necessarily, a 10-digit number.) When a Soft Switch configuration screen asks for a DID, the number should be entered without parentheses, spaces, or dashes. (For example, enter 9495558766, NOT (949) 555-8766.)
