How to start my virtual phone?

The first steps with your virtual phone. Read our tutorial on how to start your own virtual phone on Blacktel.io



Creating a Blacktel Account

To get started with your own virtual phone, you need an account. You can create an account on our website for free.

You can choose between a business account for your company or an individual account for your own use. Business and individual accounts come with different features that are adapted to your needs and requirements.

Please note: After creating your account, we would recommend you to upgrade your level, as this allows you access to further features and a higher quota.


Add Credits

After adding credits to your account, you are able to add a virtual phone number to your virtual phone. You can purchase credits via PayPal or different Crypto payment providers.


Adding a virtual number

You can view and select virtual numbers in your Dashboard using the „Manage Numbers“ option. Select a country of your liking, the service you need (for example: call+sms, call, sms ...) and then select your favorite virtual number from a list of available numbers.

Please note: We cannot guarantee a successful verification from third party companies such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Google and Co. with any virtual number. We always work on improving our system and try our best to make it possible.

When adding a virtual number to your account, you can choose between a Prepaid or Subscription Plan.

  • Our Prepaid Plan means that you pay as you go. Your virtual numbers will not be automatically renewed. You can choose for yourself how long you want to use a number and can renew it yourself if you want to use it longer. But please be careful, as expired numbers cannot be renewed again.
  • With our Subscription Plan, you do not have to take care of anything. We will renew your virtual phone numbers for you. You can cancel your subscription after each month. There are no hidden fees or costs.


Devices

The integration of your own devices is a clever way to combine your virtual phone with your real one. By adding a device to your account, you can use your virtual phone to make phone calls and to send SMS and fax with your real numbers.

Attention Devices can only be used to send messages and faxes and make phone calls. They will not listen to any incoming message or call like virtual numbers can do.

Virtual Phone is ready

After adding a virtual number or a device to your account, your virtual phone is ready and can be used for your calls, SMS and/or Fax.


Download the free Android or iOS App for Blacktel.io. The greatest asset of using our Blacktel App is that you can use your mobile phone without needing a SIM card.



With our app you only have to activate the push features for messages (SMS) and calls. This means that the Blacktel app works and runs in the background and provides incoming SMS and calls as soon as they come in. Just like they would in you cell phone. You can activate the push feature for either SMS or calls or for both. No more logging in to check your messages, we simplified this process altogether!
