Want to Dabble with the Dialer?

If you are on a Professional or Custom plan, you have access to the Apollo Dialer. However, on a Professional plan, you can only make calls within the United States. If you are on a Custom plan and want to make international calls with local phone numbers, you have come to the right place! First, verify that Apollo has enabled the Dialer on your account. Then, follow the instructions below to get dialing locally! If you cannot see the Dialer, contact your CSM or email Apollo Technical Support. For more general information about Dialer availability, please refer to the "Make and Receive VoIP calls" article.

The Apollo Dialer allows you to appear as if you're calling from a contact's local area code. Additionally, if a contact misses your call and they attempt to call you back at the local number you used, Apollo routes returned calls to the real phone number associated with your Apollo account.

Refer to the sections below for instructions on how to configure and use local numbers with Apollo's Dialer.
