If you are reading this, your VoIP provider is likely a Convos Yellow Partner. This means in order to use your existing phone number for Convos, you will need to transfer your phone number from your VoIP provider to Convos and will therefore lose access to the voice over IP (VoIP) capabilities. Convos is working on implementing our own VoIP capabilities. Namely: phone call forwarding features so that inbound and outbound calls are conveniently routed through to your personal number.
