When placing an outbound call from your NumberBarn account using Call Back mode, you'll need to enter the phone number tied to the telephone or device you'll be placing your call from. Entering your NumberBarn number here will result in an error.
Follow these steps to resolve this issue:

- In your NumberBarn account, select Dialer from the navigation bar.
- Select the gear Settings icon to the left of the dialer.
- Select Call Back Mode by clicking in the box. You'll know it has been selected when it turns blue and a checkmark appears on the right.
- Enter the phone number of the physical telephone (landline or cell phone) that you'll be making your call from.
- Save your settings.
- From the main Dialer screen, enter the phone number of the party you'd like to reach. Click Call.
- The system will call you first at the physical telephone number that you entered into the settings box.
- When you answer, you'll be connected to the number of the party you'd like to reach.
All the while, your NumberBarn phone number will display as the outgoing caller ID. No one knows you're making this call on your cell phone.
