The first time you use Bloobirds, before you are able to make calls, you will need to set up your Twilio account.

Here we explain you how to do it step by step:

Register on the webpage

To create an account, go to Twilio's webpage and fill in the form, accept the terms and conditions and click on Start your free trial.
 
 
You will be asked to confirm your email address.
 
 
 
And your phone number by introducing the code received.

Create an identity

Go to the section All Products & Services to create a bundle.
 
 
Watch out!
Before creating a bundle you must ensure that you have the regulatory documents required to buy a number in each country.
The name of the company, address and all data provided must be exactly the same as in the tax documents, including capital letters and name spelling. If it is not the case, it will be rejected.
 
Click on Phone numbers.
 
 
Go to the section Regulatory Compliance and click on Create a Regulatory Bundle.
