Target Line for new 8xx code 833

Target Line for new 8xx code 833

Target Line for new 8xx code 833

(OP)
My BCM (6.0) will not let me use "833" numbers in the target line. How can we fix it to accept this new NNX?

RE: Target Line for new 8xx code 833

Dial 8 or look through all your fields on the BCM such as Dest codes an access codes and so on to find out what uses 8 and change it.

RE: Target Line for new 8xx code 833

(OP)
So we are talking "receive digits" on the target lines. "833" is a new Nxx for 800 service. The BCM does not recognize that new 8xx code. Anyone know where to go to fix that?

RE: Target Line for new 8xx code 833

See our above 2 answers we gave you..
If 8 is being used elsewhere then you cannot use 8.
If 83 is being used elsewhere then you cannot use 83.
If 833 is being used elsewhere then you cannot use 833.

And FYI: 800 numbers are just phantom numbers that point to actual phone numbers (NXX), it is the actual number you need to add as a Target.

Example:
1 800 222-2222 points to Landline/DID 416 567-1234

The carrier sends a set of received digits (the last set), this can be 3 to 10 digits long and starts at the end of the number
234 would be 3 digits sent

Check your BCM to see the Dialing Plan/Received Number Length (you can also look at other Target lines to see how many digits were added)
As long as you enter the same or more than what the carrier sends you are ok.

So the Target line entry would be as follows...

Carrier sends 3 digits - Target Line = 234
Carrier sends 4 digits - Target Line = 1234
Carrier sends 5 digits - Target Line = 71234

Carrier sends 7 digits - Target Line = 5671234

Carrier sends 10 digits - Target Line =

Example of entering more then what the carrier sends:
Carrier sends 3 digits - Target Line = 4165671234 is exceptable

This is a 8xx number provided by Voip.Ms and I am sure it is related to the fact that in the last year they released 833 as the new 800 service number. My BCM works with all the standard 877, 866, 833, etc.

RE: Target Line for new 8xx code 833

"My BCM works with all the standard 877, 866, 833, etc."
Is this a typo?

"I am sure it is related to the fact that in the last year they released 833 as the new 800 service number."
Has no effect on the BCM unless as already stated those digits are in use.
It will effect Restrictions if 1 is one of the digits restricted.

I did not know Toll Free numbers were now acting like physical numbers but after reading looks like falling under Virtual DID's

Bottom line is if the BCM will not let you enter or use 8, 83 or 833 then once again re-read the answers above.
